Providing Innovative Financing
Solutions for Growing Businesses

At The Watson Group (TWG), we are dedicated to providing alternative financing solutions for growing business owners all across the country. Our Business Development Financing Programs are designed to offer innovative Contract Financing Solutions for companies with contracts or purchase orders who can perform the work but lack sufficient working capital or trade credit with their vendors. We understand that some businesses may be unable to secure financing through traditional means due to being a startup or not meeting the bank’s standard approval criteria. That’s where TWG comes in.

Our team specializes in arranging GAP FINANCING, a short-term financing facility designed to bridge the gap between the cash businesses have and the cash they need to fulfill their contract requirements. We help our clients create collateral that, along with their contract, provides security for the loan. This is achieved by linking payment to performance on the front-end while controlling the cash flow on the back-end.

To create the collateral, the client instructs their customer to submit invoice payments directly to the lender. The invoice, along with their contract, serves as security for the loan, in most cases. Financing approval is based on the financial strength of the customer and not the client, making it easier for businesses to access the funds they need.

Our unique approach unlocks the doors to a broad range of innovative, out-of-the-box, specialized financing solutions. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide personalized and flexible financing options to meet the unique needs of each client. At TWG, we are committed to helping our clients achieve their financial goals and reach their full potential.

ERTC Funding Network

Helping Companies Get Financing
for ERTC Refund Claims

ERTC Funding Network is a company that specializes in assisting businesses in securing financing for their ERTC refund claims. The company helps businesses avoid waiting for six to twelve months for their refund checks to arrive from the IRS. Instead, businesses can opt to receive financing in the form of a direct asset purchase or an interest-only monthly loan with a balloon payment on the back end when the check arrives.

The benefit of using ERTC refund claim financing is that the business owner receives a lump sum payment upfront, rather than having to wait for quarterly payments from the IRS over time. ERTC Funding Network has a national network of hedge funds and asset-based lenders that have helped many companies secure financing for their ERTC refund claims.

ERTC Funding Network is dedicated to providing innovative financing solutions that can help growing businesses overcome their financial challenges. With their expertise and national network of lenders, they help businesses navigate the complex world of ERTC refund claims and secure financing quickly and efficiently.
