Invoice finance can be broken up into two types of products; invoice factoring and invoice discounting, shown by this infographic.
Both invoice finance solutions provide the user with a percentage of the value of their unpaid invoice (up to 90%) in advance. This means that the user does not have to wait the 30, 60 or even 90 days that has been given to the customer as a time frame to fulfil the invoice payment.
The factoring company or invoice discounting lender will also usually be able to supply the cash within 24 hours, making a flexible finance option.
Invoice finance works by having a percentage of your invoice value advanced to you by a lender. Once the customer pays the invoice, you receive the remaining invoice balance from the lender minus service and borrowing charges.
