What is Construction Factoring
Invoice Factoring for a construction business is a commercial finance product which is used to release funds to a business, with outstanding invoices used as security. It is an area of business borrowing that has been under-utilised in recent years.
The number of invoice finance lenders that support the construction industry in the UK has been declining as lenders move out of the space due to fraud. In 2021 the number of lenders total three, Bibby, Ultimate and 4Syte Construction Finance.
This highly flexible form of borrowing can be used to free up funds from your debtor book, relieving the pressure placed on your cash flow. Many businesses are turning to this option to take back control of their finances, allowing them the breathing space needed to move forward.
How does Construction Invoice Factoring work
Construction invoice factoring works by advancing monies against any unpaid and outstanding invoices your business may have.
- Submit your invoice and issue it to your client with a copy to the invoice factoring company
- You will then receive 95% of the invoice value upfront, minus any agreed fees in just 24 hours.
- Once your customer has paid the final balance released
Construction factoring can be used with uncertified applications for payment to unlocking valuable cash flow to your business. This type of finance is the perfect fit for builders and construction companies looking to grow.
Factoring an application for payment
