What factoring does. . .
What will my customers think?
For some people this question is the most important issue. Generally, most finance companies will want the customers (or debtors) to remit directly to them. In today’s environment, where factoring is more widely known, this seldom causes a problem. However, a well managed factoring company will typically have a Non-Notification program available for those situations where it is warranted.
Either way, factoring clients should take the time to inform their customers that a planned change with remittance on their invoices will be taking place. Good business people know the value of open account terms and the importance of maintaining and enhancing terms. Factoring can help to ensure that everyone is paid on time. If clients, customers, and suppliers all cooperate, it becomes a win/win where everyone benefits.
How does factoring work?
What kind of industries can use factoring?
Any business engaged in creating business-to-business accounts receivable needing cash flow financing of $25,000 to $3,000,000 with minimum monthly billings of $25,000.
How can I qualify for factoring when my business does not have a strong financial record, and I have declared bankruptcy in the past?
Even if your bank would not give you a loan, we make our determination about your business based on the creditworthiness of your customers, not your credit rating.
Need I factor all my invoices?
No. It's up to you what you want to factor as long as you reach the monthly minimum of $25,000 in receivables.
My profit margin is so slim that if I were to factor, there would not be any profit left on the balance sheet?
Not so! The concept of factoring is to use your factoring funds to generate more revenues for your business. We can demonstrate that fact for you with a proposal for your review at no cost and no obligation.
Isn't factoring only for companies that are in financial trouble or relatively small?
This is a common misconception. A good example that dispels this myth is the fact that a major corporation once factored $750,000,000 to raise needed capital for growth.
How can factoring work for me?
By providing . . .
Are my invoices liened as collateral?
Yes, they are. The factoring company requires first position on invoices you have submitted to their accounts receivable financing program. In some instances they may elect to work with a bank or SBA lender who is also financing your end client. In these cases, the bank must be willing to subordinate its position on the accounts receivable.
How much does it cost?
The rate and structure are determined by the risk (industry plus creditworthiness of your customer - not your credit), the length of time the money is outstanding (cost of funds), maintenance (monitoring the collateral) and volume. It can be as cost-effective as 1% on your receivables without showing up as a debt on your balance sheet. Once we can confirm your customers' credit rating, we can offer you a personalized factoring program designed to improve your revenue, credit standing and future profits. This customized proposal is at no cost to you.
