What is Factoring?

HOW FACTORING WORKS

Companies of all sizes factor their invoices, from start-ups to large, publicly traded companies. Simply put, factoring is the sale of your company’s accounts receivable to a 3rd-party Factor in order to generate instant cash to continue operating your business. This cash is then used to cover your overhead costs: payroll, maintenance, equipment, taxes, fuel, etc. The Factor then bills your customer for the work you completed. Your customer is instructed to pay the Factor instead of you. Once your customer pays the Factor, the invoice is closed.
