Factoring is a practice whereby you sell your receivables for a discount before they are due. Factoring has been heavily used in some industries, such as the garment industry, and less in others. Today entrepreneurial factoring companies are willing to buy creditworthy receivables from just about any industry.

Factoring is a relatively expensive means of obtaining financing. You are paying for the cost of the capital, the extra risk including bad debt, and the paperwork factoring requires. If you can finance your business through other sources, particularly the more traditional ones, you will certainly save money.

However, factoring can be veru welcome to a growing business, especially one that cannot obtain the necessary capital through traditional borrowing.
