Finding the best invoice financing companies in the UK


When you are looking for a new finance facility for your business, it’s only natural to want to work with the best company possible – both in terms of the best in the industry and the one that best fits your requirements and expectations.

When it comes to invoice finance, the choice of providers is vast and growing all the time, making it difficult for businesses to determine why they should go with one over another.

Invoice finance is a popular commercial finance choice and is therefore provided by a lot of companies, from well-known high street banks to smaller, independent funders you may be less aware of. Each one brings their own specialist expertise, while it’s important to remember there are also a variety of products within invoice finance that are suited to different businesses, such as invoice factoring and invoice discounting.

The truth is there isn’t one invoice financing company that is the best fit for every business. Each business will have their own unique challenges, requirements and expectations that will affect what they need and are looking for from their finance provider.

It is, of course, possible to research and compare different invoice financing companies yourself. However, this can be a time consuming process, and if you don’t have experience with invoice finance it may be difficult to know where to begin and what to look for in the providers.

Discover how much you could secure with invoice finance

For some companies, ease of delivery, communication and cost may be high on the list of what they are looking for from a finance provider. Others may be more interested in the lender’s knowledge of their industry, any additional services they can provide, or the flexibility they can offer so the facility grows with them.

So how can you find an invoice finance provider that meets your exact needs?
