Invoice financing with Proper Finance

Did you know that Proper Finance works with a number of high-profile, reputable invoice lenders across the UK?

We work with the award-winning Funding Invoice, a company specialising in invoice finance and factoring. This funding option can help to boost businesses’ cash flow, as the lenders effectively purchase an unpaid invoice from your firm and provide you with a percentage of this money upfront. The rest is then received once the invoice has been paid in full by your client, with the invoice finance lender retaining some of this invoice value in exchange for providing the money upfront.

Invoice financing options with Proper Finance

It is important to note that there are two main categories of invoice financing to choose from, and the one you choose will likely depend on the individual needs of your company. Proper Finance works with trusted invoice lenders who provide the following funding options:

  • Invoice factoring: where the invoice finance lenders purchasing your outstanding invoices from you and then collects these invoices directly from your customers
  • Invoice discounting: the lenders provide you with the money on the invoice, and this amount is then repaid once your invoice has been paid to you by the customer.
