What is Invoice finance?
An Invoice Finance facility cashes your invoices within 24 hours. Your client then repays the Invoice Finance facility at a later date.
Improves cash flow.
Frees up time spent chasing customers for payment.
Covers you against bad debts.
Select which customers to receive immediate payment from.
More flexible but higher interest.

Take control of the front end of your buying cycle and function with payments in real time.
A new dynamic to the way you trade.
Lender funds against individual invoices on a case by case basis (the higher the credit rating of your customer, the lower the interest you would pay) (risk/reward). Credit control required.
Lender funds against your total ledger, which can be uploaded electronically, basic accounting packages required as more monthly reporting is needed by the third party lender. No credit control as it’s all internal.
You must repay the Invoice Finance facility if your client defaults.

Single Invoice Finance
With single invoice finance, you can pick which individual invoices are funded on an ad hoc basis.
This allows for total flexibility but a higher service fee against the invoice (2-3% of gross invoice value every 30 days).
You can employ this facility with or without CHOCCS.
Most invoice facilities charge a service fee (percentage fee against gross invoice value) and Discount or Finance Fee (annualised interest rate on money borrowed).
For businesses that wish to know exactly how much the costs are per invoice for budgeting purposes etc - a ‘single fee’ or ‘bundled fee’ is an option. This is a higher service fee percentage with no interest rate.
Export Debt Funding.
Most invoice financiers will not fund debt outside the UK. Those that do will only fund up to 30% of the ledger being exported. It’s very rare to match 100% of export. Trade Finance may be more suitable. For more information,
