Typical Factoring Agreement

First, your company will probably receive a letter of proposal (it`s not a contract) from the postman that contains some, but not all, terms and conditions, which can be included in the factoring agreement. This letter of proposal usually requires your signature and a down payment. The postman will then send you the proposed factoring documents, including the factoring agreement, personal guarantees (if the factor makes advances), a secretariat or management certificate (depending on whether your company is a limited liability company or company), a proposed communication to your clients that your company`s claims have been assigned to the factor, as well as various related documents and agreements. Billing fees also depend on the choice of a non-recourse remedy or factoring program. Non-recourse factoring poses a higher risk to the factoring company, so the costs are slightly higher. The origins of factoring lie in the financing of trade, particularly international trade. It is said that the factoring comes from the old Mesopotamian culture, with factoring rules that have been maintained in the Hammurabi Code. [22] Factoring is common in the construction industry due to long payment cycles, which can extend up to 120 days and beyond. However, the construction industry has risky features for factoring companies. Due to the risks and exposure of mechanics` instructions, the risk of «paid» conditions, the existence of progress notes, the use of deductions and exposure to business cycles, most «general» factoring companies avoid construction requirements altogether. This has created another niche of factoring companies specializing in construction requirements. [36] The spot calculation factor or the discounting of the single invoice is an alternative to the «whole ledger» and allows a company to account for a single invoice.

The additional flexibility for the business and the lack of predictable volumes and monthly minimums for factoring providers mean that cash transactions are generally paid for. Originally, the industry took possession of the goods, provided the producer with cash advances, financed the credit to the buyer and provided the buyer`s credit strength. [27] In England, the control gained over trade gave rise, in 1696, to an act of Parliament in order to mitigate the monopoly power of factors. With the development of large companies that have developed their own distributors, distribution channels and knowledge about the financial capacity of their customers, the need for factoring services has been redesigned and the sector has become more specialized. With technological advances, some billing providers have adapted to certain sectors. This often affects the additional services offered by the postman in order to better adapt the factoring service to the needs of the business. For example, a recruitment specialist who provides support under the wage factoring mechanism and back-office services; a wholesale or/distribution factor may not provide this additional service. These differences may affect the cost of the facility, the approach taken by the credit survey factor, the management services contained in the facility, and the maximum size of invoices that can be taken into account. When your business includes invoices, you will usually receive a significant percentage of the bill in advance, and the rest will be kept on reserve until your customers pay the bill. Even today, the factoring argument includes the financial task of continuing to finance small, fast-growing businesses that sell to larger, more creditworthy organizations.

While almost never in possession of the products sold, the factors offer different combinations of money and support services in promoting money. The cost of factoring is designed to put more money into your account, where it can do better.
