Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) October 11, 2009
The Interface Financial Group (IFG), North America's largest alternative funding source for small business, today announced its new office in Singapore where the company will gain entry to the fast-growing Asian markets. IFG provides short-term financial resources including single invoice factoring to companies in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and now Asia.
"Singapore attracts global businesses and is seamlessly connected to almost every part of the world, so we are very pleased to add Singapore to our roster of offices specializing in invoice factoring," said George Shapiro, chief executive officer, The Interface Financial Group, Inc. "More than 7,000 multinational companies providing IFG with abundant prospects and opportunities." Singapore possesses strengths in key industries including banking and finance, information and communication technology, biomedical sciences, electronics and precision engineering, aviation, and more.
Accounts receivable factoring has been around for more than 4,000 years, while today IFG is finding that single invoice factoring is a popular new tactic allowing companies to factor one invoice at a time. Invoice factoring benefits businesses that do not get paid for 30 to 60 or 90 days by advancing up to 90 percent against invoices. IFG looks at the creditworthiness of the client's customers and can fund within as little as 24 hours. The company does not expect to buy 100 percent of a company's receivables, and there are no minimum or maximum sales volume requirements.
Bank loans involve two parties, while invoice factoring involves three parties, and while banks base their decisions on a company's credit worthiness, whereas factoring is based on the value of the receivables. Factoring is not a loan - it is the purchase of financial assets, or a company's receivables. IFG looks at the creditworthiness of a client's customers and once approved, pays within as little as 24 hours. IFG does not expect to buy 100 percent of a company's receivables, and there are no minimum or maximum sales volume requirements. IFG's professional rates are competitive because each client's circumstances vary, which may have an impact on the fees charged. The program allows choices of invoices to be factored, enabling customers to retain most of their money, while spending the minimum fees to guarantee adequate cash flow.
Factoring starts with due diligence that typically takes one to two business days, and after this has been completed the client is at liberty to offer invoices to IFG for purchase. Upon receipt of invoices, IFG checks the credit of the debtor named on the invoice and makes sure that the sale represented has been satisfactorily completed. Once this is done the debtor is advised of the purchase by IFG and the client receives their funding.
IFG's recent private label factoring products introduced by IFG include Export Factoring, providing factoring services for companies who export from the United States and Canada; P.O. Funding to finance purchase orders when a company receives a purchase order and needs to purchase supplies to fulfill the order; and Inventory Financing, a solution promoting a company's growth by funding then when they must expand and purchase inventory.
