The faster you get paid, the more your business can do. We know lenders who can eliminate the wait to get paid - for every piece of work you do.

Many successful businesses come up against cashflow gaps - the time between issuing an invoice and getting paid by the customer. Whole Ledger Invoice discounting can help you close the gaps by ensuring you can get paid as soon as you invoice.

This has important benefits. You no longer need to find extra funds to work through the funding gap, and you can speed up your cashflow cycle to snap up stock, replace equipment or help your business fund growth. There are various types of Invoice Finance - and one of the most effective can be Whole Ledger Finance.

What is Whole Ledger Finance?

Whole Ledger Finance provides a working capital solution that lets your business get advances on all the cash you are due from customers, without having to wait for those customers to pay.

So, rather than waiting 30 or 60 days for payment, or even longer with large corporate customers who may take months to pay, you get the funding you are owed as soon as the work is done.

Whole Turnover Invoice Discounting - how it works

Whole Turnover Invoice Discounting provides a credit facility which will be based on your whole turnover, as measured by every invoice that you issue. You raise invoices as usual and send them to your customers. At the same time, you send a copy to your finance provider to authorise payment. Depending on your arrangement, they can release 75-90% of the invoice value immediately.

When your customer pays it goes to the finance provider. Once funds have cleared, they will send you the balance, less their fee. The finance company earns money both from the interest rate it charges on the loan and from a monthly fee to maintain the arrangement. The amount of interest that it charges the borrower is based on the amount of funds loaned.

The more work you do, and the more invoices you issue, the larger the reserve of credit you will have available for your business to use. You don’t have to draw down all the credit at one time, but what you do draw down will be replenished each time one of your customers pays an invoice.

This type of Invoice Finance does involve your whole turnover and all your customers, but it can also remain confidential. You simply issue your invoices as normal, manage your own customer relationships and chase payments, so your client base does not have to be aware that Whole Turnover Invoice Discounting is in place.

Why use Whole Turnover Invoice Discounting?

Whole Turnover Invoice Discounting can be a way of maximising your cashflow if you work in a fast-paced business, turning your entire sales ledger into a source of immediately available business finance. Instead of having your cashflow, and the future of your business, dependent on your customers and their willingness to pay, it means you can have the cash you need as you do the work and make a sale.

Invoice Discounting can, therefore, help reduce the financial risk to your business. Because cash advanced is secured on invoices you have already issued, it avoids the danger that you will fall behind with loan repayments, which can be an issue with traditional commercial finance.

With some providers, there may also be an option to combine Invoice Discounting with Bad Debt Protection. It can minimise the risk that failing customers could damage your business.

What are the advantages?

Invoice Discounting turns debtors into cash faster, and generates the maximum working capital from your sales ledger balance. The advantages to your business include:

  • Improved cashflow - you no longer have to wait up to 90 days or more to get paid
  • Get 90% of invoice value as soon as you bill your customers
  • Cleared funds can be in your account the day after you invoice
  • You retain control over your credit control – your customers will not know you are using the facility
  • The level of funding you can call on will grow in relation to your level of outstanding invoices – making it ideal for funding growth
  • Ideal for high-profit businesses that are growing at a rapid rate, and need the cash flow to fund additional growth
  • Injects capital into your business, without having to deal with banks or sacrifice equity

Is it right for your business?

Invoice Discounting has become a major source of Working Capital Finance since the restriction of bank financing. Whole Ledger Invoice Discounting works best for companies with relatively high profit margins, since they can readily absorb the relatively high interest charges. If you operate in the business-to-business sector and have a turnover of at least £250,000 it could be a useful option, especially if you don’t have a finance team in-house and have customers who aren’t always paying on time.

Costs may be high

Invoice Finance may have substantial fees associated with it. You would normally use it only after other forms of financing have been considered.

Suitable for high margin business

Invoice Discounting may not be suitable financing for low-margin businesses, since the interest on the debt may eliminate any prospect of earning a profit.

You must have clear title to your invoices

Invoice Discounting may be impossible if another lender already has blanket title on all company assets as collateral on a different loan.
