Why use invoice finance?

Invoice finance suits a wide range of funding requirements for businesses that trade on credit terms.

Having money tied up in unpaid invoices can restrict businesses of all sizes. By using invoice finance, it’s possible to access this cash to reinvest into the business, fulfil new orders, meet general running costs or secure discounts through early payment.

It is also an extremely flexible source of finance as facilities grow in line with the business. The more invoices you raise, the more funding that’s available, and certain facilities can also help to protect your business against late payment and bad debt.

How does invoice finance work?

  1. Your business raises an invoice
  2. The invoice finance company advances up to 90% of its value within 24 hours
  3. Payment is collected from your customer by yourself or the funder, depending on the facility selected
  4. Remainder of invoice value is forwarded, less the invoice finance facility fee

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.
