Imagine having the cash for your business needs, when it’s needed. Invoice factoring with TCI Business Capital provides essential cash when you need it. Factoring is a fast, simple type of financing. Companies get immediate cash for their invoices, without waiting weeks or months for payment from their customers.
Invoice factoring provides consistent cash flow by selling your open receivables (invoices) to a third party known as an invoice factoring company. The increased cash flow is used to keep up with business demands such as bills, payroll, new resources, and growth.
TCI Business Capital makes invoice factoring easy. It’s based on your customer’s credit and payment history. With invoice factoring, which is also called invoice financing or accounts receivable factoring, a business sells its outstanding invoices for an immediate cash advance. The invoice is sent on to the customer, and once it’s paid, the remaining balance of the invoice, less a small fee, is remitted to the client.
In addition to the improved cash flow, companies enjoy many additional benefits when they choose invoice factoring as their source of financing.
The benefits of invoice factoring with TCI Business Capital include:
As with any important decision, it’s good to review choices and make comparisons before choosing a factoring company. As you begin the process, make a list of the important things you want from a relationship with an invoice factoring company. A good starting point is the two biggest components in a factoring agreement; rates and services.
The term invoice factoring rates has come to refer to both the advance rate and the factoring fees. The advance rate is the percentage of your invoice amount, the factoring company advances, when the invoice is funded or purchased. Advance rates vary based upon a number of variables such as industry, payment terms, and type of invoicing. For industries such as Oilfield Services, Staffing, or Transportation, where payment terms are n30 or n60 and invoicing is done on completed work, 90 percent advance rates are the norm. For construction, manufacturing, or other industries with longer payment terms or progress billing, lower advance rates such as 60 – 80 percent are standard.
The factoring fees are the cost of factoring. This is the fee which is deducted from your remittance, once an invoice has been paid by your customer. Factoring fees are based on a couple of points; the volume of invoices you factor each month and how long your customer takes to pay the invoice. There are other considerations that can affect the fees such as the overall concentration on the account and debtor payment histories. Overall, when shopping around and comparing factoring rates, there is often no difference in advance rates, but you may find factoring fees vary between invoice factoring companies. If this happens, be sure to look into and compare the services being offered.
Where there is not much of a difference when comparing factoring rates, there can be a big difference when comparing the services offered by factoring companies. For many businesses that use factoring, the services are what they most appreciate. Here are some key services offered by top invoice factoring companies.
When comparing invoice factoring companies, costs are an important element. But be sure to consider the level of service and how you will work with the factoring company over time.
Businesses that invoice other businesses on net terms can quickly and easily qualify for invoice factoring.
First, instead of looking at your credit and financial history, we look at your customers’ financials and payment history. Companies that don’t qualify for a bank loan or line of credit because of no credit, less-than-perfect credit, or maxed-out credit can easily qualify for factoring.
