Seasonal Business Loans
A business is considered seasonal if it has distinctly varying levels of traffic based on time of year, climate, or proximity to a holiday or national event. Think of a lawn care business as an example. While some locales feature warm weather and green lawns year round, the majority of the nation’s lawnmowers get a reprieve between the months of October and March. This five to six month stretch of substantially lowered volume defines the lawn care business as seasonal.
Companies that engage in snow plowing operations find the opposite is true – warm weather and no precipitation means no business is to be had. Though the busy time of year may vary for these two entities, the common thread is an inability to count on consistent cash flow for the business, and seasonal business loans can become necessary.
Why Cash Flow Is Important To a Seasonal Business
The common misconception is that during a business’s off peak time very little money needs to be spent. The opposite can be true. During the down time for a snow plow company, for instance, truck repairs must be made, maintenance on the vehicles must occur, and minimal income is flowing in. Retail companies that are on an off-peak time must add inventory, staffing, and equipment to handle the impending increase in traffic. This is the fundamental reason why managing cash flow during down times in a seasonal business is vital.
