What is Invoice Finance?


Finance solutions for business problems

Invoice Finance is a form of business lending where the Invoice Finance Provider purchases, at a discount, invoices issued by businesses on credit terms to their customers. It is also known as Supply Chain Finance, a collective term for various types of Invoice Finance, including: invoice discounting, selective invoice discounting, invoice factoring and spot factoring among others.

Lengthy payment terms and late payment of invoices is a common problem for many businesses which can cause an imbalance to cashflow.

Invoice Finance enables businesses to get paid earlier on invoices they have issued, and therefore improve cashflow.
