Example scenario

How Invoice Finance works

With invoice finance we pay you against your approved unpaid sales ledger invoices - prepayment advances are made at an agreed percentage of their total value, typically 80-90%. As your customers pay, the non-prepaid element of the invoices is made available to you, less any agreed charges.  As the facility continues to run, additional funding is made available on all approved future sales, allowing you access to the cash flow required to run your business.
