How can invoice finance help our business?

Invoice Finance (invoice factoring and invoice discounting) is designed to help with the cash flow of a business by converting unpaid invoices from trade customers into cash immediately. It’s purpose is to maximise the availability of working capital finance. Invoice finance provides a business with immediate cash advances of up to 90% of the value of approved sales invoices. The balance is made available when the customer pays the invoice in full. Many companies use invoice finance to obtain supplier discounts, fund expansion plans etc.

We are a new start company. Will we qualify for invoice finance?

Most companies, from new starts to PLC’s can use invoice finance, as long as the business is selling on credit terms to trade customers with an anticipated turnover of £50K pa. Whether you operate as a sole trader, partnership or limited company, profit or loss making, irrespective of the strength of the balance sheet, some form of invoice finance can be available. By making one phone call to a specialist factoring consultant, we’ll be able to establish if invoice finance can help you.

We are growing rapidly & our overdraft is inadequate. How can invoice finance help us?

Invoice Finance is ideal for fast growing companies. It provides greater flexibility than conventional finance. Unlike the traditional overdraft, the level of finance available grows in line with sales, making this type of finance ideal for expanding companies. This means that, as your sales increase, so too does the amount of finance available to you. If your current overdraft is restricting the growth of your business.

We have a single debtor ledger – can this be funded?

Although most funders avoid single debtor scenarios, a small number of players will finance a single debtor. Generally speaking, the debtor should have a good credit rating. Advances against single debtors are usually between 70% to 90% of invoice value.

We work in construction – can we get factoring?

Most funders avoid the construction industry because of its contractual nature. However, a number of funders will consider the construction industry on a case by case basis. As a specialist factoring broker we have the contacts and know who to speak to.

We need to pay our suppliers for confirmed orders and our bank can’t help…

Purchase Order Finance could be ideal for your business. Very simply, a funder pays suppliers on your behalf, for finished goods, against confirmed orders from quality debtors. This finance is suitable for new and young companies and does not rely on the strength of your balance-sheet.

We want to export, but are worried about late payment and bad debts…

If you are selling on credit terms to quality buyers, then invoice finance could help tackle the issue of late payments. Regarding bad debts, you could either consider taking out export credit insurance or else consider an invoice finance facility which includes bad debt protection as an option.

We only need finance occasionally for seasonal business….

While most lenders finance your total sales ledger on an ongoing basis, some funders offer more flexible solutions and will finance ad-hoc transactions, seasonal business and one-off deals.
