What is invoice finance and what types exist?

It is common for companies to tie up a lot of capital in the company, as result of the time lag between when a company's customers pay compared to when the company has to purchase goods.

Invoice finance is a good option to improve liquidity and reduce administrative burden in the company. Invoice finance means that a company sells or pledges its invoices to a invoice financing company, which pays for the invoices directly. Invoice finance frees up capital in the company, which gives more room for investments and new projects.

A invoice financing company pays you most of the invoiced amount immediately and then collects the payment directly from your customers. They also handle administration and any reminders.

Invoice finance

The day after your invoicing, you will receive 80-100% of the invoices value in your account

Your limit is continuously adjusted. You get a larger limit if sales increase

Invoice discounting

You sell single invoices or several invoices continuously and get paid the entire invoice value minus commission

You always use the credit to 100%, which can lead to higher costs

4 questions to decide if invoice financing is right for your business

4 questions to decide if invoice financing is right for your business

Are your sales within B2B?

Invoice financing is most advantageous for B2B invoices. However, there are also invoice financing companies that accept invoices for private individuals.

Does your company have at least SEK 1 million in turnover?

Invoices will be sent by the factoring company. It takes some time to setup the integration and therefore several invoice financing companies have a minimum turnover requirement.

How much capital do you need to borrow?

If you need to borrow for a purchase or generally a larger sum, a business loan or business leasing might be more relevant.

What credit terms do you have?

Ideal are payment terms of 30-90 days. The factoring company will assess the creditworthiness of the invoice recipients to determine which invoices can be sold.

There are not only advantages to invoice financing

Since invoce financing is a fairly new way of financing the company, it can feel like a big advantage - a solution to poor cash flow and a lot of administration. But a growing percentage of companies have had negative experiences.

  • High costs - especially if you pay more than 3-4%
  • Locking in expensive contracts - a regular contract has no binding period!
  • Clumsy handling of the customer relationship

It is therefore important to carefully consider the pros and cons before signing an agreement.

Advantages:

You get paid immediately when you send a new invoice and don't have to wait 30-90 days

Du kan försäkra risken att kunden inte betalar (notera dock att du även kan göra det utan factoring)

You can insure the risk that the customer does not pay (note, however, that you can also do it without factoring)

Grows with your business - if you sell more, you get more space

Disadvantages:

It costs and you lose 1-2% of the turnover

Usually more expensive compared to loan financing

Many invoice financing companies have a minimum turnover requirement and therefore it is usually not suitable for start-up companies

You lose control over the management of accounts receivable, which can make it more difficult to maintain good customer relationships

Do customers feel negatively about invoice financing?

Invoice financing is sometimes a negatively charged word. Many business owners think that customers think that their own business is going badly if they need to sell invoices.

Over time, however, costs for invoice financing have become more and more like a regular loan, and more and more entrepreneurs see it as a smart solution for temporary liquidity. What determines the most for the customer is probably which factoring company is chosen, as customer treatment can differ quite strongly. It is therefore more important than with a loan to check different options and review customer reviews.

Will Brand AB

  • Trade
  • Revenue: 5-10m
  • Loan: 0.5m

We are growing faster than expected, and our business webshop (www.willbrand.se) needed an uplift, while we also needed to prepay the production for two significant fall projects.

At Krea, it surprisingly works quickly, and you receive a pleasant and good treatment from their service personnel. The process was significantly smoother compared to the old-fashioned 'banking world'."

  • Restaurant
  • Revenue: 15-20m
  • Loan: 2-3m

We are embarking on a major expansion, opening two new restaurants. Krea's advisors helped us find the right financing, allowing us to focus on the expansion. It was time-efficient, and by having Krea compete with different banks, we also ensured favorable terms for the new financing.

I found it to be a good way to compare different terms, especially now when major banks are not as interested. The process through Krea is significantly faster and saves time compared to going directly to the bank.
