How does accounts receivable financing work?

Accounts receivable financing, also called “factoring,” allows RTS International to purchase your company’s invoices and then provide an advance on the totals. We advance between 80% and 90% of a total invoice value, then we collect the full amount from your customer under normal payment terms. Once the invoice is paid in full, we fund the remaining percentage to your company, minus a fee for assuming the collections risk.

Is accounts receivable financing similar to a bank loan?

No. Accounts receivable financing is not a bank loan and you are not assuming any debt.

The emphasis is on your customers’ invoices, not on your balance sheet. Normally, funds are available much more quickly than with bank loans, usually within 24 hours or less. Accounts receivable financing, or factoring, provides a steady flow of funds, whereas bank loans are usually one lump sum. We assist with the credit and collection functions, which improve your company’s balance sheet. While bank loans add to your debt, accounts receivable financing converts one asset (receivables) into another asset (cash). In many cases, bank loans can be difficult to attain and are limited by your balance sheet.

What is the difference between recourse and non-recourse accounts receivable financing?

Recourse means the client ultimately takes the responsibility for the payment of the invoice.

Non-recourse accounts receivable financing allows companies to sell their invoices to RTS International, and we assume all of the credit risks for the collection of the invoice.

Top

What about fees or contract terms?

There are no hidden fees in our agreement. Besides the factoring fee, the only other fee is an ancillary fee. Factoring fees are determined by monthly volume, creditworthiness of the buyers and other conditions. Most contracts have an annual renewal fee.

Top

Is credit insurance needed on debtors?

Typically insurance is not necessary, but may be required in specific circumstances.

How long does it take to receive the first funding?

The initial funding process takes between one and three business days after RTS International receives the signed contract. After the initial funding, your company can receive funds within 24 hours after receipt of invoices.
