Factoring rapidly growing Accountancy Practice, helped by firstfactoruk.com

The client is a medium-sized firm of accountants and taxation planning consultants based in the North. The senior partners decided that Invoice Discounting would be the most appropriate method of raising working capital finance, as it provides the flexibility and headroom necessary to enable rapid growth.

On our recommendation, we introduced them to two potential Invoice Discounting lenders. One of these was selected to structure and deliver a £500,000 Confidential Invoice Discounting facility.

The Managing Partner commented:

“Both lenders introduced by www.firstfactoruk.com offered similar Invoice Discounting terms and pricing. However there were fundamental considerations that set one apart. As we deal with people on a daily basis its important that we ‘gel’ with those who supply our services, and get on with them personally. Both the sales director and relationship manager of one of the two companies showed they understood the Factoring and Invoice Discounting market exceptionally well, and we felt comfortable that we would work well together. The deciding factor was that the chosen Invoice Discounting company had the ability to react more quickly to changing requirements because it had shorter lines of communication, meaning decisions are made more nimbly, plus the fact we got on very well personally, all of which gives us confidence in their ability to provide a sustainable Invoice Discounting service for the foreseeable future. We need to have confidence in their ability to provide us with this continuity of service in these challenging economic times, and be supportive of our plans for the business in the future.

The new Invoice Discounting facilities were put in place in February and since then we have been very pleased with the service levels and the accessibility of information online. We have a good relationship with the Invoice Discounting providers Operations team and we can always pick up the phone and talk to them. They have also proved to be accommodating about short-term unexpected events and this flexibility has been extremely helpful.

We are delighted with the independent service offered by www.firstfactoruk.com and highly recommend them as professional, courteous and knowledgeable of the Factoring and Invoice Discounting market, and an ideal partner with which to save time when seeking a new provider of Factoring and Invoice Discounting services. “

Factoring & Invoice Discounting for Construction Sector

Trading conditions remain undeniably tough for businesses operating within the construction industry, as highlighted by a slight 0.5 per cent drop in output during the final quarter of 2011.

One of our Factoring and Invoice Discounting Partners has been actively working with firms in the construction sector for many years and advances more than £30 million every year to a variety of medium and large contractors.

We recently approached one of our Factoring and Invoice Discounting Partners to refinance a sub-contractor customer who is a leading player within several regional markets with a strong reputation for delivering on its contract commitments. However to its detriment, its bank had categorised it as ‘higher risk’ solely because of the sector in which it operates.

Our Factoring and Invoice Discounting Partner needed to take into account circumstances including the diverse nature of its work streams as the firm works for both house builders and a variety of contractors, and the fact it operates under multiple and varying types of contract. The correct funding solution needed to be carefully thought through.

The Factoring and Invoice Discounting Partner utilised their own expert advisors to gain a thorough understanding of how the customer’s business worked to ensure the right funding package was implemented, whilst also working with a leading niche bank provider to refinance the firm’s wider bank facilities. This successful partnership ensured the business had a firm funding platform for growth and is now looking forward to meeting its ambitious aspirations for future expansion.

www.firstfactoruk.com works with specific Partners who specialise in bespoke Factoring and Invoice Discounting solutions to the construction sector and that form of finance offering is available to sub-contractors that operate under most forms of construction industry contracts.

Companies with turnover of up to £50m, and requirements up to £5m can be assured of the best match to the most appropriate funder via www.firstfactoruk.com!
