  • FAQs

    Inventory financing is a type of short-term borrowing or line of credit that businesses use to purchase products they will sell later. Business inventory loans benefit businesses that must pay their suppliers in a shorter period than it takes them to sell their inventory to customers. Depending on the lender, the inventory might serve as collateral for the loan.

    To calculate inventory financing costs, you need to consider several factors: - Loan amount - Interest rate - Loan term - Additional fees and charges - Total interest calculation (use the formula “Loan Amount × Interest Rate × Loan Term in years” to calculate simple interest) - Total financing cost - Annualized cost This calculation is simplified and might vary with different loan structures and conditions. It's important to understand the specific terms of your financing agreement and consult with a financial advisor for precise calculations.
