What is Invoice Discounting
“Cash is King” and never more so than in business. Businesses need cash to operate. They need to purchase supply inputs, pay staff, as well as cover bills such as rent, equipment leases, telco and energy costs, and they also need money to invest and grow.
All too often this cash is borrowed in the form of high interest unsecured loans or an overdraft. Whereas most businesses actually already have the money – there are usually thousands of dollars tied up in unpaid invoices at any one time. Invoice discounting unlocks that money. By getting your money upfront, instead of waiting 30 to 90+ days for an invoice to be paid, or needing to offer customers discounts for early payment, businesses can meet many of their funding needs including major investments with invoice discounting.
It’s the smart use of money.
Typically, you receive up to 90% of your invoice/s value up front, in cash. You then receive the balance of the invoice/s, less the tim. agreed discount fee when your debtor/s pay your invoice/s.
You can essentially get as much as 90% of your total accounts receivable ledger, at any given time. Our easy-to-use calculator can help you work out how much money you could raise.
tim. has no application fees to establish a Funding Account. So, there are no upfront fees before you receive funds from tim.
All you pay is a one-off amount on the invoices funded and only when your debtors pay their invoices. What this means is that you make no interest repayments.
Yes! That’s it. Simple and fair.
Why should I go with tim?
We have funded over $310 million, to over 120 Australian businesses representing 18,000+ invoices.
Here are just a few of the many benefits of working with tim.:
Low risk – Protection against your client not paying you or defaulting on payment to your business with timSecure™ funding.
If you issue invoices and your client (the debtor fails to pay, and your business has not committed a fraudulent transaction) timSecure™ steps in and protects you and covers up to 90% of the funding and can also cover the legal costs to chase the client (debtor) if they fail to pay you. This is unlike business loans where you run the risk of losing your business as well as personal assets in case of a default.
Low cost – No interest & no repayments
With tim, interest is not charged at all and you are not locked into repayments on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. In fact, there are no repayments at all because tim. is not a bank or like other ‘unsecured’ cash flow lenders and does not force businesses into ongoing loan facilities with fixed repayment terms. All you pay is a low pre-agreed fee and only at the time when your client pays the invoice.
No restrictive contracts or lock-in periods
Flexible and tailored funding solution for your business. Your business is not burdened with ongoing contracts and repayment schedules. You can raise the cash flow against invoices whenever it suits you and your requirements.

tim.’s invoice finance facility is available to every Australian business that invoices other businesses (B2B). We offer flexible funding facilities ranging from $50K to $5M. Even if you can’t get a business loan or overdraft, you can qualify for invoice discounting it is based on your current sales, not your past.

How does invoice discounting compare to bank loans or unsecured loans?
When calculating the cost of loans, you must consider all the small print, set up fees and other costs as well as the annual interest. Invoice discounting is much simpler: it’s based on a fixed, pre-agreed fee and is NOT a debt at all. There are no repayments, no interest.
Is it risky?
No. Non-payment of the invoice is a risk, but with our timSecure™ solution your business is protected. Most importantly, there’s no need to plan for re-payment as there are no repayments. In fact, as a tim.customer, you make no payments at all; you simply receive the balance of your funding – when your debtor (your client) pays.
If I use tim., can my business still borrow money from other sources?
Absolutely. Because rather than lend money, tim. instead provides an online funding platform for the purchase of assets (unpaid invoices) from you. Quite often a business will use tim. in conjunction with a business overdraft or other debt facility.
