tim’s whole purpose is to support the future of Australian businesses by bringing businesses like yours, tomorrow’s cash flow today.

We understand just how confusing invoice financing fees can be, so we’ve made sure tim is 100% fee-free. That’s right — tim doesn’t have any of the nasty, convoluted fees our competitors are so good at hiding in the fine print.

With tim, there’s just one simple, fair discount rate on any invoice you choose to cash-flow. No lock-ins, no property security, no nonsense.
Get up to 80% of your invoice as cash now, with the remainder (minus our pre-agreed discount rate) paid to you when your debtor pays.
Simple. Flexible. Fair.
Exactly how we think business should be.

tim in the press

We get a real buzz every time we’re acknowledged in the press or receive an industry award.

Not as big a buzz as the one we get when we help another Australian business succeed. But a buzz nevertheless.

Each time we’re recognised, it serves as a friendly reminder that we’re doing things the right way.

Rather than the old way.
