Invoice Factoring

Instant accounts receivable financing

What Is Invoice Factoring?

Invoice factoring, or invoice financing, allows you to borrow money from a lender using unpaid invoices as collateral.

Factoring is a flexible business financing option that instantly lets you receive cash based on your outstanding accounts receivables. A lender will provide you with an upfront payment of up to 100% of the total value of the invoice. Any remaining balance is paid to you once the invoice clears.

Since invoice factoring is based on the credit history of the invoiced business, there are no personal credit requirements. Invoice factoring is a great way for small businesses and startups to get immediate cash for late and unpaid invoice payments.

Benefits of Invoice Factoring

Online invoice factoring has made it easier than ever for small business owners to access working capital quickly. Factoring isn’t technically a loan like a traditional bank loan — it’s an upfront cash advance on your unpaid invoices.

Serve as Collateral

Your accounts receivable are the collateral. No additional collateral is needed to secure invoice financing.

Transparency is critical to understand your discount rate. Your Clarify adviser makes understanding your factoring fee and payment terms simple and clear. We walk you through the factoring process and ensure no hidden fees.

High Approval Rate

No Personal Credit Requirement

Approval for invoice financing is based on the creditworthiness of the business you have outstanding invoices for. As such, a credit check isn’t required, and there are no personal credit score requirements. Business eligibility for invoice factoring services is typically high.

How Does Invoice Factoring Differ From a Business Loan?

Factoring isn’t a traditional small business loan — it’s alternative financing through the sale of an asset (the invoice amount or receivable). Essentially, the factor is purchasing the right to collect on an invoice or receivable when it’s paid for a fee.

Because financing companies are counting on your customers to pay, they’re more concerned with your customers’ credibility. Invoice factoring companies can collect payment directly or indirectly from your customers. Factoring could help your business get working capital upfront if your business has creditworthy customers.

Factoring providers generally offer recourse or nonrecourse factoring. With recourse factoring, it’s up to your company to settle the debt with your customer if an invoice is unpaid or late. With nonrecourse factoring, the factoring company absorbs the debt of the unpaid invoice or late payment. This will be clarified in your invoice factoring agreement.

The goal is for your business to receive operating capital while waiting for customer payments. Factoring is common in certain industries, such as trucking, staffing, and wholesale.

How Is Factoring Used To Improve Cash Flow?

Immediate funding from invoice financing can be used to grow your business. Here are the most common ways business owners use financing:

  • Buying or leasing new equipment
  • Payroll and taxes
  • Operating expenses
  • Hiring new employees
  • Opening a new location
  • Invest in advertising and marketing
  • Assisting with cash flow problems
  • Paying off credit card debt
  • Managing unanticipated business expenses
  • Pandemic-related costs

FAQ About Invoice Factoring

Accounts receivable are paid to a third-party company. The outside company works directly with customers to collect any due payments. After paying the factoring company, the business receives funds minus additional fees for the services.
The distinguishing factor is who’s responsible for collecting payments from customers. With invoice factoring, businesses outsource debt collection to a third-party source, known as a factor. With financing, the business owner is responsible for dealing directly with customers to ensure invoices are paid. This form of financing relies much more heavily on your direct customer relationships.
The main benefit of using this method is to free up cash flow. Factoring provides quick access to funds. You can optimize working capital that would otherwise be tied up while waiting for customers to make payments.
Factoring can come at a higher price tag than other financing options. Some business owners may prefer to pursue funding alternatives to save on costs.
