Factoring allows a company to get cash much faster than it would if it waited to be paid on its invoices and even faster than if its customer fails to pay within terms.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 13, 2018
Many companies, and most of any size, use borrowed funds as part of their capital structure. Depending on the nature of the business, its size, time in business, whether it has adequate collateral, and other factors, a business has myriad options when borrowing funds. This BUSINESS BORROWING BASICS 2018 Financial Poise webinar series provides a guided tour of the various borrowing options available to businesses, from both a business and legal perspective. Major topics covered include asset-based lending, P/O Finance, Factoring, Merchant Cash Advances, and Market Place Lending / Fintech. Learn the advantages and disadvantages of each, tricks of the trade when negotiating these arrangements, and more!
The fourth episode of the BUSINESS BORROWING BASICS 2018 series is Factoring, premiering on April 18th at 2:00 PM CST (Register Here), and features Moderator Jonathan Friedland of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. He is joined by Paul Clinkscales of Aesir Media Group, Harvey Gross of New York Institute of Credit, and Avi Levine of Star Funding, Inc. to discuss factoring.
A simple way to think about factoring is to think of it as a company selling its invoices or accounts receivable (A/R) to a third party. It is not that simple, however, thus the purpose of this webinar.
A factor makes a profit by buying A/R for less than 100% of its face amount. Companies that transact with factors are often cash-strapped. A factor will typically advance most of an invoice amount – usually between 70% - 90%. When the invoice is paid, the factor will remit the balance the company, less a transaction fee. This arrangement allows a company to get cash much faster than it would if it waited to be paid pursuant to the terms of its invoices (i.e. often 30 days) and even faster if its customer fails to pay within terms. This webinar discusses various common types of factoring arrangements; how to negotiate a factoring agreement; and alternatives to consider before deciding to factor.
