Forms include leasing, term loans and conditional sales contracts (in which the buyer has the use of an asset, such as machinery, conditional on making regular payments on the purchase price).
A short-term loan (often at premium rates) commonly used by firms in distress or growth companies that need cash to seize a fleeting opportunity. Offered by various lenders and a few dedicated bridge funds.

Leasing offers a simple and flexible way of acquiring assets/equipment to operate and grow your business, serving as an alternative to paying cash, taking a loan, issuing debentures and other forms of financing. Leasing has many benefits, and is defined as a contractual agreement under which the owner of an asset conveys to the user the right to use the equipment in return for a number of specified payments (usually monthly) over a specified period of time (Lease Term). The owner of the equipment is known as the Lessor, and the user of the equipment is known as the Lessee.
The sale of title to accounts receivable to a factoring company, which normally takes responsibility for collecting the invoices. Fees range from 1% to 4% per month of the receivable amount, with the available credit limited only by the size of the receivables. Long associated with the clothing industry, most factoring companies now target a wide range of B2B firms.

Non-conventional hybrid debt supplied by private equity investors that combines features of debt (regular loan repayments) and equity (e.g. warrants or options). “Mezzanine” refers to the instrument’s status, ranking behind senior debt but ahead of common equity in case of default. Targets successful mid-sized operating firms in deals from $5 million to $100 million. Expected rate of return from interest plus capital gains is 15% to 20%. Mezzanine investors accept greater risk (and upside) than secured lenders, but less than straight equity investors.
Generic name for funding sources that provide capital for expansion or turnarounds through venture capital, buyout funds and mezzanine financing. The latter two, funded primarily by pension plans, are rapidly expanding beyond the corporate sector to growth-oriented smaller firms.
Term increasingly used in Canada to describe funding raised by emerging growth companies from TSX Venture Exchange listings.

The Scientific Research and Experimental Development program provides big federal tax credits for R&D by firms with less than $500,000 in taxable income. It’s often overlooked by non-tech companies that develop new products and services. Some lenders will let you borrow against anticipated SRED credits.
A term loan is a loan from a financial institution for a specific amount that has a specified repayment schedule and either a fixed or floating interest rate. A term loan is often appropriate for an established small business with reasonable financial statements.
High-risk, high-cost capital supplied by private and public investors to firms with explosive growth potential that are usually expected to go public or be acquired within five years. Placements generally range from $500,000 to $5 million, with half of all VC dollars going to “follow-on” investments in companies already in the VC’s portfolio. To make up for the 60% (or more) of deals that go sour, many VCs expect at least a five-times return over five to seven years.
Relatively new in the small-biz market, this loan product is geared toward fast-growth tech businesses. Includes subordinated debt and an equity kicker (typically, warrants to buy shares at an agreed price). Interest rates are generally about 8% above prime, but these funds could reduce your need to sell even higher-cost equity.
A working capital loan is a loan that is taken to finance a company's everyday operations. These loans are not used to buy long-term assets or investments and are, instead, used to provide the working capital that covers a company's short-term operational needs.
