The Beginner’s Guide to Factoring Loans and How They Work

A traditional bank loan isn’t the only way in which you can finance your business. There are alternative financing solutions available, one of which is a factoring loan. Factoring loans have become increasingly popular. If your business has accounts receivables, you may want to consider a factoring loan. It can provide your business with the money it needs to perform its operations. What are factoring loans exactly, and how do they work?

The Beginner’s Guide to Factoring Loans and How They Work

Overview of Factoring Loans

A factoring loan is a form of financing that involves the sale of accounts receivables. Accounts receivables, of course, are unpaid invoices. They are typically categorized as assets. If your business completes a project or service for a customer, you may have to send him or her an invoice. Assuming the customer hasn’t paid this invoice yet, you can sell it to a third-party financing company known as a factor.

How Factoring Loans Work

Contrary to what their name implies, factoring loans aren’t a form of debt. Most loans involve borrowing money from a bank or financing company. There are secured loans that require collateral, and there are unsecured loans that don’t require collateral. Regardless, you’ll typically incur debt when obtaining a loan. Factoring loans are different in the sense that they aren’t a form of debt.

With a factoring loan, you’ll receive money for selling your business’s unpaid invoices to a factor. The factor is the financing company that will purchase your business’s unpaid invoices. Upon purchasing them, the factor will then seek to collect the outstanding amounts from your business’s customers.

Reasons to Choose a Factoring Loan

You won’t have to worry about contacting your business’s customers to collect payments for their outstanding invoices. A factoring loan will eliminate this burden. As previously mentioned, the factor will handle collections.

There’s no fixed limit to factoring loans. You can sell some of your business’s unpaid invoices to a factor, or you can sell all of its unpaid invoices to a factor.

A factoring loan can have a positive impact on your business’s cash flow. The average payment length of an invoice is 30 days. Therefore, you’ll have to wait for up to a month to receive payments from your business’s customers after sending them an invoice. A faster way to get cash is to use a factoring loan. You won’t have to wait for customers to pay their invoices. Instead, you can sell the invoices to a factor.
