Debtor Finance

Last updated 01 Mar 2019
One of the key problems small business owners face is the delay between a sale and the payment of the invoice tying up working capital. This is exacerbated if your customers are slow to pay.

Debtor finance, also known as invoice finance or factoring, allows you to use your accounts receivables as collateral for borrowing giving you immediate cash for the value of up to 80-90% of the value of your invoices. Getting immediate access to your cash allows you to reinvest in your business and grow faster.

Common Uses of Debtor Finance
Borrowing against your invoices allows your business access to the cash from your sales in as little as 24 hours.
Debtor finance mitigates the risks and costs of late or non-payment of invoices which can be a substantial burden for small businesses.
The approval process is often very straightforward as many lenders can now link up directly to your accounting and invoicing software and provide immediate approvals.
Keep in Mind
Debtor finance can be costly as you do not receive the full value of your invoice and you simultaneously pay interest on the amount borrowed.
Repeat late or non-payments by your customers could impact your fees, credit score and ability to secure invoice finance going forward.
Who Qualifies for Debtor Finance?
If you have outstanding invoices, you may qualify for invoice finance. Lenders will focus on the characteristics of your invoices ahead of your business' finance and operating metrics.
However, debtor finance is more readily available to companies with an established trading history and long term customer relationships. You will receive better pricing for your invoices if you can show that specific customer has a history of full, on-time payment.
