Factoring, Invoice factoring, and Commercial Factoring
Factoring, although referred to in many ways, is simply the sale of an invoice to a third party at a discount typically in an ongoing manner. Credit Card processing is in fact the factoring of that sales transaction i.e. the store owner ‘sells’ the transaction to the credit card company and you, or we, pay the credit card company using open terms while the credit card company pays the store owner in 24 – 72 hours Same process! From here there are many derivations that have evolved because situations vary and in order to facilitate working capital so too must the programs vary. Invoice factoring for instance is typically done one invoice at a time. Commercial Factoring is a term referring to the invoice factoring of accounts receivables created between the supplier of goods and/or services with other businesses and or government entities that are not construction oriented. There is also no third party billing which means that the work is done by a source for a customer but is paid by someone else as an insurance company for instance

In addition to your Working Capital Program letting us pay everyone on time, your interaction with our creditors went beyond anything that we could ask for. You have positioned us to compete with the “Big Guys” …. something that we never expected to accomplish this having been in business less than a year!”

“When one of our clients was on the verge of being foreclosed on and you proved that you could provide the cash flow he needed to remain solvent, the bank and his creditors relaxed their pressure and let him run his business instead of him worrying about how he could pay his bills.”
Judy Perry, Hampstead Nursing and Staffing, Hampstead, NH
” … after being promised loans that never materialized I was growing frustrated. Although all that I thought you did was get people credit lines, you aligned my whole business for me so that it all made sense again – something that I will always be thankful for! When I met you I sensed that you took a lot of pride in seeing your customers succeed but I never expected to experience the commitment you always showed!”
