November 23, 2015

1. Factoring Gives Staffing Agencies Reliable, Consistent Cash Flow

According to, inadequate financing is one of the biggest reasons people fail in the staffing industry. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Many staffing agencies are taking advantage of factoring, as it provides many no-hassle benefits to keep your agency financially on track, even when business is slow. Staffing agencies have numerous financial obligations such as workers’ compensation insurance, office equipment and payroll that can be solved by factoring.

2. Growing Your Staffing Agency with Factoring

Is your client base growing faster than your line of credit? Consider factoring as a solution to fund business expenses and payroll to keep moving forward. Factoring gives staffing agencies an ongoing, consistent supply of cash that actually grows as your staffing agency grows. And when you land a new client or contract, even more working capital becomes available to meet the needs of your growing staffing agency.

3. Payroll Funding for Staffing Agencies

No matter what, you have to pay your employees. But, unlike a traditional lender, factoring isn’t actually a bank loan. It won’t add liabilities to your balance sheet. It won’t show up as debt. And most importantly, the amount doesn’t need to be capped. If business is picking up, you can choose to factor as many or as little of your receivables as you want for an immediate cash flow injection. Factoring is the fastest and simplest way to turn your invoices into real working capital for your staffing agency business.

4. No-Cost Back-Office Support for your Growing Staffing Agency

By factoring your staffing agency invoices, you can focus more on your recruiting efforts and day-to-day operations, and much less time on your back office.

5. Staffing Agency Factoring is Flexible

Since factoring has a less rigorous underwriting process and a quick turnaround time (unlike a traditional bank loan,) you can realistically have access to working capital in as few as three days. And unlike a bank loan, factoring doesn’t limit the amount of financing your staffing agency can receive. Furthermore, if your receivables grow, so can your available working capital.
