  • What's the difference between factoring and invoice discounting?
    With factoring, you will choose the lender who will collect the payment from your customers, this works best for small to medium sized businsses. Your customers know that you're using factoring but the factoring company will handle the credit control directly and will neogiate terms with customers. Invoice discounting is more straightforward and is used by large and established businesses. Compared to factoring, you will still have access to credit control but your customer will be unaware that you are borrowing against their invoices. With invoice discounting you can avoid a third party (the invoice financier), allowing you to deal directly with your customers.
