Factoring in the UK
Firms in this industry specialise in short-term debt financing and invoice discounting. Factoring involves a company selling its accounts’ receivables or invoices to a third party as a means of accessing cash to finance further business activity without having to wait for their debtors to pay them. Operators generate revenue through factor fees, or the difference between the price paid for the invoice and money received from debtors.
