Factoring Can Be An Ideal Solution For Start-Up and/Or Growing Businesses

by Dave Nighswander

Factoring is one of the oldest methods of business financing in existence. The history of factoring dates back to the days of moneylenders in the middle ages. Factoring has been the working capital facility of choice in Europe for centuries. It has taken on a new life in recent years as a financing method for many businesses in the United States.

Factoring is the sale of accounts receivable, as opposed to borrowing against them as you would do with a bank line of credit. By selling your invoices, you generate immediate cash flow instead of having to wait for your customers to pay.

Companies often find themselves in the frustrating position of having sales opportunities which they cannot accept because of the lack of financing to support those sales. Banks normally cannot provide adequate funding for growth due to internal credit policies and external regulatory restraints. Even if a business can qualify, the bank line of credit may be totally inadequate to support the companys sales growth opportunity. Factoring facilities are much easier to implement compared to acquiring a bank line of credit. Factors have more flexibility with regard to documentation and credit issues than banks.

Factoring can be initiated and terminated very efficiently. When making a first-time purchase of invoices from a business, factors typically take one to two weeks to check the credit ratings of the customers and communicate a discount price. The business receives payment in cash from the factoring company after delivery and invoicing a customer. Immediate invoice payment eliminates the sale-to-collection business cycle; thus allowing businesses caught in a cash crunch to obtain fast relief. Turnaround on the sale of receivables is only about 24 hours.

Factoring is a sale of assets (invoices), not a loan. For businesses that either cannot qualify for traditional debt financing or that simply do not want to incur more debt; factoring is good alternative means of funding working capital. Factors purchase all rights in the invoices and the seller has secondary liability for any invoices not collected.

The factors undertake debt collection, but the business remains ultimately responsible to repay any portion of the cash price attributable to an account that went uncollected. Factoring can be an effective solution to funding a short term gap in cash flow for the start-up or rapidly growing business.

5 MISTAKES People Make When Selling Structured Settlements for Cash Mistake 1: Agreeing to sell to the highest bidder. Unfortunately, some brokers or structured settlement/annuity sources will make a high offer just to get someone under contract. Then they will start making excuses and reduce the offer. Once you are under contract with a funding source, it is very difficult to back out. Even if you are able to pull out, you will have to start the whole process over again losing valuable time. Cash Now for Your Business Note People are interested in selling business notes for several reasons. Usually, the prospective seller has decided that he would rather receive the lump sum value of the business, rather than monthly payments. Often that's because he wants to invest in a new business. Other times, the prospective seller has an incentive such as an expensive wedding bill, college tuition or a retirement trip. Factoring Invoices - How to Get Off The Cash Flow Merry-Go-Round All businesses want to be successful and to be successful you must have sufficient cash flow. Are you tired of your unpredictable cash flow cycle? Is the ritual of making incoming cash receipts stretch to cover short-term obligations frustrating your business and making you dizzy? Cash Now for Your Real Estate Contract The private mortgage industry is a relatively young business with roots that can be traced directly to the emergence of seller-backed, or owner, financing. Prior to the very high interest rates of the late 70s and 80s, seller-backed financing was not a common financing option. The only loan option for most real estate buyers was through a bank or savings and loan institution. But with interest rates topping out at 22 percent, financing for real estate was either unavailable or too unattractive for most buyers. Real estate sales plummeted.

Selling Business Notes for Quicker Cash In about 85 percent of all business sales, sellers accept a cash down payment and a promissory note to pay the balance in installments. The note is personally guaranteed by the buyer, and it is secured by the business and its assets in case the buyer defaults. Providing owner financing allows sellers to cater to a broader pool of potential buyers. Should You Sell Your Structured Settlement The courts have just awarded you a settlement in the amount of $1.3 million dollars for injuries you sustained while using the Widget Corporation's product. However, the terms of the settlement require that Widget pay you a small amount right now, with the remaining funds to be dispersed over the next 20 years. This "structured settlement" works fine for some people, but you have medical bills that need to be paid now. What can you do about it? Answer: you can sell your structured settlement and receive additional cash now. Structured Settlements 101 How Structured Settlements Work A structured settlement is a contract under which an insurance company undertakes to make periodic payments to an injured party as part of a bodily injury claim settlement or to a surviving family member to whom a large settlement has been awarded. These are just two examples of where a structured settlement might be used. Structured settlements have become popular because they offer substantial benefits to all parties involved in the settlement agreement. Structured Settlements - Should You Sell Yours In recent years, it has become more common for victims of accidental injury who accept a settlement from the at-fault party to accept a structured settlement instead of a lump-sum payment. With a structured settlement, the injured party receives payments over an agreed-upon length of time - five years, ten years, or even a lifetime, rather than receiving payment up front in a lump sum.
