Accounts receivable financing aka Factoring Invoices is a widely accepted form of financing to increasing the working capital in your business quickly. This method of financing uses your company’s accounts receivable as collateral. This form of financing works by selling your business’ outstanding invoices at a discount to a factoring company (aka an AR financing company) for immediate cash flow.

More details on Factoring Invoice Financing Programs:

In factoring, a maximum account line is given, but the most important issue to have your customers approved as eligible factoring accounts.  There is also the advance rate which really varies based on the credit worthiness of the customers.  Many factoring companies like to provide high advance rates to attract new clients but these advance rates are always subject to change.  In fact, PMF Bancorp’s advance rates are often 100 or 200% higher than other firms because we have so many more lending programs than the other firms since we are a licensed commercial lender.

Concerning invoices to be funded, the amount funded will depend on the gross amount of the invoice or receivable, the credit worthiness of the account, the age of the specific receivable / invoice, your industry, as well as many other criteria. Naturally, a more current invoice will be easier to process and to provide the maximum advance. The amount received from an AR financing line will be less than the total value of the invoices that your business assigns as collateral.

The repayment period for Invoice Factoring or an AR line is generally shorter than for most other loans. Since payments are made as invoices are collected.  The factoring invoice advance should be covered once all the invoices have been paid. In the majority of cases, the term for repayment is no more than 90 days.  Alternatively, our business loan product deducts payments from your operating account on a monthly basis typically.

The benefits for your business to use accounts receivable financing are clear and direct.  Not to mention you will have more working capital for growth, you will also have more free time without the worry about credit and collections.   With your extra time, you will be able to focus on other more profitable activities like expanding a business line or selling more products or services. In addition, this extra access to working capital will enable you overcome the problem of having the majority of your cash tied up in AR or inventory.

As a direct result, you can focus on growing your business and bringing in more profit.
