What You Need to Know About Debt Factoring

September 13, 2017

Debt Factoring

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.

What our customers are saying

  • 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.

  • In today’s economy, many businesses are struggling to manage their cash flow and trying to avoid getting into the cycle of you’ll get paid when we get paid. As a small business owner, the best thing has to be getting the cash into our account as we issue invoices, without having to wait 30, 45, or sometimes 60 days to get paid. We have been long standing clients and are very happy with Key Factors service. Their facility is simple to use, and the staff are always helpful.

    - Director, Timber Recycling Company, SA
  • 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.
