What is Invoice Factoring?
Invoice Factoring is a type of debtor/invoice finance in which a business sells its accounts receivables ledger (invoices) to a third party (in this instance TIM) in return for receiving up to 90% of the invoice values in cash, with the balance to be received when your debtor pays (as per their normal 30 to 60+ days trading terms).
Invoice Factoring is commonly referred to as accounts receivable factoring, invoice factoring, invoice finance, debtor finance and even accounts receivable financing or invoice discounting.
The True Difference Between
Factoring and Invoice Discounting
Factoring and Invoice Discounting are both financial services that can release the funds tied up in your unpaid invoices.
Strictly speaking, the difference between Factoring and Invoice Discounting lies in who takes control of your account receivables ledger and responsibility for collecting the monies from your debtors.
With Factoring, the provider of the upfront funds takes the role of managing your
account receivables ledger, credit control and chasing customers for settlement of their invoices.
TIM does not do this.
With Invoice Discounting, provided by TIM your business retains full control of its own debtors ledger and you collect payment in the usual way.
