What is Invoice Funding?
Invoice funding is a general term used for asset based lending products that allow companies to finance slow-paying accounts receivable. This type of funding helps businesses improve cash flow, pay employees and suppliers, as well as allowing the business to reinvest in operations and growth earlier than they could if they had to wait until their customers paid their balances in full.
There are two ways to fund invoices. The first way is through a sale. Invoices can be sold to a lender in exchange for an immediate payment. The second way is using receivables to secure a revolving line of credit through an asset based lending such as invoice finance.
It is easier to fund invoices than applying for conventional business financing because you are technically selling an asset rather than getting a loan. To get the maximum benefit and understand what is invoice funding your clients need to be commercial and hold a good credit score.
Invoice funding is an asset based finance product that has been around for several years, it is often referred to by the name invoice factoring, a common misconception is that it been associated with only being used by struggling businesses. Over the years this view has changed and today businesses have unlocked their cashflow with invoice finance enabling them to fund their growth and take their business to the next level.
The requirement to sell your entire ledger of invoices is not required as you can select to fund a single invoice.
