Why Recruitment Companies need Invoice Finance

Invoice finance is a funding solution which helps recruitment companies boost their cash flow. It’s an alternative to more traditional funding methods such as overdrafts and loans with the advantage of not requiring high-value financial assets.


Recruitment Interview

Rise in temporary workers

With many businesses turning to temporary workers, this often leaves candidates on the recruiter’s payroll. These workers may be paid weekly which can limit a recruiter’s cash flow while they wait to receive the funds from the employer. When you have an invoice finance facility in place you could receive the majority of these funds within 24 hours, giving you the cash flow you need to pay workers and invest in growing your business.

Permanent placements

As recruiters invoice other businesses, invoice finance is still a valuable solution for agencies making permanent hires. Increased cash flow can help with late payments and long payment terms to boost your investment potential to scale your business more quickly and win larger contracts.

Invoice factoring

With factoring, you can usually receive the funds from your invoices within 24 hours. With this option, the lender takes over credit control which can save you time and resources if you don’t already have this in place.

For factoring, you need a minimum annual turnover of £25k.

Similar to factoring but with one crucial difference – you are left in charge of credit control. Some businesses prefer this option as your customers will not know that you have a facility in place.
