Invoice Finance and Factoring 

Invoice finance and factoring are effective and flexible ways for businesses to effectively manage their Cash Flow and Working Capital. They provide a facility that lets you draw down cash into your business, as an advance payment secured against the invoice,  by converting your invoices (debtor book) into a readily available revenue stream.

Whether you’re a start-up business, trading for many years and irrespective of size we can usually provide a workable and cost-effective invoice finance solution that will improve the cash flow in your business at rates often far better than overdraft terms.

  • Up to 90% of the Invoice Value paid to you on issue
  • On-line process and cash paid into your account same day / next day
  • Facility available to new start business with turnover from just £50,000 per annum
  • Bad debt insurance can be included if necessary to give additional peace of mind
  • Factoring can be offered to most Business types and Industry Sectors
  • Reduced finance costs over traditional overdraft facilities

Types of Invoice Finance

  • Factoring
    The Invoice Finance Company (IFC) provides finance against the whole of the business’s debtor book/ledger. Invoices raised by the business are paid directly to the IFC (this is the most commonly used type of Invoice Finance)
  • Invoice Discounting
    Invoice discounting is very similar to Factoring save that the business continues to administer their own debtor book
  • Invoice Payroll
    Invoice payroll is only available for recruitment agencies, providing essential recruitment factoring to support the day-to-day running of the business
  • Spot Factoring
    Spot factoring tends to be either used at certain times of the year or against specific invoices
  • Trade / Stock Finance
    Trade and or stock finance is often used in conjunction with invoice finance facilities as it often enables borrowing to be repaid when items/products are either sold or invoiced

What is Invoice Finance used for?

  • Businesses that are looking to grow
  • New start companies looking for financial support
  • Businesses need help to pay bills
  • Businesses looking to outsource their credit control saving time and resources
