Manufacturing companies offer their customers extended payment terms on products. These longer payment terms sometimes create stress on cash flow and can affect the bottom line. Many small and mid-size manufacturers use invoice factoring as a source of reliable, consistent cash flow. Factoring provides manufacturing companies cash to meet payroll, purchase raw materials, and market their products.
Invoice factoring is a type of financing used by businesses in many different industries, including manufacturing. The factoring process is simple. Once a company sells their products or completes its service, the customer is invoiced. Businesses using factoring send the invoice or invoices to their factoring company. The factoring company pays an immediate cash advance based on the percentage of the invoice value, generally around 90%. The invoice is then sent on to the customer for processing and payment. Once the invoice is paid to the factoring company, the remaining balance, less a small factoring fee, is paid to the business.
Factoring is an ideal source of financing for manufacturers that do not qualify for traditional funding or companies in need of immediate access to funds. Qualifying for invoice factoring is a straightforward process, and an account can be set up in a manner of days. Once a company begins factoring on a regular schedule, the ability to control finances and manage cash flow is much easier.
Manufacturing firms using factoring get access to needed cash and eliminate the stress of waiting on customer payments.
