When looking for a funding solution to speed up cash flow, many companies turn to invoice factoring, also known as accounts-receivable financing. Invoice factoring works by selling your invoices to a factoring company at a discount in exchange for same-day payment. Our Jacksonville invoice factoring programs provide you with the cash you need to meet payroll, pay bills, invest in new resources and more.
Some companies may turn to a business loan or line of credit, but it’s important to look at the differences between these funding options prior to deciding.

Jacksonville has the highest population of any city in Florida and the 12th largest in the US. The city proper is home to some 868,000 residents, and the Jacksonville metropolitan area contains around 1.5 million people. Located in northeast Florida in the First Coast region, Jacksonville is situated on the banks of the St. Johns River about 340 miles north of Miami and about 25 miles south of the Georgia state line. The Jacksonville Beaches communities sit along the Atlantic coast. Jacksonville is a major civilian and military deep-water port. Its location facilitates the Port of Jacksonville, which is the third largest seaport in Florida, as well as two US Navy bases: The Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and Blount Island Command. These two bases form the country’s third largest military presence.
The area now known as Jacksonville has actually been inhabited for thousands of years. A team from the University of North Florida discovered some of the oldest pottery remnants in the US here; these pieces dated back to 2500 BC. During the 16th century, the area was home to a coastal subgroup of the Timucua people, the Mocama. A very early map shows a village named Ossachite where downtown Jacksonville now sits; this is the earliest known name for that region.
In 1562, Jean Ribault charted the St. Johns River and called it the River of May. He claimed the land he discovered for France and erected a stone column near present-day Jacksonville. Two years later, the first European settlement was established. Spanish forces attacked this settlement in 1565 and killed almost all of the French soldiers protecting it. The Spanish then renamed the area San Mateo.
In 1763, after the French and Indian War, Spain ceded Florida to the British and the British soon constructed roads and bridges and cultivated fruits, sugarcane, and indigo. They also began exporting lumber. The northeastern region of Florida began to prosper and continued to do so even after the British ceded the territory back to Spain in 1783 after losing the American Revolutionary War. Finally, Spain ceded Florida to the US in 1821, and American settlers established the town of Jacksonville, named for Andrew Jackson.
Numerous celebrities and well-known people from various fields have called Jacksonville home. Thanks to the city’s NFL participation beginning in 1995, there are numerous modern NFL players and NCAA greats in the area, such as Tim Tebow, Jimmy Smith and Fred Taylor. Jacksonville has also produced a large number of musicians and rock bands including Ray Charles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Limp Bizkit, Shinedown, Tim McGraw, Pat Boone and more. Also, the area has been home to several notable or recognizable people, such as Elizabeth Edwards, John Edwards’s wife and healthcare rights activist. Bob Hayes, also from Jacksonville, was once considered one of the fastest athletes in the world. NASCAR driver LeeRoy Yarbrough, pro golfer David Duval, Twilight actress Ashley Greene, radio host Rick Dees and adult actress Chrissy Moran were all either born in Jacksonville or spent time living there.
Jacksonville’s public school district is the 15th largest in the US and contains 105 elementary schools, 28 middle schools, and 20 high schools. There are also 13 charter schools. Several of the city’s high schools, including Paxon School for Advanced Studies and Stanton College Preparatory School, are regularly ranked among the best public schools in the country. Students here can also attend one of 71 magnet schools and focus absolutely on individual interests such as aviation, language, math, technology, or culinary skills. There are also several institutions of higher learning in Jacksonville, including Florida State College at Jacksonville, St. Johns River State College, Jacksonville University, Edward Waters College, Flagler College and more.
Jacksonville boasts a high quality of life, a young, energetic population, and a diverse economic base. The city saw substantial growth during the late 20th century that has continued into the 21st. Jacksonville is a major transportation hub served by access to three major interstates, three seaports, four airports, and a rail system. This logistics network has attracted the automotive industry and Jacksonville was chosen as the site of Southeast Toyota as well as a General Motors distribution center.
Also playing roles in the local economy are pulp and paper mills, construction equipment and building materials, aircraft, beer, optical products, cigars and smokeless tobacco, and surgical products. Aviation is also a major industry here and a natural fit for the region. Each year, 6,000 naval personnel exit the military in Jacksonville, and the majority of them remain in northeast Florida, providing their aviation skills and technical experience to the area. Over 15,000 students enroll each year in aviation-related programs such as Florida Community College of Jacksonville’s Aviation Center of Excellence. In addition, movies and television shows are regularly filmed in Jacksonville, each one potentially adding millions of dollars to the local economy.

Is spending the day relaxing on the warm sand your idea of a perfect vacation or day-off activity? Then visit Atlantic Beach.

The beautiful fountain is a peaceful place to relax and enjoy a stunning view of downtown after a long day of sightseeing.
Interested in nature study, bird watching, or photography? Be sure to fit in a visit to Big Talbot Island State Park.

You can also see the island from the water via boat or kayak. Bring a picnic and enjoy it at The Bluffs overlooking the water, or bring your bicycle or rollerblades and explore the almost-three-mile off-road Timucuan Trail.
