Debtors finance an alternative source of cash flow
As Small to Medium Enterprises in Australia, continue to experience challenging business environments, debtors finance to free up working capital, provides an alternative source of cash flow to meet sales demand, and operational expenses.
DIFA Chairman, Mr. Lee Clarke said “We continue to see Australian businesses take advantages of the benefits afforded through debtors finance and this trend is set to continue as SMEs becomes more familiar with this means to leverage their books to enhance cash flow”.
How debtors finance works?
- You invoice your customers for goods or services.
- You send a copy of your invoice to a factor (like Key Factors).
- The factor then gives you up to 80% of the value of the invoice.
- The remaining 20% of the invoice is credited to you as soon as the customer pays, less any accrued fees.
NSW & ACT, followed by VIC, QLD, & WA were states with the highest factoring turnover, in the June 2013 quarter.
