He has been very attentive, asked all the right questions, and not only fixed some problems from our previous accountant, but also set us up for future success through a thorough and professional analysis of our corporate structure in conjunction with several personal variables.

I have worked with quite a few CPA’s in my life, and Gary has proven himself to be one of the most thoughtful, insightful, and pleasant fellows I have ever worked with."—J. Louis Tabor

S Corporation CPA comments on Purchase Order Financing | Form 1120-S

S Corporation CPA Wilmington NC discusses Purchase Order Financing

Gary Bode CPA: S Corporation CPAs often help with financing options. For a free phone consult call (910) 399-2705.

S Corporation CPAs often facilitate financing for their clients. Purchase order financing is an asset based lending strategy; an alternative to the traditional loan. Generally, asset based financing relies on the value and quality of the collateral, not your S Corporation’s credit rating. Asset based financing became more common during the recession. Other examples of asset based financing include accounts receivable Factoring and Revolver lines of credit.

Purchase Order Financing

The typical scenario is an S Corporation snagging a dream order from that dream customer. Often the S Corporation views it as a growth step up to their next level of business. So there’s a strong  incentive to fulfill the order. But, there’s also a dilemma. You need additional resources to complete the order. Purchase order financing is more of a blend between asset based financing and a traditional loan. The actual blend depends on:

  • The terms of the Purchase Order.
  • The reputation or financial strength of the customer.
  • Your credit rating.
  • S Corporation assets.
  • Your track record.

Hassles with Purchase Order Financing

  • You’re sometimes forced into a secondary finance market. So fees and interest are high.
  • Terms are restrictive.
  • They’ll probably require a lockbox; the customer essentially pays your lender.
  • You sort of get only one chance here, so be sure to forecast your cash flow accurately. Growth is great, but there are pitfalls.
  • Shareholders may have to co-sign.
