AccordAccess For Franchisees

Access to Capital Has Never Been Easier for Franchisees

The AccordAccess Franchise Advantage

AccordAccess is a flexible working capital solution for qualified small- and medium-sized businesses operating one of the major hospitality, retail, hotel, or health and fitness franchises. Our aim is to help you take advantage of growth opportunities or manage through challenging times, and more. AccordAccess is an ideal supplement to long-term financing, like bank credit, lease finance and of course your own investment.


At AccordAccess we recognize that you went through a very detailed approval process to become a franchise owner. Your franchisor's confidence and approval of you into their successful chain of operators speaks volumes about your character and your dedication to business success.

This means you can apply simply by filling out our online application form (or our paper one you can download and email or fax to us, based on your preference). No financial information, such as financial statements or bank statements, is required (up to certain credit limits).

The Ideal Solution

AccordAccess is an ideal solution to a variety of business challenges, including:

• Solving the timing difference between paying suppliers and collecting from customers
• Refinance your way out of a punitive Merchant Cash Advance financing agreement; regain control over your cash flow
• Financing an unusually large project, such as a renovation
• Managing cash-flows through seasonal cycles
• Financing small fixtures or equipment
• Finance a marketing budget ahead of a busy period
• Bridging through challenging events, like an unexpected slowdown or an unplanned one-time expense
• Improving overall working capital position

AccordAccess is perfect for situations when the advantage of investing in the business outweighs the short-term cost of borrowing.

How Fast is AccordAccess Franchise?

We aim to provide the highest levels of service in our industry. Following receipt of all of your application information, you can expect to hear back from us within 8 business hours with the result of your application.

If approved, and you advise you wish to proceed, we'll send you your loan documentation right away. The entire process moves quickly, and in many cases we are able to fund the next business day - direct into your bank account.

Do You Qualify?

AccordAccess Professional is designed for stable or growing professional practices with the ability to manage short-term unsecured debt.

• Have you been practicing for three or more years?
• Is your practice stable and/or growing?
• Do you have regular deposits into your practice bank account?
• Do you have an average or better credit profile?

If you meet these initial criteria, we welcome your application. We aim to answer all applications within eight (business) hours of receiving your application.

Early Repayment and Re-Advance Provisions

If your practice cash flows allow you to repay your loan early - no problem! You can repay at any time, subject to a three month interest penalty.

If you can continue to use your credit available under AccordAccess to grow your business, you can apply to re-advance up to your previous credit limit (or apply to increase your limit) once 50% of your original loan term is completed (your new AccordAccess loan will pay out your old one, with the balance re-advanced as a new loan).

Deal With Real People

We believe there's more to lending than impressing a computer algorithm, so we take the time to review each application with a personal touch. Our process gives us the flexibility to consider situations that numbers alone cannot fully explain.

Pricing Structure

We aim to be the most transparent business lender in Canada - there are no fees other than the lender fee and interest rate clearly outlined in the loan agreement. And unlike your bank and other lenders, we won't ask for your home, car, equipment or your credit card receipts as collateral - your good character is enough. Our pricing takes this, and the very short term, into account.

Our aim is to offer rates comparable to a corporate credit card. Speak to your representative about the details.
