    SmartFee works with commercial law firms across Australia. Our service makes law firm cash flow management easier than ever.
    When you generate large invoices, clients may struggle to pay their bills on time. Using SmartFee allows clients to break repayments down into manageable chunks over a 3-12 month period.
    With SmartFee, your invoices are paid upfront, making it easier to manage cash flow and grow your law firm.

    SmartFee Improves Law Firm Cash Flow

    Law firms often struggle to manage cash flow, particularly when you are generating large invoices.
    Clients don’t always pay their bills on time. While it’s possible to establish payment plans, this can leave your firm holding bad debt, and it can strain your cash reserves and budget.
    SmartFee is a fee funding service that works with commercial law firms and their clients throughout Australia. We provide short term loans that allow clients to pay their bills on time, reducing the pain that comes with law firm cash flow problems.
    For firms, SmartFee allows you to offer more services to a greater number of clients. For clients, fee funding makes it possible to access professional advice when you need it, not just when you can afford it.

    Loans for Your Clients’ Legal Fees

    SmartFee Personal is a fee funding service that’s accessible to individuals and corporate clients that need the support of a commercial law firm.
    Working with commercial lawyers is often the best way to look after your interests. Professional advice can go a long way, but managing the invoice can be a challenge.
    If you are growing your business, purchasing property, buying assets or expanding the team, a commercial lawyer can help manage your risk. But, when lawyers come with expensive price tags, it can be a struggle to ensure your invoice is paid.
    With SmartFee Personal, you can get rapid approval for legal fee funding. We’ll pay your law firm up front, breaking your repayments down over a more manageable term. For people and businesses with outstanding legal invoices, SmartFee offers:

      How SmartFee Works

      SmartFee has been helping law firms manage their cash flow for over 20 years. By making it simpler to access legal services, we can provide a simple solution that allows clients and firms to stay on top of their billing.

      Accessing our service consists of four simple steps:

      1. Clients receive a tax invoice for services they’ve accessed.
      2. The client completes our simple online application.
      3. SmartFee issues approval within 24 hours.
      4. SmartFee pays the full invoice to the firm within 3 business days.

      The law firms we partner with receive access to my/SmartFee. my/SmartFee is a secure payment portal that can be customised with your firm’s branding.

      Clients can log in to the portal and pay their bill as per normal. For clients, it’s a convenient option for breaking large invoices down into more manageable chunks. For your firm, it’s the easiest way to get paid on time, every time.
