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.
