GET INSTANT ACCESS TO CASH TIED UP
In short, invoice finance is a way of financing your business by giving you a % of your outstanding invoices as soon as the goods/service has been delivered as opposed to waiting for your customers to pay.
There are two main types of solutions that fall under invoice finance, these are Invoice Discounting and Factoring.
WHAT IS INVOICE DISCOUNTING?
Invoice discounting gives you a % of your outstanding invoices as soon as your goods or services are delivered. This is generally confidential (so none of your customers know) and all of the administration and collection of the invoices are still your responsibility. This is the lowest touch option for Invoice Finance.
WHAT IS FACTORING?
With factoring, the facility provides you with all of the above but the factoring company also carries out credit control and runs a sales ledger on your behalf. Customers generally know about the involvement of the factoring company but it can also be confidential.
