What is invoice factoring?
Invoice factoring, also known as accounts receivable factoring, is a form of small business financing where a business sells its invoices to a factoring company in exchange for upfront funding. When the invoice amount is paid by the customer, the remaining balance is paid to the business owner minus a fee.
Invoice factoring allows you to receive the working capital you need to maintain operations and plan for the future, but without taking on the periodic fixed payments associated with a term loan. If slow-paying clients are stalling your ability to pay bills or meet payroll, invest in technology and equipment or hire more staffing, invoice factoring can help you bolster cash flow by liquidating your outstanding accounts receivable to meet your business needs.
Quick financing for your business
After submitting your invoices to the lender for invoice financing, you’ll receive the amount of the invoice minus a percentage as payment. Once the client pays you, you satisfy the agreement with the lender. While it may be helpful to have the lender collect unpaid invoices on your behalf, understand that you will have less control over the collections process and that your clients may become aware of your cash flow shortages.
Step 1: Invoices
Business sell invoices to a factoring company at a discounted rate. The factor company advances a lump sum up to 100% of the value of the invoice.
Step 2: Collections
The factoring company then collects all payments directly from the client. Giving the business owner freedom to focus on growth.
Step 3: Imbursement
The factor company sends the remaining balance to the business, minus any fees, which is typically an agreed-upon percentage.

Factoring provides flexibility as amounts can expand and contract with your sales volume.
