Invoice factoring, which many refer to as accounts receivable financing or receivables financing, is a straightforward form of business funding that many companies use. The process is simple: you provide your invoices (receivables) to a factoring company, and it provides you an advance on the invoice total. When your customer pays weeks or months later, the factor provides the remainder, less a factoring discount. This alleviates your worry of cash flow, allowing you to focus on other pressing business matters.

Incorporated in 1891, Ontario has progressed in many aspects becoming one of the most populous and popular cities in California. It is a city in San Bernardino County, which is situated to the east of Los Angeles County and to the west of the Inland Empire region. Ontario, which covers an area of 50,006 square miles, boasts world-class infrastructure, amenities, and attractions of all varieties. The name of the city points to its connection with Ontario in Canada; it was named after Ontario Model Colony development built in the area by an engineer, George Chaffey, and two of his brothers, who hailed from there.
Before Ontario was founded in 1881 by George Chaffey and his brothers, the semi-nomadic Native American Tongya Serrano tribe used the area as a hunting and foraging ground. However, the history of Ontario as a city began in 1881 when a Canadian engineer, George Chaffey, and his two brothers purchased 6218 acres of San Antonio lands with water rights in 1881. They established a settlement on the land, which they named Ontario Model Colony after their home province in Canada. Before leaving the settlement, they expanded it to San Antonio Canyon in the north and the Southern Pacific Railroad in the south. The Chaffey brothers not only constructed the major Euclid Avenue thoroughfare, but also a drainage system through which water is diverted to more flat land in Mount San Antonio’s foothills.
Through an act of Congress, the city was declared a Model Irrigation Colony in 1903. Chaffey planned the Model Colony very well, ensuring it included modern facilities. For example, Euclid Avenue, which is a two hundred foot wide, eight-mile-long road, had electric lights, a local educational institution, and long distance telephone lines, which are among the first. The position of the Ontario Model Colony close to the water was one of the contributing factors to the growth of the area. It served as a source of water to the rural communities for irrigation purposes.
But Chaffey did not stay long in the area. He left the settlement in the care of Charles Frankish, an entrepreneur when he left for Australia. Frankish also worked hard to improve the infrastructural development of the colony. A water fountain was constructed and commissioned under his watch on Euclid Avenue, in order to attract farmers to the abundance of water in the area. The first gravity mule car was driven in 1887 through this Avenue. In line with the California Constitution, Ontario was incorporated fully as a city on December 10, 1891.
At its onset, Ontario was an agriculture-based economy. In fact, Chaffey named the settlement Model Colony because the area was suitable for blending agriculture with urban conveniences, such as commerce, churches, and schools. It has a drier climate, which attracted many Easterners and farmers, especially citrus farmers. Citrus farming thrived in the area. This paved way for the growth of the citrus industry. It was during this period that the Sunkist plant was constructed. Apart from citrus, grapes, lemons, olives, peaches, and walnuts were farmed in the area. But now other economic activities have begun in the city. Ontario has developed significantly today to become the fourth largest city in San Bernardino County, with a population of 163,924 according to the 2010 Census.
Agriculture played an important role in the development of the local economy, starting from the early stages through the modern day. It is home to Graber Oliver House, which is a historic landmark that still produces olives till today. There are agricultural farms of different kinds, including citrus and dairy farms; however, other industries have emerged to boost the economy. Service and warehousing industries have become the chief drivers of the economy. A number of companies such as MBM, Nordstrom, Genuine Parts/NAPA, Cardinal Health, and AutoZone have their main distribution centers in the city. There are still a couple of manufacturing companies such as Maglite, even though manufacturing is not contributing as strongly to the economy as it once had. Some of the companies that have their bases in Ontario are Phoenix Motorcars, Shiekh Shoes, Famous Stars and Straps, and The Icee Company.
As a distribution center, it is normal for the transport industry to thrive in the city. Ontario International Airport is the largest employer in the city according to the 2014 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report of Ontario. Other top employers are the United Parcel Service (UPS), Target Distribution, Securitas, Sam’s Club Distribution and Safariland.
Ontario offers vacationers and residents the opportunity to improve their well-being. Vacationers and residents that want to get relief from stress or to detoxify will have a top choice among retreats and spas.

Whether you are living in the city center or outside the city center, you will always find a spa that will provide you with the best treatment.
