Life Insurance Premium finance is the safer way of purchasing life insurance, especially for high net worth individuals. It allows a company to borrow the cost of life insurance premiums. It usually occurs when the company has a very high premium that makes it necessary to borrow the amount in part or in whole to prevent reducing the company’s liquidity.More often than not, traditional lenders don’t provide premium financing, and business owners need to look for specific premium financing providers to secure the loan.Benefits of Premium FinanceWhen a company releases a large amount of payment, its owner must first consider whether the funds are needed for the daily operation of the company or for the expansion of the business. And in order to prevent liquidating some of the company’s assets or using key funds, financing is required.More often than not, businesses depend on some type of loan to be sustainable. Premium financing is often a part of the debt cycle for company with high corporate owned life insurance costs.A business owner can finance multiple policies via a single agreement that allows the owner to make a single insurance premium payment a month. In most cases, insurance companies accept premium financing and accept payment straight from the finance provider. When that is the case, the premium finance company will bill the business owner instead of the insurer.Premium Financing of Non-Qualified Executive Bonus PlansPremium financing can be used on non-qualified executive bonus plans, which are available for vital employees of any type of corporation. The employer has the discretion to select the workers to cover and the amount of the bonus. The business owner pays for the premiums on the policy, and the employee has to pay tax that’s equal to the premium amount.Financing of 770 AccountsA 770 account is a permanent life insurance policy that has been structured to maximize its cash value. By maximizing the total death benefit and cash value, you can maximize the cash value of the life insurance policy. More often than not, the cash value is tax-free and can be accessed at anytime.770 accounts have a very competitive rate of return and can be used as collateral. But the premiums can be high. High net individuals or business owners can resort to financing in order to keep up with the premium payments without the need to liquefy assets.As you can see, financing life insurance premiums can help individuals and companies that need to pay large amounts of premium. It allows them to stay liquid while providing insurance coverage to oneself or one’s employees. This is ideal for corporate owned life insurance programs as well as private banked owned life insurance policies.
Wondering how your competition seems to have all the working capital financing they need and you don’t – the key to that answer might just be asset based lenders and the asset based lines of credit they offer to Canadian businesses such as yours.Let’s examine how this relatively new and unique method of business financing can totally alter your business financing success.The acronym for this type of financing is A B L; simply speaking its daily cash flow provide against your current, and sometimes now so current assets. What do we mean by that? Simply that this facility allows you to margin your receivables, inventory, and in most cases, should you choose, fixed assets and real estate. You are probably saying to yourself that you could arrange financing on your own re those fixed assets and real estate – but we are talking about using those assets as collateral for your daily revolving line of credit. So you aren’t borrowing, you are not bringing debt on to your balance sheet, you are just leveraging your ‘ assets ‘ (that’s the ‘A’ in ABL!) for daily cash flow and working capital.And why are we claiming that this type of working capital financing just might be your key to business success. Simply because you have probably found it has been challenging to get the full amount of business credit you need. In some cases you might have discovered its been a challenge to get business lines of credit of any manner.So if your competitors are using this type of financing today, who exactly is eligible for it, and is your firm a candidate. The answer is simply that if your firm has a combination of 250k in working capital assets you are immediately eligible for asset based lines of credit. We would add that firms with smaller asset sizes can still monetize those receivables via invoice financing or discounting, but that’s not our key focus for today’s information exchange.So now you now the offering are out there. But why should you consider it. Simply because your firm might be in one of a number of special situations – that includes issues such as your need for increased daily operating cash, you wish to merge with or finance an acquisition, you have been unable to obtain inventory financing elsewhere, you are growing to quickly for traditional Canadian chartered banking financing, etc! We are pretty sure you get the picture now!The benefits to this type of business financing must by now be pretty obvious. It’s all about access to working capital financing and cash flow that you couldn’t access before. Assets that couldn’t be financed are now financeable, and inventory financing, previously limited or unavailable now looms on your growth horizon.Who are these asset based lenders, and what is the cost of this financing? We’ll leave that one for another day, but if you want to investigate asset based lines of credit for your firm ( remember, your competitor probably already has ) then speak to a trusted, credible, and experienced Canadian business financing advisor who will assist you with identifying benefits and the best solution for your current strained needs in business finance.
Shoe Repairs And Several Other Things When I Was 7
My Dad repaired most of our shoes believe it or not, I can hardly believe it myself now. With 7 pairs of shoes always needing repairs I think he was quite clever to learn how to “Keep us in shoe Leather” to coin a phrase!
He bought several different sizes of cast iron cobbler’s “lasts”. Last, the old English “Laest” meaning footprint. Lasts were holding devices shaped like a human foot. I have no idea where he would have bought the shoe leather. Only that it was a beautiful creamy, shiny colour and the smell was lovely.
But I do remember our shoes turned upside down on and fitted into these lasts, my Dad cutting the leather around the shape of the shoe, and then hammering nails, into the leather shape. Sometimes we’d feel one or 2 of those nails poking through the insides of our shoes, but our dad always fixed it.
Hiking and Swimming Galas
Dad was a very outdoorsy type, unlike my mother, who was probably too busy indoors. She also enjoyed the peace and quiet when he took us off for the day!
Anyway, he often took us hiking in the mountains where we’d have a picnic of sandwiches and flasks of tea. And more often than not we went by steam train.
We loved poking our heads out of the window until our eyes hurt like mad from a blast of soot blowing back from the engine. But sore, bloodshot eyes never dampened our enthusiasm.
Dad was an avid swimmer and water polo player, and he used to take us to swimming galas, as they were called back then. He often took part in these galas. And again we always travelled by steam train.
Rowing Over To Ireland’s Eye
That’s what we did back then, we had to go by rowboat, the only way to get to Ireland’s eye, which is 15 minutes from mainland Howth. From there we could see Malahide, Lambay Island and Howth Head of course. These days you can take a Round Trip Cruise on a small cruise ship!
But we thoroughly enjoyed rowing and once there we couldn’t wait to climb the rocks, and have a swim. We picnicked and watched the friendly seals doing their thing and showing off.
Not to mention all kinds of birdlife including the Puffin.The Martello Tower was also interesting but a bit dangerous to attempt entering. I’m getting lost in the past as I write, and have to drag myself back to the present.
Fun Outings with The camera Club
Dad was also a very keen amateur photographer, and was a member of a camera Club. There were many Sunday photography outings and along with us came other kids of the members of the club.
And we always had great fun while the adults busied themselves taking photos of everything and anything, it seemed to us. Dad was so serious about his photography that he set up a dark room where he developed and printed his photographs.
All black and white at the time. He and his camera club entered many of their favourites in exhibitions throughout Europe. I’m quite proud to say that many cups and medals were won by Dad. They have been shared amongst all his grandchildren which I find quite special.
He liked taking portraits of us kids too, mostly when we were in a state of untidiness, usually during play. Dad always preferred the natural look of messy hair and clothes in the photos of his children.
