Late payment is dangerous.

It destroys the mental health of SME owners, it risks their business, leaves them unable to grow and even makes them perpetrators of the same damaging practice, as many then can’t pay their own suppliers on time as there’s no cashflow.

It’s time to make late payers pay!

Here’s how you make them pay… invoice factoring.

FACT: 43% of SMEs spend £4.4bn in admin chasing late payment.

FACT:  34% of SMEs rely on overdrafts to meet monthly obligations.

FACT: 20% of SME Directors have been forced to take a pay cut due to lack of cashflow as a result of late payment. 

Invoice factoring, also referred to as invoice finance, uses your debtor book to advance monies of up to 90% (balance when invoice settled) within 24hrs.

No longer do you have to spend time and money chasing late payment - 11% of SMEs struggling to chase late payment are forced to employ someone to do it for them – because your factoring provider will chase them for you.

The day to day management of a factoring facility couldn’t be simpler to manage:

  • Issue your invoice as normal, copying in your factoring provider via the secure online portal.
  • You are paid up to 90% of each issued invoice (balance paid when invoice settled) straight away.
  • Your provider chases payment on your behalf as part of the inclusive credit control facility.
  • Your secure online portal will display comprehensive details of your invoicing including those issued, paid, outstanding and settled.

There’s even an invoice factoring facility to choose from should you want to only factor selected, ad hoc invoices to cover larger seasonal needs or there’s a confidential facility whereby your customer will not be aware of the involvement of a third party.

FACT: 40% of SMEs say larger businesses are worse at late payment

FACT: 27% of SMEs say they would be in a stronger position to grow if paid on time.

With invoice factoring your SME can grow, expand and thrive because you will be paid on time, every time – within 24hrs in fact!
