Small business funding marketplace Bizfi is partnering with the National Director of Registered Tax Return Preparers & Professionals (PTIN) to provide finance professionals and their clients with funding via the Bizfi platform through a customized referral process.
PTIN members now have access to lines of credit, different financing types, medium-term and long-term loans which are guaranteed by the U.S. Small Business Administration. They can also refer their clients to Bizfi.
Bizfi has strategic relationships with more than 45 funding partners, including OnDeck, Funding Circle, Kabbage and Bluevine.
Finance professionals play a key role as business advisers, Bizfi founder Stephen Sheinbaum said.
“CPAs and accountants are often the first people small businesses owners turn to when they need financial guidance. They need capital to grow their practices as well and want to be able to refer their clients to a reliable funding source when circumstances arise.”
