What is Invoice Finance ?

Invoice finance, also known as accounts receivable financing, is a flexible funding solution that allows businesses to unlock the cash tied up in their unpaid customer invoices. Rather than waiting for customers to pay their invoices, businesses can sell these invoices to a finance provider, who advances a percentage of the invoice value upfront. This immediate access to cash helps improve cash flow and provides working capital to support business operations and growth.

Uses and Advantages of Invoice Finance

There are two main types of invoice finance::

Invoice Factoring With invoice factoring, the finance provider takes full control of the sales ledger and credit control processes. They advance a percentage of the invoice value (typically around 80-90%) upfront and manage the collection of payments from customers. Once the customers pay, the finance provider releases the remaining balance, minus a small fee.

Invoice Discounting Invoice discounting is a more confidential option where the business retains control of its sales ledger and credit control processes. The finance provider advances a percentage of the invoice value (usually up to 85%) upfront, and the business remains responsible for collecting payments from customers. Once the customers pay, the business repays the advanced amount plus a fee to the finance provider.

  • 1. Improved Cash Flow

    Invoice finance provides immediate access to cash, enabling businesses to bridge the gap between invoicing and receiving customer payments. This helps improve cash flow, allowing businesses to meet their financial obligations, pay suppliers on time, and seize growth opportunities.

  • 2. Working Capital Support

    By converting unpaid invoices into cash, businesses can access the working capital needed to cover day-to-day expenses, invest in growth initiatives, purchase inventory, and meet payroll obligations.

  • 3. Flexible Funding

    Invoice finance grows in line with the business's sales, providing a scalable funding solution. As the business generates more invoices, the available funding increases, allowing businesses to capitalise on growth without the need for additional collateral or traditional loans.

  • 4. Reduced Credit Risk

    Invoice finance providers often perform credit checks on customers, helping businesses assess their creditworthiness and reduce the risk of non-payment or bad debts. This can provide peace of mind and protect businesses from financial losses.

  • 5. Outsourced Credit Control

    With invoice factoring, businesses can benefit from outsourced credit control services. The finance provider takes over the responsibility of collecting payments from customers, saving businesses time and resources while ensuring professional credit management.

  • 5. Confidentiality

    Invoice discounting offers the advantage of confidentiality. Businesses can maintain direct relationships with their customers and manage their own credit control processes without disclosing their use of invoice finance.

  • Q1. How quickly can I receive funding through invoice finance ?

    The funding speed can vary depending on the finance provider and the specific circumstances. However, with invoice finance, businesses can typically receive funding within 24 to 48 hours after submitting the eligible invoices.

  • Q2. What happens if my customer doesn't pay the invoice ?

    In invoice factoring, if a customer fails to pay an invoice, the finance provider may take recourse against your business to recover the outstanding amount. In invoice discounting, the responsibility for collecting payment remains with your business, and you will need to repay the advanced amount to the finance provider.

  • Q3. Are all my customers eligible for invoice finance ?

    Not all customers may be eligible for invoice finance. Typically, finance providers assess the creditworthiness of your customers to minimise the risk of non-payment. Some finance providers may have specific criteria or restrictions regarding customer eligibility.

  • Q4. Can I choose which invoices to finance ?

    Yes, if you opt for selective invoice finance, you can choose which specific invoices to finance. This flexibility allows you to address immediate cash flow needs by funding selected invoices while maintaining control over the remaining invoices.

  • Q4. How much funding can I receive through invoice finance ?

    The amount of funding you can receive through invoice finance depends on various factors, including your business's sales volume, the creditworthiness of your customers, and the finance provider's terms. Typically, businesses can access up to 80-90% of the invoice value.
