What is Invoice Finance?

Whether you’re looking to improve your cash flow or secure funds for expansion, invoice finance is a fantastic funding tool which supports businesses at any stage of the business lifecycle.

Invoice finance solutions release up to 90% of an invoice’s value within 24 hours of its issue. The remainder is then passed across once payment is received from the customer, less the invoice finance company’s fees.

As a specialist invoice finance broker, we can introduce the most suitable invoice finance facility for your specific requirements, taking into account your desired funding levels, service and cost.

Invoice discounting vs factoring?

The two most common invoice finance solutions are invoice discounting and factoring. But which one is best for your business?

The primary difference between them is that, with factoring, the invoice finance company will provide a sales ledger management service to remove the burden from your business. This makes factoring particularly useful for smaller businesses whose resource would be better spent on core activities.

Both products can additionally incorporate bad debt protection to safeguard your cash flow against late payment and protracted default.

Your invoice finance solutions

Invoice finance can be tailored to suit the individual needs of your business.

It is also possible to fund single invoices rather than the entire sales ledger; for instance, those of a particularly high value or those supplied on longer-than-usual credit terms.
