Confidential Factoring

What is Confidential Factoring?

Confidential factoring is a flexible funding solution for businesses which offers the cash advance and credit control aspects of a factoring facility combined with the confidentiality of invoice discounting.

Like other forms of factoring, it allows businesses to plug the cash flow gap often associated with trading on credit by releasing up to 90% of an invoice’s value within 24 hours of its issue, with the funder also providing a dedicated sales ledger management service.

However, this function is conducted confidentially, often under your business’s name, allowing you to benefit from the funder’s credit control expertise whilst keeping your finance arrangements private from your customers.

How does confidential factoring work?

  1. Your business raises an invoice
  2. The factoring company advances up to 90% of the invoice value within 24 hours
  3. The factoring company performs credit control confidentially
  4. Customers pay invoices into a trust account, which is set up in your name and controlled by the funder
  5. Remainder of invoice value is forwarded to you, less the factoring company’s fee
