Working Capital for Christmas

Working Capital for Christmas

If you run a retail store, seasonal sales spikes can represent a huge chunk of annual revenue and it’s likely the Christmas season will represent the biggest spike of them all.

To make the most of the festive season, you’ll need to ensure you can deliver a high volume of product to meet the wall of consumer demand.  You’ll also need to ensure people know where to find your product. It’s likely preparations for the festive season would have started long before Q4. However, even the most prepared many not enough have working capital to see them through to Christmas. For example, if you’re making a large purchase ahead of the festive season, you’ll not only need money to fund the purchase, you may also need to pay for more personnel, an increase in the marketing budget and additional operating expenses.

Short Term Finance

Fortunately, there are options available so that you’re not left short in the lead up to Christmas. The obvious choice is traditional bank borrowing; for example, an ongoing business line of credit. The major problem in dealing with a traditional bank for short term finance is that they’re unreliable.

There’s no certainty throughout an application process that may take months. For business loans of less than $250,000, the approval rate is around 56%. To state the obvious, that’s 44% that were not successful. To qualify for a small business loan, your credit record must be unblemished and, typically, have some collateral to offer (e.g. the family home).
