  • News

How much are you currently owed? A staggering £23.4billion is owed to UK businesses, so it's time to stand firm and combat late payment. 

The armour your SME needs to fight against late payment is invoice factoring. You factor invoices to release monies tied up in unpaid invoices. This allows your business to be advanced up to 90% on monies owed to you within 24hrs (balance paid once your customer settles).

Nearly 50,000 UK businesses have armed themselves against late payment by using invoice factoring. It ensures they have a fluid cashflow, enabling them to cover overheads, use working capital to grow, to bring peace of mind and security to their SME.  

In a recent report, 48% of businesses have confirmed that they have seen late payment worsen during the pandemic, in particular after the third lockdown.  It’s something I’m hearing all the time.  Larger businesses are taking excessive amounts of time to settle their invoices. It’s not right. SMEs are the most vulnerable. They have been hit the worst during this global pandemic. It’s time to take back control, gear yourself up for battle and factor invoices for immediate payment!

Late payment has a terrible impact on our SMEs – the backbone of the UK economy.

  • It stunts growth.
  • It’s dries up cashflow.
  • It risks bankruptcy.
  • It hinders investment.
  • It damages profitability.

It’s time to fight for success not wave a white flag for mere survival.

Invoice factoring is the protection your SME needs to survive, thrive and make a comeback as the world recovers from Covid.

Get battle ready:

  • Issue your invoice as usual with a copy to your factoring provider.
  • You are advanced up to 90% on each issued invoice straight away (balance when customer settles).
  • Inclusive of a credit control facility so you do not have to chase payment, it’s done for you.
  • Fully secure online portal to show all invoices issued, advanced, pending and settled leaves you in complete control of your finances.
  • Facility organically grows with your business to naturally support your growth and expansion.

FACT: 55% of businesses also cited that even with late paying customers, they are forced to continue doing business with culprits, putting an even greater strain on cashflow.

This strain is eased with invoice factoring because your debtor book is used to boost your SME cashflow. It’s a business’s most valuable asset yet risks nothing.
