What is Invoice Finance from Siemens

It is aimed particularly at small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) across most industries.

Recruitment Invoice Finance from Siemens
Making payroll can be one of the most significant challenges for recruitment companies.

Invoice Finance allows recruitment companies to unlock the value of their invoices to release critical cash-flow and focus on expanding their teams and achieving their sales targets.
Recruitment Businesses are increasingly exploring alternative finance solutions as traditional lending options remain restricted. Invoice discounting for a recruitment agency can be an important alternative to traditional credit lines, unlocking up to 90% of the value held in your unpaid sales ledger. Siemens Invoice Finance works hard to provide tailored solutions to help make your life easier and allow you to focus on running your business.
Siemens Financial services offering of Invoice Finance with recruitment companies is steadily increasing in this sector. We’ve helped several companies in the UK fill the cash flow gap through flexible finance options!
Another key issue is that invoices are issued to clients once candidates are placed successfully. This long payment cycle can result in a 30-, 60- or 90-day wait for payment. Clients who fail to pay on time or at all can quickly undermine a profitable business, limiting the availability of capital to meet payment deadlines for temp and perm placements, and other operating expenses as well as restricting the ability of the recruiter to grow the business and take it to the next level.
There can also be cash flow problems created by the nature of the work. Agencies that hire temporary staff members and contractors will need to pay these workers, along with their usual operational expenses. However, the end customer may not pay the recruiter for 30, 60 or even 90 days, which creates an unavoidable cash-flow shortfall for agencies of every size.
How does Invoice Factoring Work for Recruitment Agencies?
Recruitment Invoice Finance is more suited to firms that have lower invoice values and limited access to bank funding. It can fill the cash flow hole by advancing up to 90% of the value of the outstanding invoice once it has been issued to the client. Once the candidate is successfully placed and the invoice is issued to the client, the factor provides the balance of the invoice, minus fees.
As part of the factoring agreement, the factor or factoring such as Siemens manages credit control and payroll administration (processing timesheet information) on behalf of the business. In this way, freeing up resources in small recruitment firms. As a result, clients are aware that a factoring facility is in place.
Recruitment invoice discounting targeted at larger, established recruitment agencies that have their robust finance procedures in place as credit control and the collections process remain in-house. Therefore, clients remain unaware of the provider’s involvement. Both factoring and invoice discounting can give recruitment agencies the quick cash flow fix they need to pay temp and perm placements as well as cover other operating expenses without having to wait for clients to pay.
