Other Names for This Type of Funding
Invoice factoring also goes by the following names:
- Invoice Discounting
- Invoice Advance
- Factoring Accounting
- Debtor Finance
- Debt Factoring
Whatever you call invoice factoring, the principle is straight-forward and simple.
You receive cash that is levied against your unpaid customer invoices which helps with your company turnover and stability.
Where This Type of Funding Works Well
Does your business provide 30, 60 or 90-day payment terms to pay invoices?
Most businesses provide flexible payment terms to help their clients spread the cost or delay final payment dates. You might see why this situation is great for your client but not so great for your business and this is where invoice factoring comes into play.
If your business is in the position where it is waiting for payments from customers then invoice discounting services will provide vital life-blood for your company. In essence, your company sells the outstanding invoice to a factoring company who will provide business finance on the strength of the outstanding invoice.
