Why use Invoice Finance

If your customers trade on credit terms/invoice in arrears, our two Invoice Finance solutions, Factoring and Invoice Discounting, can help you:

  • Release up to 90% of the cash tied up in your unpaid invoices, often within 24 hours, with the balance received at final payment minus our charges.
  • Boost cash flow immediately without having to wait up to 90 days for invoice payment.

Both are online-based services, giving quick and convenient account access supported by an IT service desk and dedicated teams.

Invoice Finance compared to traditional funding

Invoice Finance can play a key part in your funding mix, either as an alternative or to complement traditional funding products. Invoice Finance provides:

  • Speed – decisions on funding can be made and funds available within 24 hours.
  • Flexibility – unlike a loan or overdraft, you only pay for finance that is actually being used and you won’t face long-term repayment terms.
  • Support for growth – the amount of funding available grows in line with your sales ledger to help fuel your ambition.
  • Choice – you decide whether you want to retain administrative control or let us handle credit control and invoicing.

How our Invoice Finance solutions work

We can help you reduce the impact of late customer payments, while supporting your short-term needs and long-term ambitions through Factoring and Invoice Discounting.

Both are online-based services, giving quick and convenient account access supported by an IT service desk and dedicated teams.
