FAQ

What is Factoring?

Factoring is a financial transaction whereby a business sells its accounts receivable (i.e., invoices) to a third party (called a factor) at a discount. ┬áThe factor provides financing to the seller of the accounts in the form of a cash “advance,” often 70-85% of the purchase price of the accounts, with the balance of the purchase price being paid, net of the factor’s discount fee and other charges, upon collection from the account client.

Why Factor?

Financing provided by traditional institutions such as banks requires businesses to subscribe to rigid screening and will require security and collateral. Factoring is not a loan – there is no debt to repay. Invoices are purchased at a discount. Factoring can enhance financial ratios, make balance sheets more attractive and improve credit worthiness.
