Accounts Receivable Financing
What is Accounts Receivable Financing?
Accounts receivable financing is a method where your company's unpaid invoices serve as collateral for immediate cash. It typically provides 80% of the invoice value immediately, with the factoring company handling customer payments. Once paid in full, you receive the remaining balance, less a factoring fee. This fee, typically starting at 3% of the invoice total, is based on how quickly your customer pays. Apart from invoices, you can use other receivables like purchase orders and inventory for funding. AR financing, secured by your company's assets or debts, often has more flexible requirements, making it easier to qualify for than traditional business loans, even for startups.

Benefits of accounts receivable financing
Improved Cash Flow: Accounts receivable financing allows businesses to access immediate cash based on their unpaid invoices, eliminating the waiting period associated with customer payments and improving liquidity.
Reduced Collection Hassles: With this form of financing, the factoring company handles debt collection, relieving businesses of the time-consuming and sometimes difficult process of chasing down customer payments.
Easier Qualification: Compared to traditional financing methods, accounts receivable financing often has more flexible eligibility criteria. It can be particularly beneficial for newer businesses or those with less-than-perfect credit, as it's primarily based on the quality of the receivables rather than the creditworthiness of the business.
