Remember the stories we used to hear when we were kids? Creatures like Bigfoot or stories like Hercules were myths we believed… at least for a little bit. But even though we’re older now and know better, there’s still the occasional myth that we tend to believe. Specifically with real-world actualities. And — just like with any industry—there are plenty of myths associated with factoring. So, our team is here to help you out to discover the truth about factoring really by busting some myths. Discover everything you need to know about factoring finance with United Capital Funding.
Myth #1: Factoring Is Only Meant For Start-Ups
Because factoring is a great strategy for start-ups, many seem to think that you can only factor your finances if your business is small. But that’s just not true! In actuality, a good number of our clients are large and financially sound. Perhaps they just enjoy the convenience and ease of factoring their receivables!
Myth #2: My Contract Will Be Something I Cannot Control
Again, not true! When you make an agreement with UCF, we go out of our way to ensure your plan is exactly as you want it to be. After you apply, our specialists will get in touch to begin an agreement that both parties are happy with. Factor your finances for as long or short as you wish.
Additionally, you don’t have to factor all of your invoices, either. Factor as many as you like for as long as you prefer! Are you ready to begin your UCF journey?
Myth #3: Factoring And Loans Are The Same
While similar, factoring is not the same as a traditional bank loan. Specifically, in the way bank loans’ interest keeps you hostage for much longer than you deserve. Loan expenses add to your already long list of bills and can impact your business if money becomes delayed.
But when you factor as a client of UCF, you can get the money as soon as the invoice is verified. And it’s all your own money, minus our small fee and the ACH/wire fee from your bank. Now, that sounds much better than a stuffy loan, don’t you think?
Myth #4: Factoring Is Going To Hurt My Relationship With My Clients
Our audience tends to think factoring shows others that they’re desperate for money, or that we’re sent to shake down customers for payment. But the truth is, many people already know about invoice factoring. And for those who don’t, we’re more than happy to help them understand.
As we said before, many of our clients are financially stable. Factoring is an option for anyone who would like that stability. When you work with us, we operate as your AR Department. Even though your clients are dropping their payment off at our secure lockbox facility, they’re still paying the invoice that you sent them, in its entirety.
