If you’re trying to raise cash advances in this way then you’ll find that providers will most certainly have very different eligibility criteria than you’ll find with lenders. A merchant cash advance is not covered by the usual loan legislation as it is not a loan or a form of lending. Your business would agree to ‘sell’ a percentage of its future cleared debit and credit card transactions, to a provider, in exchange for a lump sum of working capital (which is, effectively, the purchase price). Many businesses will find that a MCA is flexible and there is a huge advantage that repayments are linked to the amount of money you are processing – so, when times are good you’re paying back more but when times are slow (such as in seasonal trades) then the repayments are lower.
With a merchant cash advance it also means that there is no fixed time frame for delivery of the purchased receivables – the provider will only be paid as your business gets paid. This obviously differs quite fundamentally from say, a bank loan, where there is no flexibility of amounts or terms.
Generally speaking when you are raising cash advances in this way you are usually able to spend this lump sum (or additional working capital as some will call it) on any business related requirement.
