Three reasons you’re successful.
Because you’re a savvy business person, you likely know enough about accounts receivable financing, or ‘invoice factoring’, to know it can benefit your company’s cash flow.
Even the best customers can be slow to pay invoices.
Seasonal sales create financial peaks and valleys. These cash flow imbalances cause a legion of accounts receivable management migraines. You certainly don’t need those on a personal level…and neither does your business.
Fortunately, there’s a smart solution to those business cash flow challenges. Accounts receivable factoring helps stabilize your cash flow, and can even create an environment of growth for your business…and that's exactly where you want to be.
Strict financial regulations and tight underwriting standards can make it difficult for businesses to get necessary, timely financing from banks. Often, businesses need an alternate source of working capital in order to grow or simply pay bills.
Ozarks Capital Funding offers a range of capital financing options, including accounts receivable factoring, medical provider financing, freight bill funding, and more.

WHAT IS ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE FINANCING?
The idea behind accounts receivable financing is a simple one:
sell your outstanding invoices for immediate cash, minus a fee.
This invoice factoring is not about lending.
It’s neither a loan product nor a line of credit.
In fact, AR financing has nothing to do with your company’s credit.
It has no effect on your balance sheet…and that’s a good thing in the eyes of your bank.
AR financing incurs no debt.
Your company receives a cash advance upon the sale of your specified invoices.
You then decide how best to use that shiny, new working capital.
Keep the business cycle moving forward?
Stay up-to-date—or ahead of—your expenses? Expand your technology?
It’s all possible, and it’s all your call.
Invoice factoring is flexible and responsive.
Funds are typically wired into your bank account within 24 hours,
so you can put that cash flow to work immediately.
Is accounts receivable financing a smart solution for your business?
Is it right for you? You’re the expert.
Some typical considerations may include:
• You have pending contracts, but lack the working capital to get the project moving forward
• Your company is growing quickly, but your bank has capped your credit line
• Your cash flow is often a trickle, having to wait 30-90 days for payments from your customers
The very need for factoring can be a sign of strong growth. Accounts receivable financing can keep your business workflow manageable while some of those kinks get worked-out.
Take a look at the OCF quick reference guide to see how invoice factoring can work for your business.
Is invoice factoring a loan?
No, factoring is not a loan so it doesn’t negatively affect your company’s balance sheet.
Is it for everyone?
Factoring is designed to help bolster cash flow for those businesses that only sell on credit to other companies. The business should also have a reasonable profit margin to absorb the factoring fee. It’s your call. You know your business better than anyone. It’s certainly worth your time to contact us for more information.
Does this affect my credit?
No, since factoring is not a loan, it will not affect your business or personal credit.

Pricing for factoring depends on many variables, including the type of industry, advance rate, and the creditworthiness of your customers. OCF will provide you a free, no-obligation quote on your factoring needs. Our rates are competitive with others in the industry. Contact us to get started.
How long is the process?
