Factoring in the UK
In the UK the growth in the amount of businesses signing up to factoring, invoice discounting and invoice & asset finance has been phenomenal. In the current economy, many businesses have tried unsuccessfully to raise traditional business loan and overdraft finance and have turned to invoice finance as means for growth instead.
Our on going research has shown that nearly 60% of UK businesses get refused credit by their banks every year, despite the government's efforts to boost lending.
Even though a business may be trading profitably, it can still fail if cash is not available. Factoring is a method used by a business to obtain cash when the available cash balance held by the firm is insufficient to meet current obligations and accommodate its other cash needs, such as new orders or contracts. Factoring releases the cash tied up in unpaid credit invoices and allows a business to grow and compete with large or more established businesses.

New Service – Single Invoice Discounting
Single invoice discounting is a form of factoring that is simpler and often superior to standard invoice factoring. The concept of Single Invoice Discounting is relatively new and there are only a handful of factoring firms operating in this niche market. Single invoice discounting is a solution that all companies can consider. Please note that single invoice discounting is different to factoring as it is the purchase of an individual invoice only.
Single invoice factoring is suitable for businesses that trade with just one, single customer or for businesses with seasonal trading patterns. Single invoice factoring is an attractive form of invoice finance for businesses that just want finance against one customer only or for companies who just need finance against one customer for a specific project.
