Using a factoring company to get money in quickly

Factoring is a flexible form of business finance available in the UK, which advances money to a company as it issues new invoices. Factoring money tied up in invoices can be an ideal solution for business owners that cannot afford to wait 30 to 60 days to get paid.

The importance of factoring and getting money in quickly

An efficient invoicing is advantageous to a business and to its customers; an invoice indicates money is owed or owing. The context of the term invoice is usually used to clarify its meaning, such as ‘We sent them an invoice’ (they owe us money) or ‘We received an invoice from them’ (we owe them money).

The advantage of a factoring company is that it will lend a company a certain percentage of each invoice that it issues; it will then collect the invoice when it becomes due and pay the balance back to the issuing company.

The factoring company charges a fee, usually a very small percentage of the value of each invoice and interest on the amount of money borrowed. This is approximately 1-3% of the invoice value.
