Selective invoice finance

Release funds from specific invoices to boost cash flow

Selective invoice finance enables you to unlock the value in unpaid invoices. It will free you up to stop chasing late payments and help you to reinvest in growth.

Frequently asked questions

1. What is selective invoice finance?

Selective invoice finance helps businesses to unlock the potential of unpaid invoices, without requiring them to sell their whole sales ledger. With selective invoice finance, a company can choose which invoices it funds and when, providing a more flexible and sometimes cheaper solution to freeing up working capital.

2. What are the benefits of selective invoice finance?

The flexibility of selective invoice finance means that businesses can often access a greater advance rate than is offered by traditional invoice factoring, because the company selects individual invoices or debtors, rather than requiring its whole sales ledger to be funded. It also gives firms more control over their cash flow, as they can sell individual invoices, or groups of invoices, depending on their working capital requirements.

We do not impose a minimum contract period or minimum income criteria and we do not restrict funding based on concentration, making our product more accessible than many similar options on the market.

3. What are other names for selective invoice finance?

Selective invoice finance is sometimes referred to as spot factoring, spot invoice finance or single invoice factoring, in reference to the flexibility of the facility. In certain markets, these terms are associated with slightly different products, where spot factoring or single invoice factoring refers to the funding of specific individual invoices and selective invoice finance refers to the funding of certain debtors.

Our selective invoice finance product gives businesses the flexibility to fund whatever proportion of invoices they choose, freeing up working capital and keeping them in control of their cash flow.

4. How does selective invoice finance work?

After you have completed our straightforward online onboarding process, we aim to respond with an offer within 24 hours. You then simply select the debtors you want to fund and upload the corresponding invoices to our online portal. We will validate the invoices and advance you up to 85% of the value, and as soon as we receive payment from your debtors, we will rebate the remaining percentage, minus our fee.

5. What is the difference between selective invoice finance and invoice factoring?

Traditionally, invoice factoring requires a business to sell its whole sales ledger to a third-party factoring company. This firm takes on the debt in its entirety, freeing up working capital for the business. However, this can be a more expensive way of funding invoices and it may not suit firms with seasonal cash fluctuations that do not need the funding year-round.

Selective invoice finance gives businesses the flexibility to fund individual invoices. Companies can select the invoices they want to be funded and decide when the funds are released, putting them in control of their cash flow.

6. What are the eligibility criteria for selective invoice finance?

You must have a UK limited company, with B2B invoices of more than £3,000 and payment terms between 0 and 120 days.
