Service companies play a very necessary but unique role in our economy. Service companies can be found in every industry, but they do not provide tangible goods, like traditional product-based businesses. The services these companies provide are invaluable, but finding adequate financing to maintain and grow their operations can be challenging.
Securing traditional loans can be difficult for any small business. Lenders set requirements for credit ratings and collateral to qualify for loans, but since service companies do not have physical goods, real estate, or other large assets, they might not meet the requirements for most loan programs. Even non-traditional lending, such as a merchant advance, requires a point-of-sale system to repay the balance. Alternative lending places the majority of the risk on the applicant, so there are usually additional fees and high interest rates, as well. Sin
