Apparel Finance is for companies that design, license or manufacture apparel products and require working capital to produce goods and / or extend open credit terms to customers. Apparel Finance can be used to open up letters of credit to suppliers and / or provide credit protection on approved customers. Funding parameters are typically based on the credit worthiness of the accounts and the percentage of historical returns.
The most common types of apparel funding are:
- Asset Based Lending
- Purchase Order Funding
- Accounts Receivable Funding
- Invoice Factoring
- SBA Loans
The type of Apparel Finance that is available to a company will depend on factors including length of time in business, strength of the customers base and profitability of the business. The percentage of customers returns will be an important factor in determining the advance rate that the lender applies against the eligible collateral.
New and established brands can typically secure apparel financing and funding can be provided on a recourse or non-recourse basis. Apparel Finance is typically used to bridge the gap between paying suppliers and receiving payment from the customer.
While there are several forms of Apparel Finance available, each has its positives and negatives. In many cases more than one form of financing can be used to generate capital. Choosing the right working capital facility with the right lender can make all the difference.
