Choose the right factoring partner

Selecting the best factoring company is an important decision for your company. Evaluate each partner carefully through your due diligence process. And consider asking the following questions.

1. How long have they been in business?

You will usually be better served by a company that has been around for a few years and is operated by seasoned managers. Longevity shows that they can manage their factoring portfolio in different economic environments.

2. Are they familiar with your industry?

Factoring companies can usually work with clients in most industries. However, some specialise in certain industries. You will usually be better served by a factoring company that specializes in your industry.

Note: There are several specialist factoring companies that can work with Manitoba’s oilfield services and transportation industries.
