Fee Funding is a simple way to help your clients pay you monthly.
Providing easy monthly payment options for your business clients while you get paid in full, up front.
Our clients tell us they spend too much time and energy in their businesses following up slow paying clients. Business owners say some of their clients may have insufficient cash flow to pay all their invoice in one lump sum, or they have enough cash flow to pay all of the invoice but prefer to spread the cost.
smartAR understands the effects of slow payers on businesses.
It doesn’t take many clients to pay slowly for the money to add up. This money should be in your businesses bank account, not in your clients.
Fee funding helps both businesses and their clients. Clients can spread the cost of their bill over several payments and the service provider knows they will be paid.
Offer smartAR fee funding to your clients and your business will have better cash flow.
You deserve to be paid on time, every time
smartAR fee funding is a simple way to give your clients the option to pay you monthly. You agree with them which term they’d prefer – three, six, nine or 12 months. Your business is paid up front.
What is smartAR fee funding?
Fee funding is a monthly payment option for professional services firms. This means business clients can choose to pay their bill over three, six nine or 12 months.
How much does smartAR fee funding cost?
There is no cost to the business. The small credit fee is payable by the client, which is a deductible business expense.
Why do businesses choose smartAR fee funding?
We often see businesses experience a reduction in their overdue debtors, as paying monthly makes it much easier for their clients to pay. For clients it helps them avoid being an overdue debtor with their professional advisers. We find it helps professional advisers have conversations with their clients about payment up front. The small credit charge is a deductible expense to your business.
