Purchase Order Financing

On our planet earth, man did not invent money for thousands of years. As civilizations and nation states developed, man learned how to trade and barter for goods that they needed. Money was invented to solve the problems of bartering. There basically was a timing issue between, for instance, farmers having a crop to trade for what they wanted when they needed it. The invention and acceptance of gold and silver coins helped to overcome this timing mismatch. The farmer could sell crops for gold and trade gold, when needed, for the other things they required.

Paper money was invented for many reasons, not the least of which is to avoid the inconvenience of carrying around a large amount of gold or silver. Paper money is easier to hide. Until the early 1900’s in the United States paper money could actually be redeemed for gold. During the Great Depression, President Roosevelt in 1933 passed laws outlawing the ownership of more that $100 of gold by individuals. By the turn of the century, the U.S. government discovered easy money. No longer restricted by the need for physical gold reserves, the government printing presses churned out however much money as they needed; and the politicians invented schemes such as the sale of government bonds, government loans of various kinds, and control of the money supply through twelve regional Federal Reserve Banks to manage the nation’s economy and money supply.

Our government’s easy money in fact is causing every American a very steep price. As the world economy realizes our money has less worth, we are charged more for imports such as gas, clothes, and food; if we travel abroad, in Europe for instance, we find that it takes about one and a half U.S. dollars to purchase a single Euro, the currency of Europe. In effect, European hotels, restaurants, goods and services cost fifty percent more for Americans because of the weakness in our dollar. Ironically, U.S. musicians make more money in Europe than they can make in America because it costs less to pay them “in dollars”. In spite of this economic situation, many U.S. businesses are innovative, creative and ready to grow at a very rapid pace. Purchase Order Financing can be the easy money solution to rapid growth requirements.

Why does it work? Purchase order financing solves the timing problem to pay a manufacturer for goods before the buyer pays the seller for the product just like paper money and gold solved the barter timing mismatch problem. One real world example is the case of a company that developed popular products for dogs and cats. Most of their customers were small stores. One day they received a huge order from a big box store that would virtually double their business on a monthly basis. The business did not have the cash to fulfill the order. Purchase order financing provided the solution to their cash flow shortage to pay for the manufacture of the products and get the goods shipped to the big box customer.

How does it work? A letter of credit is issued to the manufacturer to guarantee payment. The costs of goods are paid to the manufacturer as soon as the goods are delivered, in the example above, to the big box store. An account receivable financing arrangement is created to pay for the purchase order and letter of credit side of the transaction. When the buyer pays the accounts receivable, the lender, generally a finance company or bank subsidiary, is paid pursuant to the contract and the profits are rebated to the seller.

Information of Finance, Credit, Investments

1) “…Finances reflect economical relations, formation of the funds of money sources, in the process of distribution and redistribution of national receipts according to the distribution and usage”. This definition is given relatively to the conditions of Capitalism, when cash-commodity relations gain universal character;

2) “Finances represent the formation of centralized ad decentralized money sources, economical relations relatively with the distribution and usage, which serve for fulfillment of the state functions and obligations and also provision of the conditions of the widened further production”. This definition is brought without showing the environment of its action. We share partly such explanation of finances and think expedient to make some specification.

First, finances overcome the bounds of distribution and redistribution service of the national income, though it is a basic foundation of finances. Also, formation and usage of the depreciation fund which is the part of financial domain, belongs not to the distribution and redistribution of the national income (of newly formed value during a year), but to the distribution of already developed value.

This latest first appears to be a part of value of main industrial funds, later it is moved to the cost price of a ready product (that is to the value too) and after its realization, and it is set the depression fund. Its source is taken into account before hand as a depression kind in the consistence of the ready products cost price.

Second, main goal of finances is much wider then “fulfillment of the state functions and obligations and provision of conditions for the widened further production”. Finances exist on the state level and also on the manufactures and branches’ level too, and in such conditions, when the most part of the manufactures are not state.

V. M. Rodionova has a different position about this subject: “real formation of the financial resources begins on the stage of distribution, when the value is realized and concrete economical forms of the realized value are separated from the consistence of the profit”. V. M. Rodionova makes an accent of finances, as distributing relations, when D. S. Moliakov underlines industrial foundation of finances. Though both of them give quite substantiate discussion of finances, as a system of formation, distribution and usage of the funds of money sources, that comes out of the following definition of the finances: “financial cash relations, which forms in the process of distribution and redistribution of the partial value of the national wealth and total social product, is related with the subjects of the economy and formation and usage of the state cash incomes and savings in the widened further production, in the material stimulation of the workers for satisfaction of the society social and other requests”.

Personal Money Finance

There are some home expenses that you can easily cut back on and others that you cannot. Think of this as a financial plan and your home is always a priority. If you have a high interest rate, you may be able to refinance or renegotiate the mortgage. Other than that, you could consider moving to a less expensive home or a new area, but moving itself is quite a personal expense.

In order to implement saving money tips, you need to establish some priorities; things that you will keep and things that you will give up. Things that you must keep include health, auto, home and life insurance. Not having any of those will cost you more in the long-run, but you can always shop around to save money on these items.

Utilities (electric, water and gas) are living expenses that you cannot do without, but you may be able to save. Turn the lights off when you leave a room. Set the thermostat higher in the summer and lower in the winter. Take shorter showers and choose showers over baths to use less water. Fix leaky faucets and toilets now. You would be surprised by how much a dripping faucet can raise your personal bill over a year’s time.

Save your receipts for a while and look at avoidable living expenses. If you regularly buy drinks or anything else at a convenience store, you are always paying more than you need to. Buying a single soda for a dollar is equivalent to paying $12 for a 12-pack, when a 12-pack typically costs less than $4.

Of course, if you are serious about following saving money tips, you’ll give up the sodas and the bottled water. It costs a lot less to install a water purifier and bottle your own at home. Try to figure out other ways to save grocery money.

If you don’t need it, don’t buy it. If you rent DVDs, stop. If you are buying books, get a library card. For entertainment, go to free museums and parks. Watch TV -you’re paying for that already. You will be surprised by how much you can cut your living expenses by making small changes and living frugally.

Here’s the last of the saving money tips: buying in bulk is not always the best choice. Go through your freezer and pantry. Come up with recipes to use the food up and then start over. Start a habit of cheap ideas and ways to reduce your personal bills.

There is no advantage to buying large quantities of something that you may never use. Toilet paper is the only thing that we buy in bulk. We use cloth instead of paper napkins or towels. It reduces our trash and saves us personal money, too.
