How Invoice Discounting can help your business

If you find yourself waiting to be paid for the work you’ve done, or need an additional cash injection to help with your growth plans, then Invoice Discounting can be one way to help you manage your cashflow and focus on developing your business.

It is ideal for businesses who face cashflow challenges or want to finance their growth. It can fill the gap between raising customer invoices and getting paid, releasing cash that can help you manage your business's day-to-day activities or fund its growth.

It also means that you can continue managing your sales ledger, credit control and collecting payments from your customers, unlike Factoring where we manage this process for you.

We help our clients by being discreet

If you do not want your customers to know how you’re funded or if you have reliable collection practices in place and would prefer to keep your credit control function in-house, we can offer confidential Invoice Discounting.

This means we do not tell your customers that you are using an Invoice Discounting facility and you maintain the relationship with your customers, without their knowledge of our involvement. It is always our intention to act in your best interest.
