Cash Flow Management

Improve your business cash flow

Running your own business can be stressful enough without the worry of cash flow. When your sales are healthy, this can be a huge barrier to your continued success.

This is where factoring could help you…

Factoring makes available up to 90% against unpaid sales invoices (less a small service fee) with the remaining balance made available when your customers settle their outstanding invoices.

Business management can be a juggling act, managing staff, deliveries, negotiating with new and existing customers – all of which take management time. This precious time can be increased through the provision of professional credit management. Statements and reminder notices are sent to your customers as part of a factoring facility, in a format agreed with you at the outset.

Most factoring companies provide comprehensive electronic links, to ensure you are kept fully updated on who has settled their invoices and enabling you to draw down money when you require it.

New customers will probably play a large part in increasing your turnover. Without knowledge of their credit standing, this could turn the excitement of a new order into the disappointment of a bad debt. Credit reference information gathered by the factoring company can be shared ensuring that a sound decision can be made whether or not to extend credit to a new trading partner, or to increase credit to an existing customer.

About individual voluntary arrangements (IVAs)

If you're in debt, you'll need to take steps to sort it out. One option you may have open to you is to arrange an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA).

An IVA is an alternative to bankruptcy. It's a formal arrangement between you and your creditors, the people you owe money to. It allows you to pay back all or part of your debts over a fixed period of time, typically five years.

IVAs aren't suitable for everyone. They only cover certain types of debt. They are also only suitable for people who:

  1. have spare income of £100 or more a month
  2. owe money to two or more separate creditors. Debts owed to the same creditor don't count as separate debts
  3. are unable to stick to the original agreement to pay back the money they owe.
