So, What Exactly is Factoring?
Cash flow is vital to the success of many businesses. It’s especially important for small businesses, new businesses, and rapidly growing businesses. Cash flow concerns are exactly where United Capital Funding comes into the picture. A commercial factoring arrangement with UC Funding is a type of financial transaction in which we turn your accounts receivables owed by another business or government entity into working capital. Freeing up your capital means you can continue to seek new clients for your B2B (business-to-business) and B2G (business-to-government) business, rather than worrying about cash flow problems.
How Does It Work?
Although factoring may sound convoluted and technical, we guarantee that it is a hassle-free process. No in-depth financial knowledge is required! Here are the basic steps to the commercial factoring arrangement process for active clients (learn more about our application process here)
- Provide a copy of your invoice to United Capital Funding.
- United Capital Funding verifies the invoice with your customer, then pays you 80-90% of the invoice (advance) in cash.
- United Capital Funding acts as your accounts receivables department and services the invoice.
- Once your client pays 100% of the invoice to United Capital Funding, United Capital Funding pays you the 10-20% balance less a small professional fee (reserve).
