Invoice discounting

Release funds from your unpaid invoices the moment they are raised, while maintaining control over the collection of payments.

Key features

  • Invoice discounting is an alternative solution to traditional types of business finance.
  • It provides instant access to cash tied up in outstanding invoices.
  • It adapts with businesses as they change and grow, making it much more flexible than an overdraft or loan.  
  • You maintain control over the collection of payments, making the facility entirely confidential.
