Invoice financing is a great way for you to build up a solid amount of capital which you can then put back into your business. It is obvious why this would be attractive – it means you have increased your amount of capital and can allocate more of your budget towards creating new products or marketing your service. But, where should you start with invoice financing and how does it work?
How does invoice financing work?
Put simply, you can send your sales invoices to an invoice finance provider who will pay you somewhere up to nine-tenths of the invoice without you having to wait. This means that you immediately receive the bulk of your payment. You will receive the rest when the client pays.
This is a great option not only because it means you get the money to reinvest immediately, but you no longer have to worry or put funds into chasing clients. The invoice finance provider will follow up with the client and ensure that the payment is sent to you.
There are three kinds of invoice financing you might want to consider.
This works as described above. You send your invoice to the invoice finance provider and receive a percentage of your invoice ready to be used immediately. They will then continue to follow up payments and you will later receive the rest of your payment without having to waste any of the time you need to focus on your business.
This differs in that you carry on taking control of collecting the payments and keep the credit control function within your business.
This option is better for allowing you more freedom as there is no minimum length of the contract. You can use it as little as once if you want. It is up to you to choose which invoices you want to send and receive immediate capital from which gives you more control over your cashflow.
