Everything you need to know about Invoice Finance

What is invoice finance?

Invoice financing is simply a way to release the cash that’s tied up in your outstanding invoices.

Instead of waiting for your customers to pay, you borrow against the money you’re owed. Put simply, it's the best way to get the money you are owed - quicker!


Factoring vs. Invoice Discounting

Factoring and Invoice Discounting are a type of Invoice Financing and the difference between them is quite simple:

  • Factoring allows you to get the money you’re owed without the wait but we chase up your invoices for you.
  • Invoice Discounting offers the same benefit of Factoring, but you’re responsible for keeping the relationship with your customers and chasing invoices when necessary.
