An appliance repairman who unwittingly became an entrepreneur, Allan Hirsch and his wife Margaret started their family-run appliance business in a tiny showroom on Umhlanga Rocks Drive, Durban, in 1979 with just R900 that they had saved.

Today, Hirsch’s has grown into a chain of mega appliance and home furnishing stores in KZN, The Western Cape and Gauteng. Although it is a multi-billion rand company, their original concept of treating every customer as if they were the only customer still holds true.

Customer loyalty has made Hirsch’s the household name it is today. Margaret explains. “Keeping our customers happy and providing them with a unique, hands-on service has helped our business grow and we are continuously finding ways to improve our service to them.”

With 18 Hirsch's branches and concept stores around South Africa you can be sure of the care and quality

Merchant Factors

Unfortunately for South African businesses, the commercial banking sector has become increasingly risk averse and who could blame them? Bad debts and increasing liquidity problems have invariably led to a tightening of the lending reigns. Even small to medium sized enterprises (SME’s) with solid balance sheets are finding that the banks are lending less against the same assets. Those who’ve been fortunate enough to secure finance have discovered that the terms are often prohibitively punitive.

SME’s could be forgiven for thinking that the financial services sector has left them out in the cold at a time when they need assistance the most.

Factoring as an alternative means of improving cash flow is becoming more popular with SME’s. In fact each year it is estimated that over R25 billion of turnover is factored by South African businesses. Factoring is a form of specialist finance aimed at supporting those that operate in the business to business environment. Funding is secured off the strength of the debtor’s book. It’s really a means of unlocking the cash that would ordinarily be tied up for 60 to 90 days as accounts receivable. In simple terms the debtor’s book is basically sold to a financial institution such as Merchant Factors, who advance funding to the business and then administer and collect the outstanding amounts directly from the debtors as they become due.

The benefits of factoring vary depending where the entity is in its business cycle. An organisation that is experiencing high growth may find themselves constantly walking a financial tightrope between meeting customers’ needs and ordering greater volumes of stock from suppliers. Contrarily, a business that is experiencing a slow-down may need funding to keep the ship on course until things pick up again. Factoring provides a working capital solution in both cases.
