Revolving Business Financing: 
Factoring (Invoice Financing)

Factoring (Invoice Financing) is when a supplier borrows money from a third-party financial company called a “factor” by selling its invoices (receivables from customers) at a discounted rate and paying a percentage of the invoice amount to the lender as fee for borrowing money.

Two types of Invoice Financing:

NOTIFIED

The customer or company to whom the invoice was issued is informed of the invoice sale and required to make payments to the factor doing the collection.

NON-NOTIFIED

The customer or company makes payment directly to the business who issued the invoice. In other words, the Seller is responsible for the (1) collection of payment from its customers and (2) payment of the sold invoice to the factor.

Businesses that can benefit from factoring are those who have clients with recurring invoice nature on credit terms. SMEs supplying to big supermarket chains or government agencies who often have long credit terms from 90-120 days are also suitable for factoring.

Advantages of Factoring (Invoice Financing):

Avoid high fees and inflexible terms

Businesses can receive cash quickly when they sell their invoices rather than waiting for 30 to 90 days for their customers to pay.

Boost cash flow

Since a business no longer needs to wait until their customers pay, they can have the cash to cover other necessities like employee salary, customer orders, or other investments.

Suitable for SMEs

 Some loans have strict eligibility and high collateral. With factoring, more SMEs can qualify because the invoices can used as collateral.

Keep credit low

Since the business is not taking out a loan, they don’t need to worry about big debts. And if something comes up that can only be financed by a loan, the company will not have a high debt level that may prevent it from borrowing.
