Purchase Order Financing....



WHY Purchase Order Financing?

In today’s tight credit environment, more and more companies are turning to alternative and nonbank financing options to access the capital they need to keep business running smoothly. Whatever it takes to "Move Your Business Forward".


Factoring is the outright purchase of a business’s outstanding accounts receivable by a commercial finance company or “factor.” Typically the factor will advance the business between 70% and 90% of the value of a receivable at the time it purchases the receivable. The balance, less the factoring fee, is released when the invoice is collected. The factoring fee — which is based on the total face value of the invoice, not percentage advanced — typically ranges from 1.5 percent to 5.5 percent, depending on such aspects as the collection risk and how many days the funds are in use.


Under a factoring contract, the business can usually pick and choose which invoices to sell to the factor — it’s not typically an all-or-nothing scenario. Once it purchases an invoice, the factor manages the receivable until it’s paid. The factor will essentially become the business’s credit manager and accounts receivable department, performing credit checks, analyzing credit reports, and mailing and documenting invoices and payments.
