Invoice factoring is a service where a business receives access to funds owed to them before it is paid by their customers. The business sells its accounts receivables to a third party (called a Factor) at a discount, in order to get access to immediate cash. Businesses can use invoice factoring to improve their cash flow, get on top of ATO obligations, cover the gap of slow payments, take advantage of early payments discounts and grow their business.

Invoice factoring costs vary depending on the factoring company. Usually a flat factoring rate is applied which will determine the factoring fee.
See below for an example of how a flat factoring rate is applied based on an invoice of $1,000, which is paid in 30 days after it was factored.
Invoice value: $1,000
Flat factoring rate: 3% for 30 days
Factoring fee: $30
Additional factoring costs in conjunction to the flat factoring rate may apply depending on the provider. Some examples are below:
Base rate: Usually in line with Bank Bill swap rate.
Administration fees: A percentage charged on the face value of invoices factored e.g 1%
Service fees: Monthly flat fee e.g. $1,500

Invoice factoring works for businesses by allowing them to send or upload invoices to the factor company. The business then receives access to funds owed to them before they are paid by their customers. The business sells its accounts receivables to a third party (called a Factor) at a discount, in order to get access to immediate cash. Businesses usually receive 80% of the invoice value within 24 hours. The remaining 20% is made available once the invoice is paid. It works by allowing businesses to maintain cash flow, cover the gap between slow payments, and take advantage of early payment discounts.
Collections of the invoice is sometimes managed by the factor depending on the arrangement.

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.
