Invoice Discounting

Invoice Discounting is a form of Invoice Finance which allows businesses to immediately release cash tied up in unpaid invoices, allowing you to put cash straight back in the business as soon as it has been earned.

A lender can advance you up to 95% of the value of your unpaid invoices, with the cash typically made available to you within 24-hours.

How Invoice Discounting Works

When you raise an invoice you send a copy to both your customer and Invoice Discounting provider. The Invoice Discounting provider will then advance you cash against your unpaid invoices, typically this is between 80% – 95% of the invoices value.

Cash advanced by the Invoice Discounting provider will usually be in your bank account within 24 hours of receiving the invoice.

You retain control of your sales ledger and chase customers for payment as usual. You then pay the Invoice Discounting provider a service fee plus a percentage of the cash you have been advanced.
