non recourse invoice factoring

Invoice factoring can release up to 90% of a businesses unpaid invoices. Choose the right finance company and it is possible to get the cash released to your bank in 24 hours. However when it comes to providing bad debt protection or a factoring facility with non recourse not all finance companies are the same. As we have mentioned in previous blogs factoring adds value to any business. It is not just about re lasing cash, it is about choosing a finance company that can provide a credit control service in a efficient manner without upsetting any of your customers in the process. The bad debt protection is exactly the same in that not all finance companies are the same therefore it is imperative that you choose the right finance company for your particular requirements.

Bad debt protection is available as an add on the factoring or invoice discounting. The level of bad debt protection will depend on the quality of your debtor book as the level of protection depend s on the credit insured limits available against each of your customers. As different finance companies use different insurance companies to provide their limits you wll get a variety of different opinions across the market place. An independent finance company will use a specialist insurance broker to get the best possible limit. A bank owned factoring company will as a rule use their own in house insurance to provide a non recourse facility. We are aware of one bank applying a £10k insurance against each of its customers debtors. This can work very well if you have alot of smaller businesses on your books. However the same bank is overall  applying quite low  funding limit against its customers. For example   we have seen a scenario whereby a customer had 10 regular customers that it factored with on a regular basis. A £10k insurance back limit was applied to each of these customers therefore in theory providing a total facility of £100k. However the overall facility was limited at £50k. So be careful as finance companies will give it to you on one hand and take it way with another!!!!!!
