How do Invoice Factoring Companies Work?

Businesses need to have money available to operate and succeed. Invoice factoring companies are an excellent source of consistent cash flow for small and mid-size businesses. Factoring supplies the cash businesses use to meet payroll, manage expenses, and grow.

A factoring company is an alternative to traditional bank financing. Instead of getting a loan or line of credit, businesses sell their open invoices to a factoring company for immediate cash. This simple transaction provides money which is used as needed.
