Restaurant financing to boost your business
There are over 2000 restaurants in the UK, and the amount that consumers are spending on eating out is growing. It’s a booming sector but to succeed, a restaurant owner needs to move with the times and trends. Exceptional management skills, an eye for creativity and an ability to balance the books are vital.
Due to the high level of competition, overheads and staff turnover, restaurant failure rates are significant and the industry is seen by most banks as a high risk sector. This makes it harder for restaurant owners to secure a loan. Most banks will want to see a solid business plan and record of accounts for three years; something many young businesses can’t provide.
That’s why Alternative Financing, like a small business cash advance, has become a lifeline for many restaurants. Especially if you’ve already been turned down by a traditional lender, or want to avoid riskier options like Business Credit Cards.
Alternative finance options for your restaurant businesses
If you need a cash injection fast, Liberis can provide your restaurant with a Business Cash Advance, which is a unique alternative to a bank loan. We understand that to be successful you need to invest in your business from the start and a cash advance can help you to finance:

A business cash advance is an Unsecured Injection Of Cash into your business based on future credit and debit card sales. It’s repaid via a pre-agreed percentage of your business’s card transactions.
Unlike bank loans with fixed monthly payments, pay back is directly linked to your card takings: it only happens when the business earns, so it mirrors your cash flow.

How it works
It’s simple and transparent. A business cash advance is an unsecured advance of cash based on future credit and debit card sales and is repaid via a pre-agreed percentage of your businesses card transactions.
Because payback is directly linked to card takings, it only happens when your business earns. And unlike many other forms of funding, company or personal assets aren’t required.
What’s more, if the cash advance takes longer to pay off, the originally agreed repayment cost remains the same. No penalties or fees are added, because there’s no such thing as late payment.
