Invoice Discounting from Gener8
Gener8 make things happen, they get cash into your business when you need it, not when your customers feel like paying you. But most of all they do it discreetly, cost-effectively and with a minimum of paperwork for you to consider. Specialise in providing confidential invoice finance facilities to smaller, growing businesses along with a transparent, fixed fee pricing structure.
For years, many of the UK’s fastest growing SME’s having been using invoice discounting, freed from the worry of unpredictable cash flow and able to concentrate all their talents and ambitions on the most important task – growing the business. We know we can do the same for you and your business.
Confidential Invoice Discounting provides you with a cash injection of up to 85% of your sales ledger whilst the credit control procedures will remain in house so your customers will not be aware of our involvement. Businesses best suited to Confidential Invoice Discounting tend to have an annual turnover of £500,000+, are profitable and can demonstrate that they have the financial processes in place to run the credit control function efficiently.
How It Works
With Invoice Discounting, you raise an invoice to your customer as per usual on your normal company stationery, send it to your customer and then present the Gener8 Finance with a copy to authorise payment. Typically, 75-85% of the invoice value can be released by the Gener8 subject to individual circumstances.
Invoice Discounting differs to Invoice Factoring in one distinct way, in that the collection of payment on your outstanding invoices remains your obligation. With Invoice Factoring, the Factoring provider will arrange for their in-house credit control team to contact your customers. With Invoice Discounting, you are still in full control of your credit control and any payment collection from your customers.
When your customer pays the outstanding invoice, the finance provider (i.e. Invoice Discounter) will then require that you pay the outstanding balance for that invoice by paying the monies into your own client account with the Invoice Discounter. Once the funds have cleared, they will send you the ‘balance owed’, less their fee. The balance owed is the margin (typically 15-25%) of the invoice that is not financed. The monies owed on the outstanding invoice will always be paid by the debtor to the Funder, at which point they will release the remaining value on the invoice.
