What is the Financial Factoring?

The factoring*  is a financial instrument through which a company, especially a Small and Medium Business, assigns its invoices for sales of products or services to a financial institution, to take charge of collecting, receiving an advance or the total amount stated on the invoices, except the commission that the financial institution will charge as their commission. This type of financing provides the added benefit of having more working capital to continue operating. Often, this tool allows small businesses to pay their workers on time, especially when payment terms are extended several months to their clientele.

In a typical factoring arrangement, the client (you) makes a sale, delivers the product or service and generates an invoice. The factor (the funding source) buys the right to collect on that invoice by agreeing to pay you the invoice's face value less a discount- typically 10 to 20 percent**. The factor pays 65 percent to 75 percent of the face value immediately and forwards the remainder (less the discount) when your customer pays.

Because factors extend credit, not to their clients but their clients' customers, they are more concerned about the customers' ability to pay than the client's financial status. That means a company with creditworthy customers may be able to factor even if it can't qualify for a loan.

Factoring is not a loan; it does not create a liability on the balance sheet or encumber assets. It is the sale of an asset--in this case, the invoice. And while factoring is considered one of the most expensive forms of financing, that's not always true. Yes, when you compare the discount rate factors charge against the interest rate banks charge, factoring costs more. But if you can't qualify for a loan, it doesn't matter what the interest rate is. Factors also provide services banks do not: They typically take over a significant portion of the accounting work for their clients, help with credit checks, and generate financial reports to let you know where you stand.

What are the functions of the factoring company?

- Assume the credit risk.
- Assume currency risk (if the invoice is in foreign currency).
- Perform collection management.
- Make effective recovery of the claim and advise your own insurer.
- Advise customers about the financial health of borrowers (debtors).
