Confidential Invoice Discounting

What is Confidential Invoice Discounting?

Confidential invoice discounting is a form of invoice finance that typically allows your business to access 90% of the value of your invoices 24 hours after they are raised to boost your business’s cash flow, without your customers being aware of the funding mechanism of your choice.

Unlike some other invoice finance solutions, confidential invoice discounting enables you to retain control of your sales ledger management, whilst invoice discounting companies provide the working capital that would otherwise be tied up on the balance sheet.
