FreshBooks, a leader in cloud-based accounting software for small businesses, partners with YouLend to launch a flexible financing solution for more than 100,000 customers across the US.
As part of its mission to empower small businesses, FreshBooks has built a comprehensive financing platform that enables its customers to access capital on demand and accelerate their business growth.
- Through the partnership, eligible businesses can now apply for funding ranging from $1,000 - $1 million.
- The funds can be used for any business purpose, such as buying inventory, hiring staff, or simply boosting cash flow.
- Instead of paying a fixed monthly repayment, business owners can repay a small percentage of their daily card transactions, giving businesses peace of mind that repayments will be hassle-free and proportionate to their income.
“Small businesses are the engine of growth in the US economy. We want to make it as easy as possible for them to access the capital they need. That’s where YouLend’s revenue-based finance can help them get started on the route to consistent, reliable growth and position FreshBooks as the preferred accounting platform for SMBs.” Sebastian Morale, International Strategic Partnerships, FreshBooks
FreshBook’s mission: To become an all-in-one accounting and financial platform for their customers
FreshBooks' accounting platform is built on prioritising customers and delivering service with transparency and flexibility. With their tools, owners can accurately track their cash position, forecast future revenue and manage their payments and payables.
The next step for FreshBooks was to go further and help customers actively manage cash flow through access to business capital. This would help them to close liquidity gaps, take advantage of new opportunities and expand their ambitions.
