What is Factoring?

Factoring is a financing process that gets you money for your receivables immediately, instead of you waiting 30–60 days for your customers to pay. The process has a variety of names: “Invoice factoring,” “AR Factoring,” “Asset-Based Lending,” and “Commercial Finance Lending.” Regardless of the name, the goal is to obtain money for your receivables as soon as your sale or service is complete. It solves a cash flow problem by enabling you to meet payroll obligations or pay other business expenses in a timely manner. To summarize the way factoring works:

  • We advance 65–85% of your invoice on the day the service or sale is complete and you invoice your customer.
  • We will mail your invoice to the customer on your behalf and collect the accounts.
  • The balance (15–35%) minus our fee (2.6–5.5%) is paid to you the day we receive payment from your customer.

Most companies factor because they have expanded so rapidly that they outgrow their working capital, line of credit, or did not have adequate start-up capital. Companies could also use factoring if they experience:

  • Large customer concentration
  • Slow turnover in receivables
  • Loss of bank line of credit or are otherwise not bankable
  • Seasonal business cycles
