What is Accounts Receivable Factoring?

Accounts Receivable factoring helps small to midsize businesses get paid sooner by providing immediate cash advances for outstanding invoices. In other words, the business sells its invoices to a third party (the factor) at a discount to ultimately get paid faster—usually within 24 hours. Factoring fills the money gap and creates a predictable and dependable source of cash for businesses.

Factoring accounts receivables allows the business owner (you) to receive up to 97% of the value immediately. Then, the factoring company gets paid by your customer.

There are two types of factoring to consider, recourse and non-recourse. Recourse factoring requires the client to ultimately take responsibility for the payment of the invoice. Non-recourse factoring allows companies to sell their invoices to the factor who assumes the credit risks for the collection of the invoices.

So How Exactly Do You Factor Your Accounts Receivables?

  • Every transaction begins with an invoice. The invoice must be accurate, unpaid, and for goods or services provided for another company.
  • Submit the invoices you wish to factor. The factor will verify the invoices and advance you cash—up to 97% of the original invoices within 24 hours. The remaining amount is held in reserve until the customers pay.
  • Once the amount is paid by your customer, the factoring company will send you the remainder of the reserve minus a small factoring fee.

Accounts receivable factoring is not a loan. Unlike a traditional bank loan, accounts receivable factoring companies do not offer a fixed line of credit. With factoring, as your sales increase so does your access to immediate working capital.

Companies who factor are on a downward spiral. This is untrue. Many companies have customers who are reliable but slow to pay.
