Invoice factoring is a type of financing in which a business sells its open invoices to a factoring company at a discount in exchange for same-day payment. Invoice factoring provides consistent, reliable cash flow to many industries. Instead of waiting on customer payment, invoice factoring provides same-day cash so that companies can meet their daily operating expenses and the demands of their business.
Invoice factoring, or as it is sometimes called invoice financing, is a very simple process. A company provides work, services, or products to their customers. When it’s time to invoice the customer, the company will send the invoice to their factoring company. The factoring company will advance a percentage of the value of the invoice. The invoice is forwarded to the customer, who then pays it in their normal terms. The invoice is paid to the factoring company, and then the remaining balance of the invoice is rebated to the company.
Invoice factoring is not a loan, therefore no interest is charged. The cost of factoring, known as the factoring fee, is based on how long it takes your customer to pay the invoice.
At TCI Business Capital, factoring rates are based on a number of variables. These include, the monthly dollar volume of invoices factored, credit and payment history of your customers, and the expected payment terms.
Because no two companies are the same, TCI Business Capital customizes factoring programs to meet the specific needs of each client. These factoring programs provide clients a low-cost, long-term value in financing, along with superior customer service.
Companies that use invoice factoring benefit in a number of ways. First, factoring is based up the customer’s credit and payment history, therefore companies that are not eligible for traditional lending often easily qualify for factoring.
Second, the immediate access to cash enables companies to meet payroll, purchase materials, settle their own payable’s and grow. With cash on hand, companies eliminate the stress or worry over payroll, as well as take advantage of savings on their purchases and expenses.
Finally, factoring companies like TCI Business Capital provide value-added services such as invoice support, collection services, online reporting and more. These services free up time and resources, so company owners can serve their customers and grow their business.
