About Us

A Leading Cash Flow Finance Company in Australia

Australian Invoice Finance is a leading provider of small business finance. We offer same-day approval for up to 85% of your unpaid invoices, so you can meet your payment deadlines even if your customers don’t.

Also called cash flow finance and factoring, invoice finance is all about making fast decisions, flexibility and providing support when you need it – and we don’t require property as security.
