Factoring: A Key for Small Business Success

asked about 8 years ago

Factoring is one of the most successful ways many small businesses have fought through the GFC of recent years, making it an exciting franchise opportunity.

What is Factoring?

Factoring, sometimes called invoice factoring or accounts receivable factoring, is a form of financing that allows immediate cash flow, something that many small businesses rely on to keep going. A business sells its invoices to a factoring company for a discounted rate, receiving the finances immediately and all up front.

Growth and Popularity of Factoring

The concept of factoring has been around for centuries. In the early 20th Century factoring was predominantly used in the textile and garment industries. Manufacturers used factoring to purchase large amounts of textiles in order to producing products for sale. Through the mid and late 1900s, increasing bank regulations and interest rates led to more industries taking on the concept of factoring to ensure fast and convenient cash flow.

In recent years, factoring has become an increasingly popular way for small businesses to finance their cash flow. As many banks and lenders become more unwilling to lend to small businesses after the economic recession of recent years, factoring lends itself suitable to a wide range of industries.
