How Factoring Works
Factoring or (accounts receivable finance) is an effective financial tool that helps startups and small business meet payroll, purchase equipment and fuel business growth. Even though factoring is an established and common financial tool, we've discovered that many businesses still seek out an explanation of how factoring actually works. Below, we've broken down the typical nuts-and-bolts summation of how factoring works.
History of Invoice Factoring
Factoring's origins lie in the financing of trade, particularly international trade. Factoring Companies were in fact a part of business life in England prior to 1400, and then came to America with the Pilgrims, around 1620. Invoice Factoring appears to be closely related to early merchant banking activities. The latter however evolved by extension to non-trade related financing such as sovereign debt. Like all financial instruments, Account Receivable Factoring evolved over centuries. This was driven by changes in the organization of companies; technology, particularly air travel and non-face to face communications technologies starting with the telegraph, followed by the telephone and then computers. These also drove and were driven by modifications of the common law framework in England and the United States.
Originally Factoring Companies took physical possession of the goods, provided cash advances to the producer, financed the credit extended to the buyer and insured the credit strength of the buyer. By the twentieth century in the United States the use of a Factoring Company was still the predominant form of financing working capital for the then high growth rate textile industry. In part this occurred because of the structure of the US banking system with its myriad of small banks and consequent limitations on the amount that could be advanced prudently by any one of them to a firm.
Today Accounts Receivable Factoring Companies are still dealt with the task of advancing funds to smaller to mid sized rapidly growing firms who sell to larger more creditworthy organizations. While almost never taking possession of the goods sold, Factoring Companies offer various combinations of money and supportive services when advancing funds.
Why use a Factoring Company?
Factoring Accounts Receivables is a method used by some firms to obtain cash. Certain companies factor accounts when the available cash balance held by the firm is insufficient to meet current obligations and accommodate its other cash needs, such as new orders or contracts; in other industries, however, such as textiles, Oil & Gas and Trucking, for example, financially sound companies factor their accounts simply because this is the historic method of finance. The use of a Factoring Company to obtain the cash needed to accommodate a firms immediate cash needs will allow the firm to maintain a smaller ongoing cash balance. By reducing the size of its cash balances, more money is made available for investment in the firms growth. Accounts Receivable Factoring is also used as a financial instrument to provide better cash flow control especially if a company currently has a lot of Accounts Receivables with different credit terms to manage. A company sells its invoices at a discount to their face value when it calculates that it will be better off using the proceeds to bolster its own growth than it would be by effectively functioning as its "customer's bank. Accordingly, Invoice Factoring occurs when the rate of return on the proceeds invested in production exceed the costs associated with Factoring the Receivables.

First, the Accounts Receivable Factoring Company places the emphasis on the value of the Receivables, the firms credit worthiness or fixed assets.
