Floorplan Finance 101

As a specialist SME finance lender, Grow Finance is all about ensuring that they are introducing new finance products to the market that meet the needs of consumers, and have the ability to add value to the market. As a result, Grow Finance has now launched a new product that broadens its stable of asset finance and working capital solutions, Floorplan Finance.

So, what is Floorplan Finance?

Floorplan finance enables the purchase of high-value assets required to be in a showroom to facilitate a sale via a revolving line of credit. The product was created to enable brokers to meet the needs of previously under-serviced small businesses dealers that require up to $3M in finance for new or used showroom assets.

This means that vendors, manufacturers, distributors and dealers can increase their annual sales by offering their clients more stock and better payment terms, through the new Floorplan finance offering.

The main sectors that have historically used floorplan finance are agricultural equipment, industrial equipment, recreational vehicles, marine craft, motorcycles, cars and light vehicles. Floorplan finance also covers replenishment stock, that complement the inventory on the floor.

Grow Finance can also organise freight forwarding, shipping and customers for goods. This new product allows clients to purchase stock today, and pay for it up to 180 days later, increasing both purchasing power and cashflow.This way you’ll never have to miss out on another supplier discount or supplier incentive that is being offered again!

Lastly, floorplan finance can help you to increase your margins. Buy your stock in bulk and offer payment terms to your customer to increase your sales and margins, so once again you can take advantage of early payment discounts from suppliers.

So how does it work?

Floorplan finance is facilitated via a revolving line of credit. It is similar to a buy now, pay later model. In lieu of the dealer paying, the lender pays the upfront payments for the goods to the manufacturer or distributor directly. When an item is sold, then you will repay Grow Finance (the lender). This structure releases your SMEs cash flow, enhances efficiency and helps to increase turnover. It also supports individual stock turn cycles, by being able to order stock based on historical or anticipated demand.
