What is Export Factoring?

When your business exports goods or services, the payment terms on your invoices can span over a lengthy period, which can cause cash flow issues due to the up-front costs needed for producing and delivering these goods.

Export factoring helps release the cash from these cross-border trade invoices that would otherwise be tied-up until the payment due date.

This specialist finance solution allows businesses to grow and increase trade.

How does Export Factoring work?

When you send an invoice to your overseas customer, you also send a copy of the invoice to the bank or financial services provider, such as Bibby Financial Services, that is offering the export factoring facility.

They will send you up to 80% of the invoice value, and if with Bibby Financial Services, then this is sent within 24 hours.

The bank or financial services provider will then collect the payment on your behalf and when payment has been received you will be sent the remaining balance minus any agreed fees.
