    How does Invoice Finance work?

    Put simply, Invoice Finance uses your invoices as an asset and advances the cash to you that’s due from your customer before your customer needs to pay you. That means even if your terms of payment are 30 days or 90 days you can draw down the funds from Day 1.

    This usually means getting an advanced payment of between 75-90% of your original invoice amount. This can all be done confidentially so that your customers don’t know. Once the original invoice has been paid the funder will deduct the original advanced amount, their fees and interest and the remaining balance is all yours.

    Invoice Discounting: This option allows you drawn funds up to 90% of an outstanding invoice’s value. You’ll retain the role of credit control, making sure that the customer pays their debt to you in a timely manner. You won’t start paying back the funds drawn, including interest, until you’ve received full payment or start receiving regular instalments, against the invoice in question. The balance you receive will be the remaining amount owed by the debtor minus any funds already advanced, Interest and service costs.

    Invoice Factoring: With this option, you drawn funds up to 90% of the total value of an outstanding invoice. The customer will pay the debt directly to your lender, who will then make the remaining balance available to you once they’ve received full payment. Keep in mind that this facility allows the lender to contact your clients and collect the invoice debt. This can save you time spent chasing payments and lets you have the support of an experienced credit control team and accounting department to take care of your debt collection function.
