What is Revenue Based Finance?
Revenue based Finance is a type of financing where the loan amount is based on a percentage of the borrower’s monthly or annual revenue.

This type of financing is often used by startups or small businesses with inconsistent cash flow. The drawback is this may come with higher interest rates compared to traditional loans.

How does revenue-based financing work?
Revenue-based financing works by having the borrower repay the loan through a percentage of their company’s monthly or annual revenue. This means that the loan payments will fluctuate with the company’s revenue.
The lender will typically set a fixed repayment rate, for example, 1-5% of monthly revenue. The borrower will pay the interest until the loan, plus any accumulated interest, is fully repaid.
The loan repayment will be deducted automatically from the borrower’s revenue. The lender receiving their payment before the borrower takes any profit.
This type of financing can be an alternative to traditional loans, especially for startups or small businesses with limited or inconsistent revenue.
However, it often comes with higher interest rates and a repayment period. This may be longer than that of a traditional loan.
