Also known as ‘accounts receivable finance’ or simply “factoring”, is a type of business finance that can offer a quick boost to your cash flow.

What is invoice finance factoring?

Invoice finance factoring is when a third party (a factoring company) can buy your invoices in exchange for a lump sum of cash. Then, the factoring company owns the invoices, and they get paid when the late invoices are paid. Instead of waiting for your payment through invoices, you receive immediate funds to continue the business running. Most of the time, businesses will receive 80% of the invoice value immediately. Depending on arrangements, the collection of invoices can be managed by the factoring company. Read the definition on Wikipedia.

Invoice finance factoring benefits

Invoice finance factoring: benefit

For instance, a customer buys your product for $5,000. However, they agreed that the invoice would be paid within 30 days. You have urgent fees, wages and expenses to pay tomorrow. Invoices that you are waiting for can be bought by a factoring company at a discounted price for immediate cash. For instance, if it was discounted, the business will receive 80% of the invoice value. In this circumstance, the business would receive $4,000.
