Businesses need cash flow to operate and serve their customers. Invoice factoring is a source of financing many environmental contractors use to build cash flow. Invoice factoring enables business operators to build fast, consistent cash flow without increasing debt.

What is Invoice Factoring for Environmental Services?

Get started factoring for environmental services.

Invoice factoring is a type of financing used by small and mid-size businesses to improve cash availability. Instead of waiting for 30 days, 60 days, or longer on customer payments, environmental services firms sell their open invoices to a factoring company, such as Scale Funding, for an immediate cash advance. Clients use this money to meet payroll, manage the company expenses, or fund new opportunities.

Factoring for environmental services contractors is an easy process. Start by choosing a factoring company that meets the needs of your business. You should consider the advance rate, factoring fees, and knowledge of your industry in the selection process.

Invoice factoring with Scale Funding is straightforward. Once your business is set-up for factoring, send in your new invoices. Scale Funding will advance you cash the same day.  The invoices are sent on to your customer, who processes and pays the invoices in their usual manner. Once the invoice is paid to Scale Funding by your customer, you receive the remaining invoice balance, less the factoring fee.

The Benefits of Factoring for Environmental Services

Factoring for Environmental Services supplies cash.

Companies use factoring for a variety of reasons. The primary reason is factoring ends the stress and worry of waiting for customer payments. The cash from invoice factoring is available to use immediately.

Factoring is not a loan; therefore no new or additional debt is created. This makes factoring especially appealing to businesses interested in minimizing their debt.

To qualify for factoring, a company must provide work or services to business customers with established credit and payment histories. Factoring companies base the factoring lines on this information, not the credit score or history of the new factoring client.
