Unsecured Business Loans for Small to Medium Sized Businesses

Alberta is known for being a strong business hub, with assertive business owners striving to not only earn a living, but also have a positive impact on the Canadian economy. Establishing a business and scaling your growth is a challenging endeavour that requires the investment of your time and money. Whether you are looking to expand your product offerings or service capabilities, an injection of cash can assist you with managing cashflow and expenses. We can assist you with acquiring business loans in Alberta that are unsecured, and don’t carry the same “years in business operation” that are typically required with traditional banking institutions.

Invoice and Purchase Order Factoring

If you run a business-to-business service and collect money based on an ageing accounts model, this particular product might be for you. Cash flow is king and keeping liquid assets in your operating bank account can be crucial to the growth of your business. Why wait 30, 60, 90, or even 120 days to get paid when you can gain access to cash immediately for the work you’ve already performed? Our invoice factoring for Alberta businesses leverages your accounts receivables at a competitive factoring rate. Similarly, if you have purchase orders pending and require cash to fulfill them, we can assist in funding up to 50%. Get access to cash fast.

Heavy Equipment Financing

Financing for heavy equipment purchases is available to help you replace your equipment assets or expand them as your business grows. We originate equipment financing whether you are buying from a dealer or negotiating with a private seller. Rather than paying a large sum out of pocket for your equipment acquisitions, you can save your working capital for day-to-day operations, expansions, as well as unexpected expenses. Financing or leasing your equipment provides a cost effective option that is predictable and allows you to keep cash flow available for other expenditures. Learn more about the types of equipment we are able to finance.

Lease Buybacks

Is your business loaded with equipment assets, but light on liquid cash? If you are looking to balance the scales or make a new investment, we may be able to help you gain access to the equity you have in your equipment. Our lease buyback program leverages equipment you already own by buying the asset and financing it back to you. You’ll be able to continue operating your business as normal, and receive an injection of cash that you can use for investment, unforeseen expenses or to save for a rainy day. Gain access to the liquidity you need with a lease buyback.

Business Line of Credit

Depending on your needs, it may be beneficial to apply for a business line of credit as opposed to a standard loan. The benefit of using a credit line is in the nature of the revolving access to funds. This type of loan is good for meeting the short term capital needs of your business operations. For example, if you need a piece of equipment fixed, or to purchase some inventory for a new product offering. It may even be used to finance a specific marketing campaign. Regardless of the use, a small business line of credit is a flexible way to have access to funds, especially for emergency purposes.

Loans for Land Purchase and Construction

For the purpose of purchasing a lot or land for future development, we can provide financing for land acquisitions. These are typically short term loans used to secure a piece of land before a construction loan is initiated to begin development. When the time comes to begin building on the property, we can also provide commercial construction loans to see the project through to completion. Our construction loans carry custom terms, tailored to your specific needs with some of the best rates available in the market. Let’s get your commercial building project off to a great start.
