Invoice Financing: Empower Business Growth

What Is Invoice Financing?

Invoice financing, or receivables financing, is a form of short term financing that allows a business to borrow against their customers’ unpaid invoices. It differs from the typical unsecured business term loans, because businesses pledge these invoices or account receivables as collateral to receive funds upfront. This business practice is also known as factoring, or factoring invoicing.

Businesses that provide goods or services in bulk to other businesses usually do so on credit. This means that payment is not due immediately, but on a fixed date sometime in the future. In such cases, businesses commonly issue invoices to their customers as an official notice containing the total amount and due date agreed upon by the buyer. Such arrangements are more common in business to business (B2B) operating models.

Many B2B businesses rely on credit, and hence can benefit greatly from invoice financing.

However, offering credit as payment terms to buyers can come with disadvantageous  consequences. Unpaid invoices tie up the sales revenue that could have been reinvested to grow the business. As a result, the narrowing cash flow diminishes the business’s profitability. For example, businesses who submitted their invoice to Vendors@Gov for their goods and services may need to wait 30 days or more before receiving payment, depending on the payment term provided. With invoice financing, your business can increase working capital and maintain your business’ ability to pay for its operating expenses, thus facilitating business growth. Your business will also be able to retain cash flow for urgent needs that may arise unexpectedly.

Hence, receivables financing could be a way for your business to overcome the problems that arise from unpaid invoices. By pledging your invoice to a private funder, you can immediately obtain funds based on a fraction of your invoice amount.

Is Invoice Financing Right For My Business?

As an SME owner, you know the struggle of juggling cash flow. That’s why invoice financing is a game-changer. It’s like having a magic button for your outstanding invoices, letting you focus on what you do best – running and growing your business.

4 Benefits Of Invoice Financing

Immediate Access To Funds

Invoice financing provides you with immediate access to funds tied to your account receivables, increasing your working capital and speeding up your business lifecycle. This ensures that your business will also have access to funds when urgent needs arise. With Poss Capital, you can receive funds within 48 hours of approval. This means that you can be paid as soon as an invoice has been issued to your customer, instead of having to wait for their payment.

No Additional Collateral Required

Receivables financing is based on the value of unpaid invoices, rather than tangible assets. The invoice itself is being pledged as collateral. Therefore, no additional collateral is required. You will not be putting any other business assets at risk.

Flexible Credit Terms

With invoice financing, you will now be able to offer longer credit terms to your buyers, since you can convert your invoices to available working capital before the due date. Hence, you will be able to attract more established customers, who usually favour longer term contracts.

Growth Opportunities

With increased access to funds, you can invest in initiatives that foster business growth, such as expansion or marketing campaigns. Focus on growing your business without having to worry about delayed payments.
