Debtor Finance
Improve Cash Flow and Accelerate Revenue

Advance funds on accounts receivable before the invoice due date.

Debtor Finance offers a simple solution to manage working capital effectively without having to take on additional debt or extend lines of credit. It enables you to alleviate cash flow problems using your debtor’s book to secure advanced payments on your invoices.

We offer a specialised invoice discounting solution using your current sales to boost cash-flow.

Invoice discounting and factoring are methods of short-term financing that describe borrowing against your outstanding invoices. Factoring typically involves “selling” your receivables, whereas invoice discounting allows you to use accounts receivable as collateral for a loan.

Our tailored invoice discounting solution provides a convenient way to access funding at a fixed fee, with no additional upfront charges.

Benefits of Invoice Discounting / Debtor Finance

There are many advantages of debtor finance using invoice discounting:

  • Manage working capital effectively. Gain access funds when you need a capital injection.
  • Relieve cash flow shortages caused by offering payment terms or where customers are slow to pay.
  • Allows your business more negotiating power to attain better settlement discounts from creditors as cash flow is no longer a problem.
  • Flexibility to offer attractive trading terms without hampering business cash flow.

Getting Started With Debtor Finance through Transaction Capital Business Solutions

Our process

  • Your business concludes a sale and delivers the goods or service.

What is debtor finance and how does it work?

Debtor financing is a form of asset-backed finance where your debtor’s book (accounts receivable) is used as collateral. You receive the cash owed on issued invoices ahead of their due date, minus the financer’s fee.

Though often used interchangeably, invoice discounting and factoring are forms of debtor finance. The distinction is usually drawn between the associated costs, who remains in control of the debtor’s book, and whether or not the financer is responsible for collecting monies owed your debtors.

Our solution offers the affordability of invoice discounting and the convenience of handling collections from your debtors. Your business receives the cash-owed on outstanding invoices ahead of their due date, using your accounts receivable as a security for the loan.
