Selling accounts receivable is becoming more and more popular with businesses of all sizes. This process is formally know as Accounts receivable factoring. It allows businesses to get the money that they need without going through the traditional lending process. Factoring approvals are not based on the businesses credit history, it is determined by the assets the business has through accounts receivable. With low cost to the business selling accounts receivable is a great way for businesses to get money without using a traditional loan.

What is selling accounts receivable?

Selling accounts receivable is known as factoring, it is where a business sells their accounts receivable to a factoring company for cash. The business typically receives 70% to 85% of the accounts receivable. The process typically takes a day or so and the money is directly deposited into the businesses bank account. Factoring is not a loan, it is actually selling accounts receivable for cash to use in any way your business sees fit. Selling accounts receivable does not affect the businesses credit rating leaving it open for any other business financing needs.

Recourse or Non-recourse?

When selling accounts receivable your business has an option of using non-recourse and recourse factoring. With non-recourse factoring if the customer who owes money to your accounts receivable does not pay your business is not responsible to repay the advance made by the factoring company, they must seek out the funds. With recourse factoring if the customer does not meet their payment obligation your business is responsible for repaying the money that was advanced by the factoring company. When using recourse factoring your business is assuming the risk and with non-recourse the factoring company assumes the risk which ends up costing the business a little more money. If the business trust that the customers will repay the loan choosing recourse financing can be more cost effective but if the business does not trust the customer to make the payment it would be rise to choose non-recourse to keep this type of financing more cost effective.
