There are many small businesses that are finally awarded a long, much needed commercial or government contract that have a cash flow dilemma, this is more so the case with shorter contract jobs.
There are many cases where some small businesses may make thousands of dollars in a matter of days, but then may make $25,000 over a year’s time. Invoice factoring creates the opportunity for those small businesses to make ends meet with payroll, equipment rental and materials.
In the case of lack of a better term, factoring is a financing agreement which allows some small businesses and contractors to keep their company going while times are tough and the money is not there for payroll and other necessities in order to not shut down and file bankruptcy. If you are in the small business industry this is an easier and quicker way to make ends meet, with no ceiling limit; as long as your business gross keeps going up. Of course your credit will play a large role in whether or not you are able to “borrow” on your invoice factoring financing.
This is one of the quicker ways to borrow, and again there are no limits, only set limitations based on the growth or downgrade of your business. For those who are not familiar with invoice factoring it will be important for you to sit down with your lender and go over the entire basis of factoring and see if it is the best route for you.
