Factoring is an important form of short-term corporate financing in Germany alongside bank loans. It guarantees permanent liquidity and allows companies that do not have a comfortable equity base greater freedom of action and planning.

What is a typical situation for factoring?

  • An insufficient current account line
  • Long payment terms
  • Sluggish payment by customers or
  • A total loss of receivables

have a negative impact on liquidity. In this situation, factoring can be the right financing solution:

Factoring companies purchase receivables and

  • Pay the invoice amount immediately the next day – no waiting for the customer to pay
  • Bear the default risk 100 percent – you always receive the full invoice amount
  • Take over the accounts receivable management/ arrears billing if desired

Factoring can pay off even with a good credit rating:

  • The rating at the bank improves due to balance sheet contraction
  • Financial leeway to win customers with long payment terms
  • Financial leeway to purchase goods or vehicles, for example, quickly and flexibly
  • Subcontractors/carriers can be paid more quickly and thus bind them to the company
