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. Once established, the line of credit can be drawn, repaid and used repeatedly.

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.
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.
