Factoring Services

by Ivan Hummers

Many businesses have heard about banks and private companies that offer factoring services to assist businesses in paying accounts receivables until the actual bill is paid, however many businesses are still concerned about the actual facts regarding factoring. Questions that most businesses want to know is how much money do factoring firms provide private businesses, are fees high for factoring services, how long it takes to become approved for factoring, what benefits does a company receive if it uses factoring services as well as a whole host of other questions. However, there are no definite answers to these questions about factoring because each business receives a personalized quote depending on the business circumstances. However, there are some general answers that will help you understand factoring a little more.

Generally, when a company is interested in factoring in order to have receivables paid they can generally receive from 70% 85% of the amount of receivables up front and then the rest of the money when the invoices are actually paid. However, this percentage varies from factoring company to factoring company and the situation of the business seeking factoring services. Also, when the balance is paid to the company the factoring companys fees are deducted first.

In general, most companies that are approved for factoring services receive in the neighborhood of 70% 85% of their accounts receivables within a few days of being approved for factoring. Then, when the invoice is actually paid the factoring company will pay the final percentage after it has taken out the fees associated with the transaction. Most of the time percentages are in this range, but the actual number depends on many variables.

Another question that companies interested in factoring frequently ask is how long the factoring process takes and what they have to do to get the process started. Well, in general, the time span depends on the company that is offering factoring services. Some companies are able to receive funding within a week and a half and others might take up to a month or longer.

This depends on multiple variables, so the easiest thing to do is set up an appointment with a factoring firm to assess your business situation and time period for factoring.

Many businesses also want to know why they should use factoring services and the various benefits associated with factoring. Factoring gives your company guaranteed cash flow and helps you manage accounts receivables better. Other than this, many factoring companies provide weekly reports with your account activity as well as credit checks for companies you are considering working with.

In order to make a decision about whether factoring is good for your business or not, you will need to sit down and evaluate your accounts receivables, cash flow, need for capital and cash flow, as well as the benefits a factoring company could provide your business compared to the drawbacks. Many factoring companies offer consultations as well, so this might be a good idea in order to find out where you are and what possibilities are available to you.

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.

How Buying Invoices Works If you have a problem with cash flow, you might consider finding a company that engages in buying invoices to get you on the right track again. Often, through no fault of their own, small and large companies find themselves in a bind because they dont have enough cash to meet debt payments, to pay employees, or to invest in needed materials and manpower in order to bid on lucrative, time-sensitive contracts. In these cases and some others, companies buying invoices from you may be able to help. How factoring your invoices can help your business grow Every day many business owners hit a wall. That wall prevents them from growing their business, or at least, severely limits the speed at which they can grow their companies. Sometimes, and especially for small and mid size businesses, the wall appears to be insurmountable. That wall is lack of working capital. Lets take a look at the most common source of working capital problems: extending payment terms to customers. How to maintain a steady cash flow For any business to be successful the most important factor is availability of ready cash and maintenance of a healthy cash flow. However, during day-to-day operation of business it is often found to be the most difficult task and every year a big percentage of the small businesses close down for lack of ready cash. Here are some tips that are really effective for small businesses to maintain a steady cash flow. How to Select the Best Invoice Factoring Finance Company for your Business Factoring is an innovative method of business financing that allows clients to get an accelerated payment on their slow paying invoices. Traditionally, when a company offers its services to another business, they need to wait between thirty to sixty days to get paid. Although companies that have a large cash cushion in the bank can absorb the cost of waiting to be paid, small and medium sized businesses cannot. This can jeopardize a companys ability to meet existing payment obligations, or worse, prevent it from capitalizing on new opportunities. Improving Cash Flow with Invoice Factoring and Purchase Order Financing These financial solutions offer convenient, cost-effective and immediate access to working capital. Invoice factoring and purchase order financing are suitable for companies in just about any industry. They can provide financial support to expand, manage business surges or even meet day-to-day operating expenses. And theyre ideal if your company is newer and cant obtain a loan.
