After the purchasing company receives full payment for the invoice, you’ll receive the remaining value minus a ’factoring’ fee. This fee is based on a number of factors, including your customer’s credit worthiness, the average terms, and the invoice number and size. However, generally, the invoice factoring fee is up to five percent of the invoice value.
It is usually best to discuss with the client beforehand their preferred method or to come to an agreement about a method you both like. If you want a money transfer, provide all the necessary information. Foreign transfers need more than your account number: in some countries, you need your International Bank Account Number or a Bank Identifier Code (BIC). International transfers also double-charge you: the client’s bank might charge you $20, and your own bank might charge you another $15 to accept the payment. Make it clear which of you will absorb these charges, and talk it out with them. PayPal is another option, but you still get charged a percentage of the transaction.
Approval for invoice factoring doesn’t hinge on your company’s credit history. Instead, it depends on the creditworthiness of your customers. Companies that purchase invoices will evaluate your customers based on their stability and payment track record. The invoice factoring company’s main concern is determining how likely your customers will pay and how quickly.
Most importantly, make sure you have all the necessary information. Make sure there are no spelling mistakes and that your spacing is consistent. Customize your invoice as much as you can. Your logo is a must, but colors and a style that match your other branding items will make it a joy to pay (well, as much as is possible).
Cash flow shortages can happen to almost any business, but invoice factoring can provide a quick, easy solution. Invoice factoring involves the selling of your account receivables or invoices to secure immediate working capital.
