FinanceTester: Estimate your business financing limit
Whether you are thinking about buying out a shareholder, expanding your business, buying another business, taking out some equity, the FinanceTester aims to answer the troubling questions that come to mind: Can we get enough financing? What type of financing should we go for? Who might provide this type of financing? FinanceTester was developed to answer these questions quickly.
Simply enter certain information from your most recent financial statements covering a 12-month period, and the FinanceTester instantly tells you how much funding you may secure, the types of financing facilities that make up the total financing, and the numbers of potentially interested funders by financing type. With that knowledge, you can decide what the next steps should be with respect to your business objective.
Before completing the blank form below, you may wish to view the video tutorial, play with a completed sample to see how changes impact the financing options, or review the detailed guide.
The information you enter is completely confidential and is not stored anywhere. Should you wish to order a report or perform advanced analysis, read below for further instructions or refer to the guide.

Want to fast-track your financing transaction?
Get the Financing Strategy Report and Prospective Funder List for just US$849. Together these provide financial analysis (financing spectrum analysis, forecast financial statements, loan value limits, loan coverage, loan amortizations and covenant compliance) to prepare your financing marketing materials and direct you to the funders most likely to be interested in your proposed financing opportunity.
For less than the cost of a 2-day conference, you can avoid the countless days (or weeks) and associated cost of professional time spent preparing this financial material, which will be provided to you in a customized report that can be used to prepare presentation materials for prospective financing sources.
Simply email the information you have entered above in either a spreadsheet format (preferred) or as a pdf file to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, together with your company name and address, contact person and position, and contact email and phone number. The spreadsheet method involves the following steps: (1) place your mouse pointer on the upper left of the input screen (to the left of the version number) and dragging the mouse down to the bottom right to select the entire area; (2) while holding down the Ctrl key, press ‘C’ to copy the selected area (i.e. <CTRL+C>); (3) open a new spreadsheet (Excel preferred) and paste contents into cell A1 (you should see a rough data dump that we can work with); (4) save the new spreadsheet with an appropriate filename in a location you can remember; and (5) email the spreadsheet file to us with the required company, individual and contact information listed above. Alternatively, you can: (1) print the web page as a pdf file to a location you can remember; and (2) email the pdf file to us with the required company, individual and contact information listed above.
We will review and process your request, which may require us to contact you to obtain or clarify certain information. Only after we are satisfied with the analytical results will we email you an invoice for payment. Upon receipt of payment, we will email the Financing Strategy Report and Prospective Funder List. Turnaround time is typically 12 to 48 hours (the pdf file method will be somewhat longer due to data re-entry required on our end).
