FAQs

What is Factoring?

Factoring is a form of Invoice Finance that can ease your cash flow worries by bridging the gap between raising an invoice and getting paid. Your company will get an immediate cash advance based on your outstanding receivables, and an ongoing supply of working capital as you generate more invoices.

What constitutes a factorable business?

We consider a factorable business to be any company that provides goods or services to credit-worthy commercial customers.

What is a customer?

This is your customer. If you are a trucking company, your customer is the party who hired you to transport their goods. If you are a publication, your customer is the party who has paid for advertising space. If you are an employment agency, your customer is the party who is looking for new employees and has hired you to find them.

How does factoring work?

Factoring companies buy invoices from their client. A factoring company will then pay the client up to 90% of the face value of the invoice(s). The factoring company collects the total invoice amount due from the client’s customer (the debtor), and passes on the remainder of the funds, less a fee back to the client.

How do I get started and how long does it take to get funded?

Do I have to factor all my invoices?

No. You are free to factor as many invoices as you desire for any period of time within the framework of our service agreement.

Is there a minimum dollar amount required to factor?

No. You can factor as little or as much as necessary, given, that your customers qualify and their invoices meet  underwriting guidelines.

May I include past due invoices to be factored?

No. Only current business invoices will be considered.

When my customers are paying for factored invoices, where do they send payments?

All payments for factored invoices are sent to the factoring company, directly.

Do factoring companies work with out of state businesses?

Yes. Location is not an obstacle. We work with businesses in all 50 states.

Do we need collateral?

No.  Factoring is based on the invoice’s face value and the customer’s ability to pay.

How are fees determined?

Generally, fees are based on a projected volume of business the factoring company will receive. This can differ from one factoring company to another.

What if one of my customers does not pay an invoice? What if a factored invoice goes unpaid for more than 90 days?

Invoices that are unpaid are charged back to you. Once an invoice has been charged back, it is no longer the factoring company’s responsibility. It has now become your responsibility to collect the monies.

How is accounts receivable funding different than a bank loan?

During the application and approval process, we focus on the creditworthiness of your customers, while banks focus on your company’s financial history and cash flow. Accounts receivable funding is not a loan; therefore no debt is entered on your company’s balance sheet. We can make a quick funding decision, while banks may take weeks-even months-to approve a loan.

How are the rates determined?

We take into consideration many variables, some of which include your sales volume, your customers’ credit strength, trends in customer payment cycles, invoice amounts, and the current climate of your industry.

What information will you need to begin the factoring process?

Our one-page application, your company’s most recent accounts receivable and accounts payable aging reports, Articles of Incorporation or dba filing, and a sample invoice.

Will my customers know that I have factored their invoices?

Although factoring has become quite common and many customers have probably sent payment to factors before, we are virtually transparent. We understand that customers are the most valuable key to business. We intend for you to maintain your customer relationships, so the way we communicate with them is respectfully designed to protect your good will.
Here is how this process works:

  • First, you send your invoice directly to your customer, just as you do now.
  • You also send a copy of that invoice to us.
  • Then, a letter introducing us to your customers is sent on your letterhead.
  • As your new Accounts Receivable Management Company, we confirm the invoice with your customer on your behalf.
  • Your customer will be asked to send your check to a remittance address, which is our bank lockbox.

How can I be certain that your company will treat my customers well?

The last thing we want is for you to lose a customer. We are not a collection agency, so we will never harass your customers. Maintaining your customer relationships is of utmost importance to us. We only succeed if you succeed.

I’m a new business with little or no credit history. Can I still qualify?

Since it is your customer who pays us, we concentrate more on their creditworthiness. We have helped many companies in their early stages grow into profitable entities.

Can I qualify if I have tax issues?

In most cases, yes, depending upon the lien amount in relation to your monthly volume and the details of the workout agreement you have with the government agency.
