Claim Missing Money

Paying your taxes causes a direct depletion in cash flow.  Your business is slow due to the recession leaving only enough money to cover business operating costs via an unsecured business loan.  Thus, what do you do about extra personal expenses?  How are you going to pay for the kids’ soccer uniforms or your monthly gym membership?  You need to scrape up some money.  One way to do so is to recall what owed money is floating around that you left unclaimed.  Let me explain.

Remember Old Deposits

When you move from one location to another there is usually a financial deposit exchanged for utility, cable, internet and phone set-up charges.  And, sometimes, people forget to collect these deposits before moving.  For example, what if you had these accounts from college established in your name, paid a deposit, and did not recall collecting.  You graduated, moved on and life continues.  Well, why not do research, contact the utility companies, and discover what money is sitting there waiting for you with your name on it?  Companies do not take the time to search for you.  Hence, you need to look for them.  Once you find them then the money owed will be issued providing you with extra cash for the month.

Contact Aged Bank Accounts

Check out old bank accounts to see if you left any money behind.  Find out if your frequent flyer miles program has cash rewards for you to collect.  Discover if you left any unclaimed property behind.  All of these things do add up.  Every little bit does help.

Talk to a small business lender today to provide ample information about small business loans.  Keep business operating smoothly with proper financing preventing interruptions from occurring.  Contact a loan specialist and get started immediately!
