Cash flow doesn’t always run smoothly. Sometimes customers are slow to pay. You’ve got a lot of invoices out, but not a lot of money has come in yet.
Invoice financing solves that problem. When you send out an invoice, we pay you part of the money within 24 hours. We pay the rest when the customer pays the debt, less any discount fees.
It gives you extra flexibility, making sure your cash flow doesn’t limit your business growth. It can save you money too – for example, if you get discounts by paying your suppliers early.

We offer 2 types of invoice financing – it depends on how much of the credit control process you want to handle yourself.
You do the chasing. 100% confidential, and great for established businesses with credit control systems in place.
We do the chasing. Great for new businesses, we’ll do the hard work of making sure your invoices get paid.
We can fund anyone from a start-up to a PLC – we don’t need your first year’s accounts.
A non-contractual debt is a debt that doesn’t have any clauses in the contract that mean the customer could claim back the money or not pay at all – for example, in the construction industry where someone is not happy with the completed work and doesn’t pay the full bill.
There are 2 types of fees.
