Types of Lenders using Codat

Asset financing refers to the use of a company's balance sheet assets, including short-term investments, inventory and accounts receivable, to borrow money or get a loan. The company borrowing the funds must provide the lender with a security interest in the assets.

By accessing up-to-date, accurate contributed data from small business customers, lenders are able to get a true picture of their assets before making a lending decision as well as monitoring default risk moving forward.

This type of finance uses invoices as a way for businesses to unlock cash tied up in invoices and therefore speeding up cash flow.
By accessing up-to-date, accurate contributed data from small business customers, lenders are able to get a true picture of their customers' financial health but also the behaviour of that businesses customer's and therefore the risk associated.

Codat partners with traditional lenders helping them to better serve the small business community by delivering a seamless customer experience. Small businesses can quickly and accurately share their accounting data leading to faster, fairer and more accurate lending decisions.

Lending software providers manage lending tasks including origination, underwriting, closing and documentation. Codat partners with them to help to power their capability and deliver the best service to their clients.
