What is Invoice Finance?


Lochend Finance can access a range of different Invoice Finance solutions for your business improving your cash flow and reducing your reliance on other forms of finance, such as bank overdrafts. Invoice Finance is suitable for newly established businesses as well as those that have been trading for some time. Invoice Finance comes in different forms and we can guide you to what is best for your business from Confidential Invoice Discounting, Factoring, Construction Finance and Spot Invoice Factoring.


How does it work?

All styles of Invoice Finance work in a similar way. The business raises an invoice which normally takes 30, 60 or even 90 days to be paid. The Invoice Finance provider will advance up to 90% of the value of that invoice within 24 hours. The business receives the balance of the invoice once it has been paid, less charges and interest.


As mentioned above, there are 4 main types of Invoice Finance:-

  • Confidential Invoice Discounting
  • Factoring
  • Construction Finance
  • Spot Invoice Factoring


For a detailed description of how each of these differ, take a look at our Guide to Invoice Finance which can be accessed here.
