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. This means that if the market slows or your sales drop, your repayments will slow (or stop) too.

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

Most businesses share 5-25% 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 significantly grown, contact your account manager to discuss your options. We want to be your long term growth partner, not a one time lender.

Yes, invoices from Booste are normally classified as costs, similarly to all other invoices, e.g. for utilities or inventory. However, please remember that the financing you receive from us has to be considered as your revenue, so please book it accordingly.

Only the amount you spend in a given month can be classified as a revenue. The basis for considering this as a revenue is the agreement with Booste and the list of transactions.
