Finance your Business Growth with these 2 types of Invoice Finance

Invoice Finance Your Business to Success

Change in the Industry

There are two types of invoice finance products:

  1. Factoring
  2. invoice discounting,

The biggest difference between them being who collects the customer payments.

Each allows you to release a large proportion of an invoice’s value within 24 hours of its issue.

Once your customer has made their payment, the remaining balance is paid to you, minus any fees.

Many businesses that use invoice finance also add bad
debt protection to make sure that they still receive
payment if their customers can’t settle their invoices.
This is known as non-recourse factoring.

Factoring Finance: – This an attractive option for smaller businesses, whose resource would be better spent on day-to-day activities.

The finance provider has a dedicated credit control team collect your outstanding invoices, your time is freed up to concentrate on running your business.

Invoice Discounting: –  This is similar to factoring, in that it gives you access to cash as you issue new invoices.

However, a key difference is that you’ll be responsible for collecting your payments, while your use of an invoice finance product will be kept completely confidential from
your customers.

Reap the Benefits

Maximise your Profits and Scale your Business Growth with Invoice Financing


Because invoice finance is not a loan, you’re not taking on any debt. This keeps your cashflow healthy.


If you choose factoring, you get a dedicated credit control service, allowing you to focus your time and energy on your business.


To safeguard your business, you can choose to add bad debt protection. This is known as non-recourse factoring, where we take on your bad debt risk, unlike recourse factoring, where the risk of not being paid by your customers remains with you.


With an improvement in cashflow you’ll be in a better position to realise new opportunities, take on new orders or expand and invest in your business.


You will be able to take advantage of volume discounting deals with your own suppliers as you will be in a position to buy larger units or to take advantage of supplier discounts for early payment.


We can give you useful information about the credit standing of your customers, which can help you to negotiate better terms with your suppliers.

It also means you can take on better quality customers and improve your debt position between more customers instead of concentrated in just a few.

How does invoice financing work?

  1. Send your invoice to your customers and send a copy to the funder
  2. On receipt of your invoice, the funder will advance an agreed percentage of the invoice value to you within 24 hours
  3. IF Factoring – The funder will undertake credit control on your behalf, chasing customers until invoices are paid
    IF Invoice Discounting – You chase payment of the invoice and your customer makes payment into a dedicated business account
  4. Once your customer pays in full, the remaining percentage is returned to you, minus an agreed fee
