Accounts Receivable Factoring

Accounts receivable factoring is the sale of your accounts receivable (invoices) at a discount off the face value in return for immediate cash. The funding source is known as the factor or trade finance company. The primary benefit is to provide immediate working capital and protect you from business (credit risk) losses. The factor may assume the responsibility for the customer’s financial ability to pay and perform credit, collection and related bookkeeping functions.

How Account Receivable Factoring Works

You deliver a product or service and issue an invoice to your customer. The factor typically advances an initial payment of 70-90% of the invoice amount within 24 hours, less the factoring fee. When your customer pays the factor, the factor pays you the remaining percentage of the invoice, minus borrowing costs.
