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.

The invoice discounting provider advances up to 90% of the invoice’s value within just 24 hours of its issue, enabling your business to trade in confidence and meet its day-to-day commitments.

Different types of invoice finance offer different benefits. Invoice discounting facilities are flexible and, while typically provided on a confidential basis, they can additionally incorporate bad debt protection if required.
