Invoice Factoring

Invoice factoring is a form of finance where a business sells it’s invoices to a factoring company. In return for this a factoring lender will advance up to 90% of the gross invoice value to the business. This cash is a valuable source of working capital for many businesses.

Invoice factoring facilities also allow businesses to outsource their credit control function as the invoice factoring company will send out month end statements, letters chasing outstanding invoices and phone calls to debtors to obtain prompt payment. The level of service can vary from different factoring companies and a cheap factoring service will typically be a ’low touch’ service with only automated letters and statements rather than pro-active phone calls.
