Factoring is the popular process whereby a business sells its invoices to a factoring company at a discount

The whole benefit of factoring is that the business gets money straight way and does not have to wait the 30-90 days business take to pay in the usual business cylcle.

Factoring differs from a bank loan in the following ways.

  1. The emphasis is on the value of the invoice not the firm’s credit worthiness
  2. Factoring is not a loan – it is the purchase of a financial asset (the receivable)
  3. A bank loan involves two parties whereas factoring involves three. The business who sells the invoice, the customer who has been invoices, and the factoring company.
