Invoice Finance Summary

Invoice Finance allows you to use your unpaid invoices as security to borrow money for your business. Provided your business is invoicing other businesses or government organisations, and these invoices are outstanding, you can qualify for this type of finance.

Invoice Finance can be useful to help with cash-flow problems when your clients are slow to pay their invoices. It is also a relatively simple way to obtain finance. Invoice finance companies will want to have confidence that the invoices are sound, and while they may look at your credit report, they are not as concerned with how long your business has been established, your total revenue or your profitability.

There are two main types of Invoice Finance: Factoring and Invoice Discounting. The main difference between these two is that with factoring you have to finance all your invoices, and with invoice discounting you get to choose which invoice will be financed. The maximum amount you can borrow will depend on the total amount of outstanding invoices, and the financial strength and creditworthiness of the business that owes you money.

How does Invoice Finance Work?

In Australia, Invoice Factoring is sometimes also known as Debtor Finance or Accounts Receivable Finance. It is a quick and easy way to get cash with no credit check and no need for collateral.

There are two main types of Invoice Finance: Invoice Factoring and Invoice Discounting. Here’s an explanation:

Invoice Factoring

Invoice Factoring allows you to outsource your accounts receivable function so that you can focus on running your business.

It is suitable for all businesses and it can also suit those with little trading history.

With an Invoice Factoring contract, you will generally be required to enter into a contract for 12 months or more and will need to finance all of your invoices. You can generally receive up to 80% of each invoice when issued and you will be charged interest based on how long it takes your customers to pay. With Invoice Factoring, your customers will be notified, and the loan company will collect payments on your behalf.

Invoice Discounting

With Invoice Discounting, you will generally not be required to enter into any contract and you can pick and choose which invoice you finance. It’s more flexible, but…

…invoice discounting is most suitable to established businesses with good accounts receivable departments.

Like Invoice Factoring, you can generally receive up to 80% of each invoice when issued but the difference with Invoice Discounting is that you will be charged interest only on the invoices you choose to finance. Another difference is that your customers will not be notified, and you, rather than the loan company, will be required to collect payments from your customers.

Virtual Line of Credit

A relatively new development in the world of Invoice Finance is that you can obtain a virtual line of credit secured by your outstanding invoices. This revolving line of credit can be drawn down based on your total outstanding invoices at any point in time, rather than linked to the date of any one particular invoice. Typically, approval is made after an analysis of your invoice payment history, through reviewing your accounting software.
