What You Need to Know About Debt Factoring
September 13, 2017
Debt Factoring allows businesses access funds owed to them before it is paid by the debtor. It’s a way for businesses to access most of the money owed to them in their outstanding invoices and receive the rest when the customer pays.
How does debt factoring work?
Invoices are forwarded to the factor like Key Factors who then provides up to 80 per cent on the face value of the invoice within 24 hours to the business to access as necessary. When the invoice is paid in full to the factor, the business receives the remaining 20 per cent less any accrued fees.
Businesses that are eligible for debt factoring must have B2B sales on credit terms, and invoices for the sale of goods or services that have been fully delivered.
Advantages of debt factoring
There are quite a few advantages to using debt factoring for businesses of all sizes. It’s a flexible alternative to traditional business loans as it is adjusted based on the business’ sales. Debt factoring can hugely benefit cash flow since businesses can get instant access to a large proportion of the money owed to them instead of waiting for payments to arrive. As a result of this early payment discounts can also be removed or reduced.
Businesses that use debt factoring has better negotiating powers with suppliers by using the money they receive to take advantage of early payment discounts and bulk-buying opportunities.
One of the main advantages of debt factoring is to provide working capital for growing companies. Access to instant cash allows a growing company to buy more equipment, meet on going expenses and hire more staff to service the increase in workload. Find out more about our invoice factoring here.
