Wholesale finance (referred to as ‘wholesale factoring’) is a popular way for UK SME wholesalers to release the cash tied up in raised, unpaid customer invoices by selling your receivables to a factoring company at a discounted rate - up to 95% of the value. Not only can this create a smoother cash flow cycle, but it can also make your business operate and trade more effectively.
As a wholesaler, you’ll always be looking for new ways to remain competitive. From balancing razor-thin margins to rising overheads, and all this while trying to ensure you can pay your staff, warehouse costs, buy new stock and other necessary supplies and expenditure.
When you’ve got money locked up in unpaid invoices, cash flow can turn your business on its head quickly. With some clients like online stores, high street retailers, supermarkets and department stores enforcing strict 30, 60, 90, 120 days or longer credit terms, dreaming of healthy cash flow might seem a world away.
That’s where wholesale finance can lend a helping hand.
Invoice finance lets you release up to 95% of the cash tied up in your unpaid invoices in as little as 24 hours. Equipped with working capital, you’re free to spend your money as you please - whether it’s paying staff wages, finding new opportunities, or increasing your stock levels. Healthy cash flow will help your business run smoother.
In addition to being able to sell one invoice, multiple invoices or your entire sales ledger to release cash, you can also offload your credit control process to the provider and let them manage it on your behalf. Free up your time and wave goodbye to chasing clients for payments with invoice factoring.
If you’d prefer to keep control of your invoice chasing and protect your key working relationships, you can opt for invoice discounting. This keeps it 100% confidential, so your clients won’t know you’re utilising a funding facility and that you’re borrowing against their invoices.
In addition to invoice finance, we can also provide your business with a Trade finance solution that helps bridge the gap between paying your suppliers for imported domestic or overseas goods, and being paid by your customers.
Did you know? A recent report from Statista has estimated that the turnover of the UK’s wholesale trade industry was £863.1 billion in 2019.
