Invoice Discounting

invoice discounting

Invoice Discounting is a great way for businesses to get a short-term financing solution. Businesses that offer their customers invoices with 30 to 60 days to make payment are eligible for this type of business financing. Invoice discounting gives the business owner a percentage of the customers invoice total immediately, rather than waiting the full 30 to 60 days to receive payment. This frees up working capital for the business owner to meet their financial needs, whatever they may be at that time. This type of business financing is also very cost effective with low rates.

What is Invoice Discounting?

Invoice Discounting allows business owners to borrow money against a customers invoice before it is paid, the invoice is used as a form of collateral. The financing company does not give the full invoice total to the business owner, only a percentage, after the customer pays the invoice the financing company receives the money borrowed with interest and the business owner receives the difference.  This is not a traditional business loan, the business owners credit rating is not a factoring in invoice discounting, only the accounts receivables invoices are. This makes it a great option for business owners with less than perfect credit. As well as keeping lines of credit open just in case the business needs to use other financing options.
