Invoice Factoring: How It Works

Invoice factoring works by selling your invoices to a factoring company at a discount in exchange for immediate cash. Invoice factoring provides businesses with working capital that they need to meet their business obligations. Cash is used for payroll, equipment, daily operating expenses, and investing in new resources.

With TCI Business Capital, we can approve you for a customized program in as little as 15 minutes. You’ll be completely set up in just a few days. Once you’re set up, we’ll advance you a percentage of your invoice that same day, typically around 90 percent. While we wait for your customer to pay the invoice, you can focus on your business. Once your customer pays the invoice weeks or months later, we’ll deposit the remaining invoice amount into your bank account, minus a small fee for our services.

Although the process of invoice factoring is straightforward, here are a few other things you should know.

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 Benefits

Invoice factoring offers many benefits to businesses.

First, the immediate access to cash enables companies to meet business obligations and grow. With the increased cash flow, companies eliminate the stress and worry over payroll and daily operating expenses and can focus on growing their company.

Second, factoring is not a loan, so no additional debt is acquired.

Finally, factoring companies like TCI Business Capital provide value-added services such as invoice support, AR management, online reporting, credit checks on current and potential customers, and more. These factoring services free up time and resources so business owners can serve their customers and grow their business.

Cost of Invoice Factoring

The cost of invoice factoring is referred to as the factoring rate and is based on a number of variables. These include the monthly dollar amount you are factoring, 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.
