When company owners need working capital, they have choices. However, some financing options, such as merchant cash advances that deduct payments from your credit cards, can quickly become very costly and endanger the financial future of your business. Other choices, such as traditional bank loans, can be time-consuming, restrictive, and limited to applicants with significant collateral and strong credit scores.
That’s why invoice factoring has become an increasingly popular choice for small and medium-sized businesses and startups. When you need working capital right away, but don’t want to max out your credit cards or take on additional debt, it’s time to explore the benefits of accounts receivable factoring. You can resolve your cash flow problems quickly and easily by factoring your outstanding invoices.
You also have choices in factoring companies and factoring programs. Here’s a checklist of what you can expect when you factor with a leading factoring company:
- Fast payment on submitted and verified invoices, typically same-day payment
