WHAT IS INVOICE FINANCE?

Invoice financing is a short term finance solution for small to medium businesses. Invoice finance solutions enable SME businesses to release funds tied up in invoices. 

As an invoice finance provider, our lending solutions are designed to help raise finance against the most significant assets in your business, such as a debtor book, inventory, plant and machinery, and freehold property.

Invoice finance is becoming a popular choice for SME businesses. Invoice finance providers give businesses the opportunity to improve cash flow by simply ‘selling’ single or multiple raised and unpaid invoices. You can receive up to 95% of the value of your invoices typically for 60 to 120 days.

WHAT CAN INVOICE FINANCE BE USED FOR?

Our Invoice Finance solutions can be used for a broad variety of growth and investment opportunities, and can be used for:

  • Working Capital Requirements
  • Projects and Growth Initiatives
  • Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)
  • Seasonal Cash Requirements
  • Turnaround and Restructuring Scenarios
  • Interim Bridging Requirements

INVOICE DISCOUNTING

Invoice Discounting is a type of invoice finance. With invoice discounting, your business enters into a confidential agreement with the finance provider, but you retain full control over the collection and management of the debtor book. You continue to be responsible for chasing and collecting payments from customers who are not aware that you are financing their invoices, maintaining in this way a good relationship with them.

Confidential invoice discounting is a popular invoice finance solution that enables businesses to improve cash flow by getting payments for 60-120 day invoices. The agreement between the business and the finance provider is confidential and customers are not aware that a finance provider is involved. You retain credit control and this helps to maintain relationships with your customers who will be invoiced as normal and pay into a trust account in your name.
