Finance options for companies in Ireland

Every company would like to operate without some form of credit or finance, but the reality is that most companies need either short term forms of finance or longer term finance for capital expenditure, such as heavy machinery.
In Ireland, finance can be hard to get from traditional sources, as there are only 4 pillar banks (soon to be 3 when Ulster Bank pull out operations from Ireland). These banks form a kind of monopoly, where the cost of finance is very high, as they have little to no competition in the market. The traditional trade finance option (also known as factoring) is expensive, manual and can be a slow and challenging process to deal with.

At Accounting Pro, we partner with companies to give contractors and recruiters more holistic services than simply just accounting. One such example is our partnership with Gardenia Tech, which is a Global Data Analytics and Trade Finance company that provides finance on the basis of a company’s accounts receivables (trade invoices). This allows companies to free up cash, reduce bank borrowings and ultimately boost their profits. Gardenia Tech uses its proprietary System of Intelligence (platform, software, and machine learning algorithms) to provide working capital management and trade finance. They take data feeds from companies’ internal systems (ERPs, TMSs, CRMs), and load it onto their data analytics platform. They then make suggestions as to opportunities to save money, while at the same time making intelligent decisions on funding accounts receivables for the counter parties that they deal with.

So, what are the benefits?

It’s a cost-effective method and can be an excellent strategic resource in financial planning, as the advanced analytics provide excellent insights for companies by using machine learning to analyse their data. Gardenia can also fund Accounts Payable, paying invoices on behalf of a company, so they can benefit from early payment terms. These analytics activities free up cash within the company, and the funding activities reduces the need for traditional bank credit, by increasing the liquidity in the company. This can be beneficial to clients who need quick and reliable financing solutions. Companies get the added benefit of a whole range of data analytics to inform and bring their business to the next level.

Our client market has a real need for the services that Gardenia Tech provides. This service will help them to free up cash and reduce their reliance on credit. Accounting Pro always strives to provide our clients with the help they need to run their business effectively.
