What is Import Finance?

Does your business need funding to cover the working capital costs, from the time you receive a purchase order from your overseas customers until the goods arrive and are paid for (by your customer), if so then TIM’s Import Finance is the solution for you.

Our solutions allow you to retain the capital in your business until the goods are delivered to your customer overseas and paid for. If required, TIM will also manage your entire logistics, freight forwarding and forex, with no property security required. Once established, the line of credit can be drawn, repaid and used repeatedly.

Import finance will help you to close the funding gap between an order received from an Australian customer and the payment required by your overseas supplier/s.

Using an import finance facility will ease the pressure on cash flow and can take care of all of the complex paperwork and procedures that come with it. TIM’s Import Finance or Accelerator Plus product can fund up to 90% of overseas purchases; freight, duty and GST, all the way through to the point where your customer pays your invoice.

Import Finance can be used by any business that import goods or wants to import goods to sell to other businesses.

Our funding solution is tailored to meet the specific needs of each business and can be structured to provide total funding for periods up to 150 days.

Import Finance can be used for a wide variety of imported products that are used for onsale to your Australian customers.. Please contact our experienced staff members and they will quickly determine what is required to get your funding underway.

No property guarantees are required as we take security over the product you are importing.

Import Finance is very competitively priced. We partner with the largest logistics provider in Australia to ensure your freight costs are the lowest possible. The total all-in fees vary depending on your business, the type of products, the time to manufacture and specific requirements in order to ensure they are as low as possible.

Why use TIM’s Import Finance?

  • Release of working capital

    TIM replaces the capital you normally have to outlay for import transactions allowing you to deploy your cash elsewhere in growing your business.

  • One point of contact

    With TIM you are not locked into repayments on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. In fact, there are no repayments at all because TIM is not a bank or like other ‘unsecured’ cash flow lenders and does not force businesses into ongoing loan facilities with fixed repayment terms. All you pay is a low pre-agreed fee and only at the time when your client pays their invoice/s.

  • Guaranteed quality

    With our staff on the ground in China, Asia and the USA, the Quality Control (QC) of your product is managed by TIM before leaving the factory to ensure quality standards expected by Australian companies. The quality of the goods are guaranteed each and every time, so you do not have to worry about goods or raw materials arriving with defects or at sub-par standards.

  • No below the line costs

    Eliminate the need to use standard or averages in determining the cost and sale-price of imported goods by having to deal with exchange rates and changing logistics costs. The price quoted by TIM is the all-inclusive Australian dollar price per shipment delivered to your business, with nothing more to pay.
