Debtor Finance - How it Works
Debt Factoring, Debtor
Finance, Invoice Discounting, Cash Flow
Financing are all descriptions of the same type of business
The essential element is that you sell your accounts receivable
(i.e. your invoices) to a financier at a discount.
The amount of the discount represents the charge by a financier on
providing the money to you e.g. this might be regarded as an
charge for the provision of funds.
The financier pays you now and collects the money directly from the
person or company that owes it to you in full at a later time.
If you provide the factoring request to us by 2.00pm, Woodsman
Funding will have the payment in your bank the next morning.
Depending on the industry in which you work, Woodsman Funding will
usually advance between 80% and 100% of the invoiced amount less
the discount amount. The amount of the usual advance is agreed
between us when we set up the funding arrangements. If the advance
is less than 100% then Woodsman Funding provides the remainder of
the amount to you with 48 hours of receipt from the person or
that pays the invoice.
