Export Factoring

Export Factoring allows your business to release cash against your overseas customer invoices.

It’s not a loan, but a way of accessing the cash you’re owed by overseas customers more quickly, helping you manage your cash flow and continue to grow your business.

Why Export Factoring could be good for your business

Export Factoring is ideal for businesses that have customers overseas who have extended payment terms, or businesses that have issues collecting payments from abroad.

Not being paid on time can seriously impact the cash flow position of your business, leaving you short to pay your own employees or suppliers, maybe even preventing you from investing in new opportunities for your business.

Accessing Export Factoring services can help you overcome funding challenges without resorting to borrowing, extending credit or providing additional security to the banks.

We help our clients overcome the many challenges of selling goods or services abroad. Our specialists are all experts in Export Factoring and we have over 35 years’ experience supporting businesses.

Bibby Financial Services operates in over 40 locations, across 14 countries throughout Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
