Hi, Tim Bushko here, the owner and principal of Liquid Capital Funding.  As a commercial finance specialist, I’m available to make your business succeed.

I understand the importance of cash flow and the need to meet your commitments, especially as a company grows.  It’s this kind of experience that lends itself to my hands on service approach, offering my Liquid Capital clients a competitive advantage in today’s business environment.

Small businesses represent an important part of the economy and as they grow so does their need for financing.  Regardless of size every business eventually faces the reality that additional working capital is required.  Acquiring financing from banks and other traditional sources can be frustrating.  It can be a long and
difficult process that often leads to disappointment.

Factoring is a realistic alternative to conventional means of lending, the factoring process is simple.  As a business owner you sell your receivables to Liquid Capital, and receive an immediate infusion of cash, based on those invoices.  With a pre-arranged fee structure in place you decide how many invoices to sell and to what extent funding is required.

The difference between Liquid Capital Funding and most factoring companies is you will be dealing with the person that sign’s the cheque and not a Salesperson or Account Manager.
