How Much Does Invoice Factoring Cost?
Unlike a business loan that involves a monthly payment based on an annualized interest rate, invoice factoring cost is priced per transaction. In a factoring transaction, your business sells its invoices to Business Finance Corporation at an agreed-upon discount from the face amount of the invoice. Typical factoring discounts range from 3%-5% for 30 days.
At Business Finance Corporation, an invoice that is not paid within 30 days will accrue daily fees at 1/30th of the factoring rate per day. For instance, if your factoring discount rate is 3½%, and the invoice does not pay within 30 days from the date we fund the invoice, the daily fee would be 1/30th of 3½ % or .1167% per day. On a $1,000 invoice, the amount would be $1.17 per day.
How Do We Calculate Discount Rates?
The factoring discount rate is determined by a number of variables, such as:
- Type of business you are in (for example, construction is more expensive than manufacturing)
- Number of monthly invoices to be factored
- Dollar amount of each invoice
- Credit quality of your clients and their payment history
- Other credit risks
In addition to the per transaction discount rate, Business Finance Corporation may charge an additional monthly fee on accounts that require specialized services or customized financing.
