Frequently asked questions
It's ideal for businesses invoicing other businesses (often termed “business to business”) with customers on credit terms of 30 days or more. It is often used by businesses who have cash flow concerns due to the gap between invoicing customers and receiving payment.
It can be used if you have your own credit control team or you can outsource it to your invoice finance provider. Your facility can also be run confidentially if you don’t want your customers to know you are using invoice finance.
It gives you fast access to cash that you’re owed by your customers – usually within 24 hours of issuing an invoice. This can help you meet immediate costs like paying staff and suppliers and paying unexpected bills. It can help you build working capital and unlike a loan or overdraft, it flexes in line with your business. Additionally, you aren’t tied into to lengthy contracts or commitments – we offer new clients a 3 month trial.
Like any financial arrangement there is initial work that is needed but once set up the facility grows in line with your business. After your initial contact you will speak confidentially with one of our funding specialists. They will get to know you and your business and once we build a full understanding we can make you an indicative offer. If you are happy with this we can complete our checks and make a credit offer. Then it moves to on-boarding to get the facility live with your dedicated relationship manager as your day to day contact.
Each facility is priced differently and the cost is linked to the level of services you require. We also need to gather the information we need to give you an indicative quote. We typically give you indicative pricing following our initial consultation.
