Suppressed by tight cash flow, this anonymous Australian engineering consultancy firm was becoming increasingly worried about covering their accumulating expenses and wages, whilst also finding the investment capital available to fuel future growth. The most frustrating thing for this consultancy firm, was that the imbalance in their cash flow was not brought upon by poor management, or a lack of business, but instead by one of the most common challenges that impede small businesses in Australia. This silent cash flow killer, late and unpaid invoices. When traditional financing solutions were taking too long to be approved, and the credit limits imposed were unreasonable, our private personalised lending solution at Brunswick Invoice Finance provided an immediate lifeline to this business which otherwise seemed impossible. 

Meet our client and their challenges
Over 12 months ago, an anonymous small Australian engineering consultancy firm reached out to us at Brunswick Invoice Finance, like many small businesses, this firm was struggling with their cash flow. A tight cash flow led to suppressed investing opportunities, which made it hard for the owner to not only invest in the growth of their business, but to also keep up with the simple operational costs that includes but is not limited to staff wages. With late and unpaid invoices being the main catalyst for this business's cash flow struggles, the owner highlighted that their greatest challenge was how they handled their outstanding invoices. desperately seeking a cash flow buffer to allow for more flexibility in their business to enable investment opportunities into new markets and future clients, the consultancy firm looked towards our personalised and private financing solutions as an answer.  


Getting Started with Brunswick:
To get started our CEO, Sarah, sat down with the consultancy firm to discuss their unique financing needs and opportunities. Within these initial meetings, Sarah was able to personalise a tailored approach to best align our financing solutions with the consultancy's unique needs and situation. The owner of the firm has stated that Sarah and the team throughout their entire relationship has always been “friendly and good at answering questions”. 

Within these initial meetings, the owner of the consultancy firm was able to identify how Brunswick financing was different to traditional financing methods. “There was a couple of key advantages, one of them being their flexibility. Banks often have a lengthy process for approval and are often limiting in their credit allowances. Not only that but because Brunswick is a small business themselves, Sarah and the team are good at understanding the challenges and risks that small business owners face”. It was because of these evident advantages that the owner of the consultancy firm was confident in choosing to work with Brunswick Finance Invoice as opposed to other traditional financing options.
