What our clients say

"We were experiencing rapid growth and we needed to process ahead of time to meet demands over our seasonal shutdown period. This creates huge pressure on cash flow which traditional banks have been unwilling to address. Fifo Capital’s invoice discounting has allowed us to keep a positive cash flow and meet the demands of our customers. All our requests have been met with the minimum of fuss and the process is very simple to use. I would happily recommend Fifo Capital."

− Health Foods and Supplements Business, Nelson

"We have been using the services of Fifo Capital for the past three years and have found the service to be highly professional, while still maintaining a personalised level of contact and support. It is often difficult to arrange short-term funding in a timely and efficient manner. Fifo Capital has been more than willing to assist with all of our requests and have certainly been an asset to our business. I have no problem in recommending any business to the services provided by Fifo Capital."

"We were looking for cash flow solutions. Meeting Fifo Capital and hearing of their services, we knew this was exactly what we were looking for.
