Selling Invoices to Increase Working Capital
Sell Your Accounts for Fast and Safe Cash Flow
Selling Receivables Summary
Receivable factoring is a form of business financing that eliminates cash flow funding issues for companies extending credit payment terms. Accounts receivable (A/R) factor financing also provides immediate cash funding for companies lacking cash reserves or working capital by selling invoices or accounts.
A/R Factoring Business Funding
With 20% of businesses failing in year one and over 50% failing within 5-years, small business financing is a significant obstacle to company longevity. And with current economic pressures on inflation, rising interest rates, and declining GDP, cash flow struggles can hurt businesses during a recession. Therefore, Bankers Factoring customizes receivable factoring financing for companies extending credit terms to their customers without sufficient capital.
A/R financing through invoice factoring injects cash flow caused by slow-paying customers. Thus, businesses can better manage finances with a 13-week cash flow (TWCF) model and consistent funding from Bankers Factoring.

What is receivable financing, and how does it work?
Receivable factoring financing is when a business sells unpaid AR invoices in exchange for fast working capital. And selling accounts receivable is a standard financing method called invoice or AR factoring. However, receivable factoring financing does not require the same strict underwriting and qualifications standards as traditional banks and financial lenders.
Financing AR invoices is possible through selling open receivables, which provides debt-free financing. But take note that factoring financing is not a business loan that requires monthly interest and principal payments. Instead, receivable financing can be considered a cash flow accelerator when offering customers extended credit terms.
Receivable factoring works by cash-advancing clients based on their AR value and customer credit. And businesses ready to secure a working capital injection can complete an online funding application to begin the 3 to 5-day financing process.

A/R Invoice Funding
Most sales to commercial customers take place with credit payment terms. But extending credit terms through AR financing allows your customers to pay 30, 60, or 90-days after rendering services or delivering goods. Thus, extended payments are part of the agreement to do business with large commercial customers such as Big Box Retailers and Government Entities.
AR Invoice Funding eliminates the burden placed on businesses lacking cash reserves or financing to support extended credit terms. AR invoice factoring financing enables our customers to offer payment terms while meeting weekly cash flow requirements. Invoice funding financing provides working capital for payroll funding, suppliers, and overhead expenses.
