What is invoice finance?

Invoice finance is a finance facility provided by an invoice finance lender to help business owners leverage their unpaid invoices, giving them an instant cash injection into the business. Invoice finance companies enable business owners to release up to 90% of the value of their unpaid invoices within 24 hours.

On payment of the invoice from the customer, the lender will release the final amount minus any fees and charges for the service.


How does the invoice finance process work?

Invoice financing is essentially an invoice funding solution whereby payments are collected on your behalf, managed by our team of expert credit controllers so you can focus on running your business.

Invoice finance companies offer businesses a solution to maintain their own credit control processes, which therefore remains strictly confidential so your customers are unaware of their involvement.

Try our invoice financing calculator below to find out what the costs will be based on a combination of your company's turnover, the amount you'd like to release from each invoice and the average time it takes for your customers to pay you.

What are the different types of invoice finance?

There are different types of invoice finance options available to businesses depending on the situation and level of control they require in collecting their unpaid invoices. The main different types of invoice finance include: invoice factoring, invoice discounting, selective invoice discounting, debt factoring, accounts receivable factoring and spot factoring. We will work with you to find you the best invoice finance product for your business, so don't worry if you're unsure exactly which product is right for you.
