If you are experiencing or expecting a cash flow crunch, factoring can help steady your company’s financial footing. It is not a business loan — it is a way to get immediate access to your accounts receivable by selling them at a discount to a factoring company.
The money you get is money that is already owed to you, so you are not creating debt and your personal credit is not an issue.
- If your fleet cannot get standard bank financing to expand business or update major equipment
- If your fleet is struggling in its collection efforts
- If your fleet needs help in financing your debtors
Recourse Factoring – The fleet assumes the credit risk for any invoices that cannot be collected.
