You Have Invoice Factoring Questions. We Have Answers.

What is accounts receivable factoring?

Accounts receivable factoring, also called "AR finance," is a method of small business financing involving three parties: the factoring company (or "factor"), a small business and the small business' customer(s). With a factoring facility, the factor purchases the small business' outstanding invoices, providing fast access to needed funds. The factor then helps collect on the outstanding invoices, and helps manage the company's credit risk and accounts receivable. Click here for more information.

What is the difference between invoice factoring, accounts receivable factoring and factoring?

In a word: nothing. "Invoice factoring," "accounts receivable factoring," and "factoring" are interchangeable terms. These terms are sometimes also used synonymously with "single invoice financing," and "accounts receivable financing."

Is factoring the same as a small business loan?

No. Commercial accounts receivable factoring services are not loans. With capital factoring, we purchase your invoices for up to 95% of their face value, providing you with the operating capital you need in as little as 48 hours. Then we help collect on your outstanding invoices and we help manage your credit risk and accounts receivable.

Does my personal or business credit history matter?

Unlike small business loans, AR factoring approvals are not based on your personal or business credit history. Instead, we consider the value of your outstanding invoices and the creditworthiness of your customers.
