The benefits for your business

There are many reasons businesses are increasingly turning to Invoice Finance.

  • Boost your cash flow without the need for debt - Because Invoice Finance is not a loan, you’re not taking on any debt. This keeps your cash flow healthy.
  • More time and resource to focus on your business - If you choose Invoice Factoring with us, you get a dedicated credit control service, allowing you to focus your time and energy on your business.
  • Minimise bad debt risks - To safeguard your business, we can offer Credit Protection which mitigates your bad debt risk. This provides reassurance, knowing you’ll receive payment and safeguard your cash flow even if your customers are unable to make payment or become insolvent.

  • Take advantage of new opportunities - With an improvement in cash flow you’ll be in a better position to take on new business opportunities, such as accepting new orders or expanding and investing in your business.
  • Gain discounts from suppliers - You can take advantage of volume discounting deals with your own suppliers as you will be able to buy larger units or to take advantage of supplier discounts for early payment.
  • Get to know your customers better - We can give you useful information about the credit standing of your customers, which can help you to negotiate better terms with your suppliers. It also means you can take on better quality customers and improve your debt position between more customers instead of concentrated in just a few.
