Since 2011, the total number of companies' bankruptcies declines. In 2016, there were 21,518 insolvencies of companies in Germany.

In 2014, they represented 99.3 percent of all companies in Germany. A proper working capital management is essential for all companies. Especially, SME are otherwise threatened to lack of liquidity or risk to become insolvent. Company funding has experienced profound changes lately. Basel I-III have extensively changed the regulatory circumstances for banks and their granting of credits. Banks must comply with changed regulatory capital and liquidity requirements as well as with new debt caps. This has a strong influence on company funding. Therefore, the rating of a firm and the risk of an investment will increase the price of the company funding. The changed importance of working capital management and the new regulatory requirements have altered companies' financing possibilities and partners. Moreover, the financial crisis has revealed their dependency on certain bankrollers. Thus, other methods of financing suchlike factoring, fine trading, leasing and crowdfunding increased their importance. This paper examines fine trading and factoring regarding their differences, advantages, disadvantages and the methods' influence on the balance sheet.
