What Is Factoring?


Specialty Finance can be defined as financing activity that takes place outside of the Traditional Banking System such as Factoring.

Invoice Factoring turns business invoices into an immediate legal Line of cash when a business really needs Fast Cash/ More Money.

Invoice Factoring is a widely used method which alleviates the waiting period companies experience after they have invoiced their customers.

The major benefit to factoring is that as the business owner you can get instant access to funds that you’ve already earned, which enables you to put the capital that you receive to good use towards your business in ways that can make your company grow.

Factoring is a financial transaction and a type of Debtor Finance in which a business the client sells its accounts receivable it’s invoice to a third party known as the Factor at a determined discount.

A business will sometimes factor its receivable assets to meet its immediate cash needs.

Factoring is sometimes seen as the premium form of invoice discounting.

In this purchase, accounts receivable are discounted in order to allow the buyer the Factor to make a profit upon the settlement of the debt. Factoring therefore transfers the ownership of those accounts to another party the Factor that then collects the debt.

Factoring therefore relieves the first party the client of a debt for less than the total amount thus providing them with the working capital they need to continue operating their business.

The Factor, collects the debt for the full amount and profits when it is paid.                       The Factor is required to pay additional fees, a small percentage, once the debt has been settled.

The Factor may also offer a discount to the indebted party in order to make the deal work.
