Debt factoring involves selling your invoices to a third party. In return they will process the invoices and allow you to draw loans against the money owed to your business. Essentially, the factoring companies provide a debt collection and ledger management service.It is commonly used by businesses to improve cashflow but can also be used to reduce administration overheads.
