Starting Your Commercial Finance Consultancy Business

In theory, it’s great if your business can suit everyone’s financial needs but unless you have the proper support, financial and otherwise, you can find yourself walking a very tight rope.

There are commercial training companies that will not only show you the ropes but introduce you to lenders as well. I’ve worked with the team at Commercial Capital Training Group and they are one of the best in terms of support and practical application.

Once you’ve made the decision to start a commercial finance consultancy business, there are a few important steps you should take:

• Research License Requirements – Are there any certifications or special licensing requirements that are needed? I recommend checking your state’s laws on licensing to ensure that you can advise clients on their commercial projects without violating SEC regulations. What role are you playing in your client’s business? How will you be compensated for introducing them to a capital lender? Speak with your attorney.

• Research and Establish Your Company Name – Think of a few names that convey your businesses message and research them to ensure they’re not being used by someone else. Also, unless you have the ability to directly lend money, make sure your clients know that your firm is a consultancy. Once you’ve decided on your name, register your business. Legalzoom is a great one stop shop for legally creating your corporate entity.

• Create your business plan – As boring as it may be, you must have a business plan. I’m always astonished when I speak with new consultants and ask them about their company goals and they respond with “to close more deals”, yet they have no road map for this accomplishment. One of the keys to being successful in this field is having your goals written out. A business plan is not written stone, it can and should be modified as your business grows or changes direction.

• Create your marketing plan – How do you plan on securing new business? Without customers, you have no business, so it’s imperative that you have a plan in place for securing new clients (see our article on Finding Customers). Once your marketing plan is complete, it will also give you a good indication of what your company’s website should contain.

• Meet your Lenders – Here’s where attending the commercial training classes really come in handy. Aside from ongoing support, they can introduce you to a myriad of institutional and private lenders that want your client’s business. If you’re on your own, I would start locally with bankers and private lenders who specialize in corporate finance. Once you fully understand the type of financing they offer, you can seek out clients that fit their parameters.

• Design your loan packages – Now that you have lenders, you can create loan packages for your clients. Make them clean and as succinct as possible because you may also use them as marketing material on your website.

A consultant’s job is to consult. Nothing more, nothing less. But what will separate you from the pack is your passion and knowledge. Take heed to the above steps and you’ll be on your way to becoming a successful commercial finance consultant.

Commercial Financing – Know How it Works

Commercial financing for small to mid-sized businesses requires innovation. Business owners need to be pragmatic when it comes to growing their businesses. But, they also need money when opportunity comes knocking. One way they are taking control of their business growth is by using a commercial financing process that allows them to auction off their accounts receivable.

Here’s how it works:

1. Apply online – The receivables auction marketplace offers an application for membership online. The small to mid-sized company owner can fill this out in about 15 minutes. Once the application and necessary financial documents are received, approval for membership takes about two weeks on average.

2. Download auction application – Once approved for receivables trading, the new seller can download the application to their computer. This desktop application provides access to the live, online receivables auction platform where buyers and sellers have 24/7 access to auctions and transactions.

3. Choose invoices – Now, the seller is ready to choose the accounts receivable they want to post for auction. As long as long as the total auction amount exceeds $10,000, the seller can post any commercial invoices they want.

Tip: The best way to get cash quickly and efficiently is to post invoices of well-known, investment-grade account debtors with great credit histories. These tend to get snapped up quickly and receive the best rates of capital.

4. Set parameters and post – The seller maintains control by setting the parameters of the auction. The seller decides the minimum advance amount they will accept from bidders, the maximum discount fee they will pay and how long the auction will last. The seller can decide to run it from 3-10 days.

5. Sale transaction occurs – There are two ways this can occur. When the auction closes, the Buyer with the highest bid that meets the parameters set by the seller wins the auction. The other option is that the seller can set a “Buyout Price”. This is similar to the “buy it now” option on eBay. When a Buyer agrees to the “Buyout Price” the auction is immediately closed and awarded to that Buyer.

6. Get commercial financing fast – When the sale goes through, the funds are electronically deposited into an account for the seller. This happens within 24 hours of the auction close.

With cash in hand, possibly in as little as one day, small to mid-sized business owners give themselves an advantage over the competition. They have the means to grow their business now instead of waiting for invoice payments to come in. Commercial financing using their accounts receivable allows them to tap into funds that normally take 30-90 days to come in.

Typically, about 60% of a small business’ working capital is sitting dormant in the form of invoices. Put these assets to work by getting this money now instead of later. Through invoice financing, small to mid-sized business owners can control the fate of their ventures with little risk, few restrictions and total control. Opportunities won’t wait.

5 Things You Need To Know About Commercial Finance

Introduction

Most people, especially “first time buyers”, tend to think only in terms of approaching their own banks when it comes to arranging finance. There are, however, other sources. There are Commercial mortgage Lenders, Asset Finance Lenders, Lenders that specialise in factoring/invoice discounting, lenders that can provide finance based on existing pensions, refinancing of existing commercial finance and much, much more. Also consider a personal loan or mortgage.

What Security Do You Have For The Loan

For large commercial loans, commercial finance lenders usually require land and buildings as security for the loan. In the current economic climate it is very difficult to get finance for more than 70% of the value of the loan – although in a very limited number of cases – not impossible! If you are looking for more than 70% – be prepared to look for other alternatives. For smaller loans, vehicles, plant, equipment etc. may be acceptable. Some lenders even allow you to refinance equipment that you already own (say a car) thereby enabling you to release capital into your business.

Which Commercial Finance Sector Does Your Application Fall Into

Not every lender is interested in lending across the complete range of business sectors. They are competitive only in the sectors in which they are keen to lend. For example, land and property – mortgages, vehicles, plant and machinery – asset finance. You should therefore decide which business sector your requirement falls in.

What Is Your Credit History

The better your credit history the lower the interest rate that you will have to pay. If your credit history is not perfect (and in this current credit crunch very little is being seen as perfect credit history) you will need to be applying to a specialist commercial finance lender.

Government Grants

The UK government provide various grants for businesses. Some of the most common are Under the Small Firms Loan Guarantee Schemes [EFG] (which are easy to set up),. 75% of risk is taken by Government and provides another way of introducing vital growth capital to small businesses. Not available if there is existing potential security such as high equity in property where a secured loan could be set up.

R&D Tax Credits can be available to companies who carry out any research and development, including engineering, software, computer hardware or any product development, can be eligible for claiming R & D tax credits. This can mean the equivalent of an injection of capital for as much as £70,000.

DTI Marketing [and other] Government grants can be available to companies in most sectors for the development of business by using DTI Marketing (and other) Grants.

Approach A Lender Direct Or Use A Broker.

When obtaining a commercial loan, the Lender usually charges a fee for providing the loan. If you decide you use a Broker then the Broker will also usually charge a fee for arranging the loan. Whilst the natural reaction is to approach Lenders direct, a Broker will deal with lots of lenders covering many different sectors and so can be more efficient in the long run. A good Broker will be able to provide help in sourcing of finance for all of the above loan and more.

Commercial Finance – The Mortgage Meltdown

Banks lend money to people and businesses. The money is used for investment purposes and consumer purchases like food, cars and houses. When these investments are productive the money eventually finds its way back to the bank and an overall liquidity of a well functioning economy is created. The money cycles round and round when the economy is functioning effectively.

When the market is disrupted financial markets tend to seize up. The liquidity cycle may slow, freeze up to a degree or stop completely. This is true because banks are highly leveraged. A well capitalized bank is only required to have 6% of their assets in core capital. It is estimated that the residential mortgage meltdown will cause credit losses of about $400 billion dollars. This credit loss is about 2% of all U.S. equities. This hurts the bank’s balance sheets because it impacts their 6% core capital. To compensate, banks have to charge more for loans, pay less for deposits and create higher standards for borrowers which leads to less lending.

Why did this happen? Once upon a time after the great depression of the 1930′s a new national banking system was created. Banks were required to join to meet high standards of safety and soundness. The purpose was to prevent future failures of banks and to prevent another disastrous depression. Savings and Loans (which still exist but call themselves Banks today) were created primarily to lend money to people to buy houses. They took their depositor’s money, lent it to people to buy homes and held these loans in their portfolio. If a homeowner failed to pay and there was a loss, the institution took the loss. The system was simple and the institutions were responsible for the building of millions of homes for over 50 years. This changed drastically with the invention of the secondary market, collateralized debt obligations which are also know as collateralized mortgage obligations.

Our government created the Government National Mortgage Association (commonly known as Ginnie Mae) and the Federal National Mortgage Association (commonly known as Fannie Mae) to purchase mortgages from banks to expand the amount of money available in the banking system to purchase homes. Then Wall Street firms created a way to expand the market exponentially by bundling up home loans in clever ways that allowed originators and Wall Street to make big profits. The big stock market firms were securitizers of mortgage-backed securities and resecuritizers who sliced and diced different parts of the groups of home loans to be bought and sold in the stock market based on prices set by the market and market analysts. Home loans, packaged as securities, are bought and sold like stocks and bonds.

In the quest to do more and more business, the standards to get a loan were lowered to a point where, at least in some cases, if a person wanted to buy a house and could assert they could pay for it they received the loan. Borrowers with weak or poor credit histories were able to get loans. There was little risk to the lender because unlike the earlier days when home loans were held in their portfolios, these loans were sold and if the loans defaulted the investors or purchasers of these loans would take the losses i.e. not the bank making the loan. The result today is tumult in our economy from the mortgage meltdown which has disrupted the overall financial system and affects all lending in a negative way.

Who is responsible for this situation? All loan originators, including banks, are responsible for turning a blind eye to loans that were based on poor credit criteria. Under the label of “subprime” loans there were low documentation loans, no documentation loans and very high loan to value loans- many of which are the foreclosures we read about on a daily basis. Wall Street is responsible for pumping this system into a financial disaster that may grow from the current $400 billion dollar estimate to over a trillion dollars. Realtors, mortgage brokers, home buyers and speculators are responsible for their willingness to pay higher and higher prices for homes on the belief that prices would only go higher and higher. This basically fueled the system for the mortgage meltdown.

Are there any similarities to the saving and loan crisis of the 1980′s? Between 1986 and 1995 Savings and Loans (S&L’s) lost about $153 billion. The institutions were regulated by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board and the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation. These entities passed laws that required the S&L’s to make fixed rate loans only for their portfolios. The rates that could be charged for these loans were determined by the marketplace. Imagine an institution with $100 million in loans at 6% to 8%. For years the interest rates on deposits were also regulated by the government. The interest rate spread between the two allowed institutions to make a small profit.

In 1980 the U.S. Congress passed the Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act of 1980 (DIDMCA). A committee was established in Congress. Over a period of years the committee deregulated the rates S&L’s could pay on savings. Nothing was changed with respect to what could be charged for home loans. Many institutions started to loose huge amounts of money because they had to pay market rates of 10% to 12% for their savings, yet they were stuck with their old 6% to 8% loans. Some executives in the savings and loan business referred to this committee as the damned idiots in Washington.

Many books have been written about these events. There is documented evidence of substantial wrongdoing by S&L executives who were trying to invest funds to save their institutions, sometimes for personal gains. Some were sophisticated criminals. Congress recognized their mistake in 1982 when the Garn-St.Germain Depositary Institutions Act was passed to allow S&Ls to diversify their activities to increase their profits. It also allowed S&L’s to make variable rate loans. It was too little too late. After bankrupt institutions were liquidated by the government, the surviving S&Ls were assessed billions of dollars by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to replenish the fund that insures the depositors of all U.S. banking institutions.
The mortgage meltdown and the savings and loan crises are similar with regard to the presence of greed and criminal activity. They are very different with respect to the fact that the S&L crises originated from a broken government mandated regulatory system and the mortgage meltdown has been caused primarily by a system that went wild with greed.

This has impacted non-bank lenders such as private commercial finance companies that provide hard money real estate loans, purchase order financing and accounts receivable financing. Most of these firms have raised their prices and their origination standards for safety and soundness of operations.

Commercial Financing – The Benefits of Off-Balance-Sheet Financing

There are two different categories of commercial financing from an accounting perspective: on-balance-sheet financing and off-balance-sheet financing. Understanding the difference can be critical to obtaining the right type of commercial financing for your company.

Put simply, on-balance-sheet financing is commercial financing in which capital expenditures appear as a liability on a company’s balance sheet. Commercial loans are the most common example: Typically, a company will leverage an asset (such as accounts receivable) in order to borrow money from a bank, thus creating a liability (i.e., the outstanding loan) that must be reported as such on the balance sheet.

With off-balance-sheet financing, however, liabilities do not have to be reported because no debt or equity is created. The most common form of off-balance-sheet financing is an operating lease, in which the company makes a small down payment upfront and then monthly lease payments. When the lease term is up, the company can usually buy the asset for a minimal amount (often just one dollar).

The key difference is that with an operating lease, the asset stays on the lessor’s balance sheet. The lessee only reports the expense associated with the use of the asset (i.e., the rental payments), not the cost of the asset itself.

Why Does It Matter?

This might sound like technical accounting-speak that only a CPA could appreciate. In the continuing tight credit environment, however, off-balance-sheet financing can offer significant benefits to any size company, from large multi-nationals to mom-and-pops.

These benefits arise from the fact that off-balance-sheet financing creates liquidity for a business while avoiding leverage, thus improving the overall financial picture of the company. This can help companies keep their debt-to-equity ratio low: If a company is already leveraged, additional debt might trip a covenant to an existing loan.

The trade-off is that off-balance-sheet financing is usually more expensive than traditional on-balance-sheet loans. Business owners should work closely with their CPAs to determine whether the benefits of off-balance-sheet financing outweigh the costs in their specific situation.

Other Types of Off-Balance-Sheet Financing

An increasingly popular type of off-balance-sheet financing today is what’s known as a sale/leaseback. Here, a business sells property it owns and then immediately leases it back from the new owner. It can be used with virtually any type of fixed asset, including commercial real estate, equipment and commercial vehicles and aircraft, to name a few.

A sale/leaseback can increase a company’s financial flexibility and may provide a large lump sum of cash by freeing up the equity in the asset. This cash can then be poured back into the business to support growth, pay down debt, acquire another business, or meet working capital needs.

Factoring is another type of off-balance-sheet financing. Here, a business sells its outstanding accounts receivable to a commercial finance company, or “factor.” Typically, the factor will advance the business between 70 and 90 percent of the value of the receivable at the time of purchase; the balance, less the factoring fee, is released when the invoice is collected.

Like with an operating lease, no debt is created with factoring, thus enabling companies to create liquidity while avoiding additional leverage. The same kinds of off-balance-sheet benefits occur in both factoring arrangements and operating leases.

Keep in mind that strict accounting rules must be followed when it comes to properly distinguishing between on-balance-sheet and off-balance-sheet financing, so you should work closely with your CPA in this regard. But with the continued uncertainty surrounding the economy and credit markets, it’s worth looking into the potential benefits of off-balance-sheet financing for your company.

Calamine Lotion Benefits

Calamine lotion has been around for a long time and was always used in the medical environment. Obviously, it isn’t as strong as most antiseptic chemicals but it is a lotion that prevents itching.

Calamine lotion can be used for various treatments which include damaged and itchy skin. When skin gets damaged it will get itchy because the cells are breaking and tearing apart. It may sound painful but the itch is what really gets to you. And who can resist scratching an itch?

Coming into contact with poisonous plants is common when camping or spending the day in a garden. These are plants that use poison as a self defence mechanism to save themselves from being cut or eaten. It’s also important to know your allergies as some people may have allergic reactions to certain plants. The calamine lotion can help to soothe the burning feeling and prevents any breakouts at the same time. This will help heal the rash and infection quicker in a painless way.

Baby skin is very sensitive to most surfaces including their nappies. The calamine lotion can help to heal the nappy rash or anything of the sort without burning your child’s skin. Keeping the rash as soothed as possible will make your child more comfortable.

Insect bites are common in any area of the world. These bites could also be slightly poisonous (in certain cases) which causes itching and inflation on the skin. Applying calamine lotion to the bite will soothe the wound and assist with the process of ridding the body of the harmless poison. Please remember that certain insects can also be dangerously poisonous and you should be aware of which insects and spiders can harm you greatly. Most insects that have many bright colours are often associated with high toxic levels.

Calamine lotion also assists with stretch marks and broken skin that occurs during pregnancy. There is nothing worse than having discomfort during pregnancy especially if it could be treated or prevented. Adding calamine lotion to your broken and itchy skin relieves the surface of the discomfort.

You can also apply it to other skin problems such as acne, dryness, eczema, psoriasis and as a normal moisturiser to improve complexion and quality of skin.

Calamine lotion can be found in most stores or in bulk quantities at cash and carry wholesale stores. If skin problems continue after the use of any treatments, there is a chance that your body is unable to cure itself of the infection. In such cases you would need to consult a dermatologist to find out the cause of the problem.

Remove Unwanted Facial And Body Hair Using Laser Treatment

Removing unwanted hair is time-consuming and repetitive no matter what your preferred hair removal technique is, and whether you shave, pluck, wax, thread or use depilatory creams, the hair will always grow back. You’ll find the skin on your face is sensitive, and constantly using harsh hair removal treatments can cause a great deal of skin irritation.

All women have hair on the face, usually it’s fair and fine and is difficult to see, but those with darker hair are not so lucky. You will find that most of your female friends have the same issues when it comes to unwanted facial hair. The hair on the upper lip, chin, cheeks and sideburns can all be very embarrassing and cause you a great deal of insecurity. It seems that every time you think you’ve disposed of unwanted hair, you’ll find more of it sprouting up somewhere else, and even after you get rid of the hairs, they just grow back.

You can cover up your excess hair in areas that aren’t constantly exposed, but the hair on your face is always on display, and it can seem as though everyone is always looking at the hairs on your upper lip, chin or sideburns. A good way to get rid of unwanted hair is with laser hair removal.

Benefits of laser hair removal:

It permanently reduces hair safely
It’s a fast treatment time
The results will boost your self-confidence
Prevents razor bumps and irritation
Laser treatment causes only minimal discomfort
Laser energy gets absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, and this laser energy is then converted to heat, causing thermal damage to the follicle without harming the surrounding skin. This results in hair growth being stopped in the damaged follicle.
Generally for white skin you’ll need around 6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and this usually results in 80% of hair removal. Darker or black skin may need around 8 treatments, resulting again in 80% of hair removed.

Most clients experience minimal discomfort; some may experience a minor stinging or pinching sensation on the skin as we deliver the laser pulses, but we can offer topical anaesthetic cream to make treatments more comfortable.

Although we can perform laser hair removal treatment on white or black skin, lasers only work on hair which has pigment, because it absorbs the laser light and allows the heat to build up and diffuse throughout the follicle to destroy it. Therefore it’s not possible to treat white, grey, and blond hair by laser.

If you need help choosing a cosmetic procedure, we provide an extensive range of cosmetic procedures for the face and body: Botox, Vaser Lipo, Lip Augmentation, Dermal Fillers and many more treatments, to help create a younger, slimmer, more youthful looking you!

The Selston Cosmetic Clinic is located in Selston, Nottingham, where we offer a bespoke service with a personalised touch and deliver high client satisfaction. We have been involved in the cosmetic industry for over 10 years
