The benefits of Invoice Finance:
It basically works by you selling your outstanding invoices to the invoice financier, therefore releasing immediate cash.
1) You have a £10,000 unpaid invoice.
2) You sell the invoice to the invoice financier for £9,000 at 90%.
3) Your customer settles the invoice and pays the £10,000 to the lender (Confidential discoutnign option available)
4) The lender then pays you the remaining £1,500 minus their fees.
For example you are owed £30,000 by a customer. You sell the invoice to the invoice financier for £27,000 at 90%. They collect £30,000 from your customer and pay you the remaining £3,000 when they receive the money minus their fees.
There are two types of Invoice Finance:
If you have unpaid invoices affecting your cash flow, you can easily release up to 90% of the value of your sales invoices with invoice factoring. It’s very similar to invoice factoring, except you, the business manages the credit control (as normal). This is a great option if you don’t want your customers knowing you are using this facility – It’s completely confidential.
Factoring works in a very similar way to invoice discounting, the only difference is that the administration of managing your ledger i.e the invoices, letters, chasing of payment and debt collection etc is handled by the invoice financier on behalf of your business.
