How does debtor financing work?
Debtor financing is an umbrella term describing solutions that improve the cash flow of a business by financing its accounts receivable ledger. The two most common debtor financing solutions are invoice factoring and invoice discounting.
Both solutions finance your business by providing you with an advance on slow-paying invoices. The advance improves your cash flow, which allows you to operate your business more effectively. The advance ranges from 80% to 85% of the value of the invoices and is based on your industry, company size and other criteria.
Generally, invoice factoring is offered to smaller companies who also need credit control services. Invoices are financed and tracked individually. Invoice discounting, on the other hand, is offered as a funding-only facility. It’s available to larger companies who already have credit and collections controls in place.

Overdrafts vs. debtor finance
Cash flow shortages often occur because your business has to pay bills quickly, while your clients pay you slowly. An overdraft can help you solve this problem. However, overdrafts can be inflexible and have hard limits. Furthermore, they are often secured by property, which can create problems for some business owners.
Debtor financing also solves cash flow problems but provides a more flexible solution. Since the financing facility is tied to your sales, it can easily accommodate growth. This flexibility helps ensure you always have working capital to cover business expenses. To learn more, read “Overdrafts v. Debtor Finance“.
