Once you’ve raised the invoice, a copy is sent straight to us at Hitachi Invoice Factoring. We will give you up to 90% of the invoice amount within 24 hours and the remaining 10% of the invoice once we’ve received full payment from your customer.

Hitachi Capital seamlessly integrates your business payroll information with Sage Payroll, to allow for a smooth process while you get to focus on running your business.

What are Hitachi Capital Invoice Finance cost?
Hitachi Capital has a remarkably simple and transparent fee structure. You are charged an initial service fee when you receive your cash advance, and a smaller finance fee once your client settles their invoice. The service fee is an agreed percentage of your turnover, and covers the cost of running the Hitachi Capital Invoice Factoring facility. The finance fee is a percentage of the amount lent, and is automatically deducted from your account.
Typical fees for an Invoice Finance solution range from 0.5% to 4% depending on your company turnover. This process can be confidential, so that your customers are unaware of our involvement, but you will need to do your own credit control with invoice Discounting. You continue to collect payments from your customer, but the money received goes into a bank account held by your lender.
Alternatively, we can manage your collections for you as your dedicated invoice finance company.If you prefer an even simpler fee structure, Hitachi Capital’s Inspired Cashflow solution only requires you pay a one-off fee of £250 and a service fee ranging from 0.45% to 4% of your sales invoice value. No annual or contractual fees.
Example of a £2,000,000 turnover business.
Service / commission fee 250k x 0.25% = £575
Discount = Average funds in use of 250k x 2.75% = £6,875 / 12 = £572
Credit protection: 6k / 12 months = £500
Total monthly cost = £1,647
