Cashflow is a major challenge for every business. Having to wait weeks or even months for invoices to be settled by your customers can mean a cashflow crisis.
Rather than having to wait up to 120 days for an invoice to be paid, it lets you take up to 90% of each due payment immediately. The remainder will be paid to you, minus fees, once the customer settles the outstanding balance.
It's an ongoing credit facility that protects you against late payment – because it ensures you get paid fast even when customers are slow.
Supporting your growth
Invoice Finance can help power your business growth. If you have to wait to get paid, a new customer with a big order can actually be a problem – because you don’t have the cash to pay for the stock or staff you need.
With Invoice Finance, you know the money will be in your bank almost as soon as you invoice. The more work you do, the more cash you will have to call on.
How does Invoice Finance work?
Invoice Finance provides ongoing cash advances based on the value of invoices you have issued, but have yet to be paid for.
- You provide a service or product to your client and agree on payment terms, and follow up with an invoice.
- You then notify your invoice finance lender, who will advance you up to 90% of the value of the invoice as a cash advance, usually within 24 hours of the notification.
- Once your client pays, you receive the remaining value of the invoice. At this stage, the lender takes their fees.
There are two types of Invoice Finance
If your business has a turnover of over £25,000 you may be interested in Factoring. This allows the lender to approach the client and collect the debt. This saves you time spent chasing payments, and lets you have the support of an experienced credit control team to take care of every aspect of your debt collection.
Many providers offer the option of Bad Debt Protection as part of their service, which means even if your customer goes bankrupt or for other reasons fails to pay, you don’t lose out.
If you already have a credit control facility and your turnover is £100,000 or more, Invoice Discounting might be appropriate. Once you collect the debt from your client you return the advance to the lender. This can be disclosed or undisclosed - which means you can choose whether you tell your clients you are using Invoice Discounting or not.
