One of the most common questions about Factoring of Accounts Receivable is what businesses can benefit from it. The answer must be divided into categories because factoring offers multiple advantages that appeal to different types of businesses.
With Factoring, you don’t have to wait 30 to 90 days to get paid from your clients because you sell your unpaid invoices to a company called Factor. This company pays you immediately and takes care of collecting the payment from your customers in exchange for a small fee.
This is a simple, fast, and versatile process that doesn’t create debt because companies that factor their accounts receivable are using their own money instead of taking out a loan. The distinction is converting the unpaid invoices into cash by factoring rather than taking out a loan to have cash available.
Businesses of all sizes can benefit from Factoring. While banks may hesitate to lend funds to companies without a long credit history and big profit margins, Factoring is available to many different organizations across a wide range of industries, from small familiar operations to big transnational companies
