Lloyds bank restricting my invoice discounting facility

Hardly no surprises that any business currently using a factoring or invoice discounting facility with LLoyds bank may be having their credit lines severely restricted. XL Business Finance has seen three customers this week all wishing to move from LLoyds due to a restriction in cash availability. On Tuesday this week LLoyds bank announced the loss of 4500 jobs some of which will go in the collections department. We are unclear if itis from their cash flow arm LLoyds TSB Commercial Finance however the bank is obviously under pressure and as such we are starting to see businesses being affected by their noncommercial view.

Traditionally it can quite a long winded affair switching invoice discounting or factoring companies especially as many finnace companies will tie in their customers for a least a year and will require to provide 3 months notice if they wish to switch funder.  Sometimes it  my be possibel to buy one elf out of a deal with the support of a new finance company however even then it might be a  costly exercise. The good news is that many of LLoys customers have been signed up to a short one month notice contract and it is these customers that we are seeing take advantage of their ability to switch finance company. If in doubt we can check any documentation on your behalf and give you some advice from an independent view point.
