Guide to Factoring

A quick search of the world wide web will reveal hundreds of thousands of companies offering factoring services. But how do you know which company or service to go for.

Some simple advice will hopefully point you in the right direction. If full factoring is required with full credit control than it is widely believed and  recommended that a specialist or independent factoring  company is better than a bank owned factoring company. Why? Because these smaller companies have been set up with offering factoring and factoring only. They are usually big enough to provide the right level of funding however they are small enough to care about your business and provide the appropriate level of  support and flexibility which is so much lacking with some of the bank based lending services.

Which factoring company is best for you depends on the nature of your debtor book, how long your business has been established, how profitable your business is, the level of turnover and your geographic location. There are many a factoring broker that after only a brief discussion will be able to quickly determine which two or three funders are best for your particular businesses requirements. And the good thing is that the service is usually free. A broker will usually take an introductory commission from the factoring company. All lenders offer commissions to brokers so you can be assured that you will be introduced to the best possible funder
