International Factoring Companies

International Factoring CompaniesUS exports are on the rise leading to increased opportunities for international factoring companies and brokers.

In January 2011 exports set a record 167.7 billion up 16% from a year ago and beating the prior high of 165.7 billion in July 2008, according to reports issued by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis on March 10, 2011.

Exporting improvements can be attributed to a variety of sources including:

  • Goods are more affordable to overseas buyers with a relatively weaker US dollar
  • Increased prosperity of developing countries and their growing middle class
  • Greater accessibility between US suppliers and foreign buyers facilitated by online interaction
  • Focus on doubling US exports within five years to stimulate economic growth and jobs

So how does this all apply to invoice factoring?

Increased trade equates to increased financing demand. For example, a US business sells parts to a foreign buyer. The goods are delivered and the invoice generated. It might take the foreign buyer 30-60 days to issue payment but the US business needs capital now to manufacture parts to fill another order. Factoring the accounts receivable provides immediate access to cash.

International factoring can work the other way around too. A foreign company may sell to a US buyer generating an invoice for the imported goods or services.

Factoring foreign accounts receivables comes with it own set of unique challenges.

First, overseas companies are likely to speak a different language…literally. The laws and paperwork for adequately securing and protecting the factoring company can also differ in another country.

Other details include the use of credit reporting companies with data on foreign creditors along with the issuance of credit insurance policies and letters of credit to improve the level of comfort for the factor.

When brokering international invoices it pays to work with factoring companies experienced in the nuances of overseas buyers and sellers. The 2011 Directory of Factoring Companies is a solid resource for identifying reliable businesses. Here is a highlight of one such company listed in the updated directory.

  2. Hi, I have a few questions concerning factoring. I have recently started an import~export company, exporting Italian fashion to USA and importing buffalo and cow hides to Europe. Italy primarily. I would like some information as to what would be the most cost effective way to factor the orders and insure them so I do not have to wait for payment from companies here in Italy. Thank you.
