What is Selective Invoice Finance?
Selective invoice financing is a highly flexible line of credit that allows businesses of all sizes to access capital when needed. This line of credit is quite different to other forms of invoice financing because it doesn’t have an agreement for the entire sales ledger. Instead, businesses get to choose the invoices they would like to have advanced. This gives the business the flexibility to adjust its cash flow position by selling single invoices or selecting a few invoices at a time, depending on its business needs.
This type of invoice financing appeals to many businesses because it gives the business the power to choose the invoices they want to finance while cutting costs in terms of the fees.
We work with businesses across various industries, including;
- Transport and Logistics companies
- Recruitment & Labour Hire
- Manufacturing and wholesale
- Information technology and business services
- Earthmoving and mining
How Does Selective Invoice Finance Work?
Selective invoice financing works rather simply. The exact details of how the process works might differ slightly depending on the factoring company you choose to work with. But generally follows the same blueprint, which involves the following steps.
Make a sale
The process must begin with the business making a sale or providing a service to its customers as it normally would and providing them with an invoice to facilitate payment. It is this unpaid invoice that the business can leverage to get funding. After sending the customer the invoice, the business also sends a copy of the invoice to the factoring company.
The factoring company will assess the business and the customer and then assess the invoices selected to be funded. Businesses with long operating histories and customers with good credit histories are more likely to be considered. However, this financing method has also been found to be lenient to new, small and medium-sized businesses.
Once the invoice is validated, the lender will fund up to 80% of the value of the invoice. With Key Factors, the funds are sent to your account in less than four hours, making this an excellent option for companies that need a quick cash injection.
Once your customer pays us the invoice in full, we send you the 20% to your account minus our fees. It’s a quick, simple and efficient process businesses can use to access financing.
What are the Costs Associated with Selective Invoice Finance?
The charges you incur to access this line of credit also depend on your chosen factoring company. Some companies might have additional and hidden fees, while others are straightforward and transparent with their financing model.
- The service fee – This is the fee charged on the turnover of the borrower. Companies with service fees will often charge the business even when they do not borrow funds. The service fee is often carried as a monthly minimum charge. When looking for a factoring company, you should consider using companies that have a “no use, no pay” policy to avoid the service charge.
- Discount rate – Also called the interest rate or on-the-money charge. It works like an interest rate and is charged only on outstanding balances.
- Additional fees – These are fees for setting up, fees for bank transfers and refactoring fees, which are chargeable if the invoice needs to be reassigned to the borrower.
Understanding the costs associated with selective invoice financing is crucial in ensuring the business gets the best deal and maximises the benefits of the service.
Selective Invoice Finance Advantages
The greatest benefit that selective invoice financing has to offer is its flexibility. Businesses use this approach to retain a high degree of control over the invoicing process. You can choose which invoices you want to finance and the ones you want to keep in-house.
Receive funds upfront
Using selective invoice financing, businesses don’t have to wait for customers to pay the invoice. They can get up to 80% of the value of the invoice upfront under the arrangement. This allows the company to quickly unlock money tied up in invoices to facilitate operations and supply instead of going to get a loan.
No lengthy contract
Selective invoice financing saves the company from getting into lengthy contracts that can get expensive over time, especially when the company has to pay monthly service fees. With selective invoice financing, the company chooses the invoices they want financing and only pays fees for those instead of monthly fees.
With selective invoice financing, the business incurs fees only on the invoices they finance. There is no long-term arrangement, so the business doesn’t have to worry about paying monthly service fees or paying for invoices it doesn’t want to finance.
It’s perfect for seasonal businesses
If your business is seasonal in nature, you can use selective invoicing to release cash when you need it most when your business is in high season. This line of credit can allow you to keep up with increased demand in high season, and it might turn out to be cheaper than conventional invoice finance.
