Why Factors say YES when banks say NO

Have you ever heard this from a prospect; "Don't waste your time, I am not bankable?" Did you then wonder why a factor would ever consider funding a company that a bank would decline? If you have, believe me, you are not alone (I get asked this all the time). Let me see if I can help clear this up. Let me begin by defining a strong banking prospect: Prospect has been in business for a minimum of 2 years Prospect has audited financial statements reveal solid profit margins in the previous 12 month accounting period Prospect has steady revenue growth with no "Peaks or Valleys" Prospect's management team is strong with a proven track record of success in the industry Prospect has absolutely no bankruptcies or judgments in the … [Read more...]

What is Medical Factoring?

The term "medical factoring" can be interpreted several different ways but essentially it is factoring that deals exclusively with invoices that are "medical" in nature. For example, medical providers (such as doctors or those that sell medical supplies) may have to wait up to 90 days to get paid by an insurance company, HMO, or Medicare/Medicaid. These cash flow issues present the same challenges as traditional, non-medically related, companies. When medical providers utilize factoring they often receive their "advance" from the factor in as little as 24-48 hours.

We are often asked to comment on how a consultant can use a company's financial statements (Balance Sheets, Income Statements and invoice aging reports) to highlight the benefits of factoring their accounts receivables. Below, you will find those areas of the reports that you can concentrate on and how you can best use this information to improve your chances of closing the deal! Understanding the Balance Sheet from a Selling Perspective: Factoring simply turns one asset (Accounts Receivable) into another asset (Cash) - said another way. Factoring is "Off Balance Sheet" financing as you don't incur any liabilities when financing this way (nothing to balance). By reducing your potential liabilities, you will increase your equity … [Read more...]
