Factoring can be an excellent option for both newer growing businesses and longer established ones looking for cash to grow the business or just meet day to day needs and unlike a working capital overdraft, your factoring facility grows with you.

How does invoice factoring work?

You raise an invoice and send it to your customer.

You send a copy of the invoice to the factoring company for them to check.

Providing they are happy with this up to 90% of the invoice value is then made available to you straight away.

The factoring company chases up your customer and gets payment from them, rather than you having to do this.

Once the customer has paid and this is cleared, the balance less factoring charges is sent to you.

In the meantime you can concentrate on growing your business.
