The lender (called a factor) generally pays 70-75% of the value of the invoice upfront and the balance amount after deduction of interest and other charges on receiving full payment from the customers. The responsibility to collect payment from the customers, manage the credit period of the business lies with the factor.
Invoice Discounting: Invoice Discounting is a method in which the company uses its unpaid accounts receivable as collateral for getting a loan which could be as much as 90 per cent of what the invoices are worth. The company itself is responsible for debtors’ collection, invoice processing & follow up for payment. There is a remote chance that your customers will be aware of your credit facility being availed against the invoices.
