InvoiceFair has announced the launch of Line of Credit – a whole new type of ‘On Demand’ funding for businesses in Ireland. Line of Credit is an automated, pre-approved working capital solution, based on advancing up to 20% of your annual turnover, with a limit of €250,000.
According to CEO Helen Cahill, Line of Credit is a well-timed innovation.
“Line of Credit is new to Ireland but has been available in other markets like the USA for some time. We feel that Line of Credit answers a very specific short term funding requirement for businesses in Ireland – an instantly accessible, pre-approved funding line for those unexpected cashflow demands that can arise without much notice. Virtually every funding option open to businesses takes so long to arrange that it causes businesses to lose out on major opportunities to grow quicker.”
Cahill explains further:
“Our mission is to give companies control of their own growth through access to innovative funding solutions at speed. Knowing they can draw down up to €250,000 instantly gives companies the confidence to invest in themselves, fund new business orders or capitalise on business opportunities”.
Being able to automate the entire application and onboarding process is what allows us to provide this unique solution. It means that we can make faster credit decisions and speed up how quickly businesses can get funded. Rather than the weeks or months it takes to secure traditional funding, Line of Credit funding can be in a customers bank account inside a single working week.
Once funding has been approved and paid to your nominated bank account, you have the flexibility to repay and redraw during the facility term, thereby putting you in control of your cashflow and the cost of funds. Uniquely, your bank account does not need to be in credit in order to draw down funds.
Each facility is provided for a 12-month period, at which stage the balance outstanding is repaid over a further 3-month period, unless the facility is renewed for a further 12-month period.
Pricing is transparent and consists of a monthly facility fee and interest payable on the balance outstanding which is collected at the end of the month via direct debit from your nominated bank account.
Our limits are also flexible, so if your business continues to grow during the period of the facility you can apply for an increased limit. It’s the ultimate in fast, flexible funding that’s always there when you need it – funding at your fingertips.

Line of Credit is a highly innovative funding solution, that is based on a degree of mutual trust. You trust us with the financial & banking information you share with us. We trust you to manage debtor collections and cashflow yourself.
Unlike other funders, we don’t ask for Personal Guarantees as we base our funding decisions on the quality of the information you supply to us. We don’t interfere with your collection process or ask you to alert your customers about a change in bank account details, so it is a very discreet solution.
In return, all we ask for you to sign a short form debenture via DocuSign, giving us security over your Debtor Book and the Bank Accounts into which debtor receipts are collected.
This has absolutely no material impact on your business but gives us the comfort we need to provide you with access to an innovative ‘always-on’ source of funding to grow your business.
