									Introduction about
 sources of finance
Financial Resources
 What the business have available it could be cash,
    securities, creditors , loan facilities and possessed.
   There are number of ways in which a business can
    raise the finance necessary to purchase assets and fund
    working capital. The method chosen depends upon:
   The amount of money required by the business
   The risk that the business represents to potential
    lenders
   The time period over which the loan is required
Internal sources of finance
 Funds generated from an organisations own resources
  e.g. retained profit, sales of perhaps 4%.
 Existing capital can be made to stretch further. The
  business may be able to negotiate to pay its bills later
  or work at getting cash in earlier from customers.
 Nothing soothes a difficult cash situation better than
  profit. It is also the best and most common way to
  finance investment into firm’s future. Research shows
  that over 60% of business investment comes from
  reinvested profit.
External sources of finance
 If the business is unable to generate sufficient funds
  from internal sources then it may need to look to
  external sources. There are two sources of external
  capital: loan capital and share capital.
 Loan capital: the most usual way is through barrowing
  from a bank this may be in the form of a bank loan or
  an overdraft. A loan is usually a set of period of time. It
  may be short term( one or two years), medium term
  (three to five years)or long term( more then five years)
  the loan could be paid back in instalments over time or
  at the end of the load period.
 Leasing : is when the business can make use of the
  resources to use them all the time:
Trade credit: suppliers agree to accept cash payment at a
  given dat in the future failure to pay on time can create
  problems for future orders. (short term under 1 year)
Own savings: most small business are set up with the owners
  savings they are interset free but will be lost if the fails
  banks will not provide aloan or overdraft unlesss the
  owners are sharing the financial risk.
Sole trader
 Sole Traders are individual people that runs their own
 business. As they are individual business sole Traders
 can keep all the profits they make, they are also
 responsible for anything that happens in the business.
 The lost and profit is both left to them. Sole Traders
 have unlimited liability, so if the business would go
 bankrupt then the owner goes bankrupt as well.
