Company Profile

With over 60 years of combined experience in helping Florida small businesses and entrepreneurs achieve success, Commercial Business Funding (CBF) specializes in assisting companies that are unable to obtain financing from traditional sources in an amount the company desires. We offer Florida accounts receiveable financing, business financing and business capital financing throughout the state of Florida and the United States.

Headquartered in Central Florida, CBF works with companies throughout the United States and focuses its underwriting criteria on two main elements:

  • The recent financial condition of the prospect.

By reviewing prospects with this focus, CBF has the flexibility to finance companies that are undercapitalized, growing rapidly, in a turn-around situation, or are a start-up. CBF offers flexible terms to meet the special needs of these companies. Our products include: Asset Based Loans, Inventory Financing, Purchase Order Funding and Invoice Purchasing.

The success of CBF can be attributed to the following:

  • Flexible financing structure
  • Quick turnaround on applications
  • Ability to work with existing lenders
  • Emphasis on customer service
