Sources of financing

Financing sources are classified as internal and external.

Some internal sources of financing are limited by the capacity that the company has organically to execute them. Some are:

  • Increases in current liabilities such as pensions and taxes or reduction in current assets such as inventories (generated and managed by the company)

  • Retained earnings

  • Partner contributions

  • Sale of assets

The external sources of financing are:

  • Increases in current liabilities such as suppliers or advances, or reduction in current assets as customers (external to the company)

  • subsidies

  • Financing

  • Bank or extra-bank credits

  • Leasing

  • Factoring (discount of documents such as invoices or contracts)

  • Issuance of debentures or bonds

  • Mezzanine credits or similar

  • Issue or sale (when the value of the sale is capitalized) of shares

The ability of a company to obtain financing and the associated costs are linked to the clarity of its business plan, the team that manages it, the stability of its operation, the guarantees it can provide and the growth of its sector.

Either way, your debt/equity ratio is generally limited.
