Invoice Finance FAQ's
My business is profitable, why would I need external funding?
Every business needs operational funds for vital tasks like paying suppliers, employees, rent, and overheads. Even profitable businesses can lack enough liquidity for these commitments. Cash, crucial for survival, is vital among profitability and positive cash flow.
Cash flow issues can emerge when a business spends on goods and services before getting paid by clients. External funding might be needed for ongoing operations.
With traditional external financing harder to access for many owner-managed businesses, invoice finance is gaining popularity. If your business covers daily expenses, external funding could be the growth solution
How much money could I release using Invoice Finance?
This all depends on how much cash you have tied up in unpaid invoices.
But to give you a guide as to the amounts of money we’ve funded businesses with in the past, it can be as little as £25,000 or as much as £5 million!
How is Invoice Finance a better choice than bank funding?
Invoice Finance options offer a notably secure and adaptable funding alternative for numerous SMEs, surpassing bank credit lines.
Given that you're solely leveraging forthcoming invoice collections—leading to a bolstered cash position and diminished accounts receivable—you're free from the obligation to repay loans. One of the prime advantages of invoice factoring over bank loans is its absence of debt creation. Assuring contract certainty (non-demand repayment) along with heightened funding tied to sales, not historical financial performance, will greatly benefit many businesses.
