Invoice Discounting in the recovery

As we have probably mentioned more businesses go bust coming out of a recession than actually in it ( so I have been told). This kind of makes sense. The banks are still being tight with the cash and as the recovery takes place you need more working capital. Therefore it is imperative that you get the right kind of working capital facilities in place to meet cash flow needs. 

Get too far into the banks with an overdraft and you might find  yourself in difficulty in switching to a more flexible working capital facility such as invoice discounting. Therefore if you think at any point in the future you may need some help with additional working capital you should seriously look at an invoice finance facility sooner rather than later. Invoice discounting or even factoring will release up to 85% of your unpaid invoices and will grow as your business expands. So long as your business has a good mix of customers you should be able to get funding to the maximum amount available.

Which invoice discounting company is best for your needs depends on the length of time your business has been trading, the level of profitability and the systems and procedures you have in place to monitor and chase your customers. It might be that a bank based invoice discounting company will provide you with the best deal in terms of costing but as we know the banks are not always the most flexible. XL Business Finance has over 10 years experience in helping businesses choose the right funding partner and we guarantee that we will add value to the proceedings.
