Invoice Discounting

What is Invoice Discounting?

Invoice discounting releases funding against the value of invoices to bridge the cash flow gap arising from trading on credit terms.

Up to 90% of the invoice’s value is advanced by the invoice discounting company within just 24 hours of its issue, enabling the business to trade in confidence and meet its day-to-day commitments. While facilities are flexible and typically provided on a confidential basis, they can additionally incorporate bad debt protection, if required.

As a commercial finance broker, we can introduce the most suitable invoice discounting facility and company on the market at the right cost.
