What our customers are saying

  • Our business was going through a tough patch and our existing factoring company weren’t going to see us through it. We engaged Key Factors just in time to clear all our ATO debts and sell off some of our non-performing subsidiaries. The decision to move across to Key Factors was vital to ensure the on-going concern of our company.  We also find the flexibility of no long-term contracts & the ability to use our facility on a selective basis quite appealing.

    - Company Secretary, Workforce Management Solutions, Publicly listed company, NSW
  • We had been with Key Factors for 3 years & 8 months when a broker convinced us to switch to another company. We didn’t read the fine print and were hit with annual fees, and constant audits which wasted a lot of our staff’s time. When we wanted to leave go back to Key Factors, we had to serve 12 months and another 3 months notice period, or were going to be hit with exit penalties. We had none of this at Key Factors, just simple factoring.

    - Director, Metal Fabrication & Manufacturing, WA
  • We used Key Factors when our bankers didn’t want to know us in October 2011, as we operate in an industry that was going to be affected by the introduction of the carbon tax.

    Traditional lenders were unable to deal with the uncertainty and risks.

    Key Factors understood the risk and assisted us with our cash flow for 5 months, which was great.

    We are still keeping the facility in place just in case knowing that it’s costing us nothing to do so.
