What is Receivables Financing?An easy to understand guideline
Receivables financing (also known as invoice factoring or invoice financing) is a type of financial arrangement in which a company sells its outstanding invoices to financial institutions. Through receivables financing, businesses can receive payment earlier to support their business operations to keep the cash flow up when buyers are slow payers or have extended payment terms.
Why Receivables Financing is Important?
Doing business with positive income are the shared goals of all commercial entities. However, having lots of accounts receivable may be an issue. Accounts receivable is classified as asset in financial report but also refers to outstanding balance to be collected in the future. Some companies perceive accounts receivable as a burden as they cannot convert to cash immediately. What is more, accounts receivable may finally turn into bad debt. As such, some companies may opt for receivables financing to gain instant cash flows for better liquidity and risk dilution.
Key steps of receivables financing are illustrated as below:
- Seller sells goods to buyer
- Seller issues an invoice to buyer
- Seller sells the outstanding invoice to financial company/factor
- Financial company/Factor pays a proportionate value of the invoice to seller
- Buyer settle the outstanding invoice payment
- Financial company/Factor sends the remaining balance to seller.
Let’s take a look at the below case for a better illustration of the concept:
The following example illustrates how receivables financing works:
ABC firm sells shower equipment to hotels and club houses. ABC firm receives a purchase order from XYZ Hotel. XYZ Hotel requests for the shower equipment to be delivered within 1 month and it can only pay for the invoice in the next 3 months after the delivery. Under this payment term, ABC firm might face shortage in capital and jeopardising of the firm’s operation. In this case, ABC firm sells its invoice to FundPark to obtain quick cash flow for business growth.
