We understand that your business will fluctuate from month to month, so our repayments are tied to your sales. We agree with you a percentage of revenue which you will then share with us until the advance and flat fee is repaid. If your revenues are lower than expected, your repayments will follow in terms of lower repayments.

We will automatically collect the repayments, either by connecting to your payment processor or direct debit so you don’t need to worry about remembering.

Most businesses share up to 25% of future revenues. We will agree the final percentage individually, based on your budget and business needs.

Yes, our funding can scale with your business. If your company has grown significantly, contact your account manager to discuss your options. We want to be your long term growth partner, not a one time lender.

Booste repayment is considered similarly to an installment. This means that only the fee which is a part from the installment can be treated as a cost in the company. The capital part is not considered as a cost, because it corresponds to the financing level as itself.

Same as a bank loan.
