It takes an investment to start a business when things such as equipment, insurance, and office supplies are needed to even open the doors. One of the challenges many start-up companies face is obtaining enough working capital to get off the ground running.
One way many start-ups fund their business is through invoice factoring. Invoice factoring, also known as accounts receivable financing, is a debt-free financing solution that unlocks working capital that is normally tied up in receivables.
How Does Invoice Factoring Work?
Many people wonder how does factoring work? It is a fairly simple process that gives your business access to capital so that you can operate and grow without adding additional debt.
Why Does Invoice Factoring Work for Start-Up Companies?
Approval for invoice factoring is based on your customers’ credit rather than yours. So even if you have little credit history, no credit or less-than-perfect credit, you can still be approved.
Obtaining a bank loan or a line of credit can be a challenge for businesses with little or no financial history. Even if you are approved, the amount might not be sufficient to fund daily operating expenses and meet payroll obligations. If you choose a factoring company that will grow with you, it is easy to obtain more capital. For many factoring companies, the more that you invoice, the more cash you’ll receive.
As a start-up company, you don’t have time to wait to get your business going. It can take weeks or even months to get financing through a bank when you go through the application and approval process. With invoice factoring, the setup can be done in just a few days and funding can be done within 24 hours.
More Available Cash
With invoice factoring, start-up companies have access to more available cash giving them the opportunity to take on new opportunities for growth. The table below illustrates how invoice factoring can increase your bottom line.
