One of the main reasons truckers choose factoring as their favorite financing option is to have fast cash to fund their operations, but also their growth. This service allows your company to access your operations' payment in record time compared to the deadlines established in each invoice.
Factoring is a funding service in which you sell to a specialized company, called a factor, the invoices you have issued to your clients with extended payment terms. This way, funds that could take 30 days or even more will immediately reach your hands.
Thereby, you will always have the necessary resources to keep your operations up to date, efficiently assuming daily expenses, and allowing decision-making focused on investment and growth. And you will not need to apply for a bank loan or have your credit checked. The evaluation of your capacity is based on your clients' creditworthiness and not on your own's.
However, when you choose to factor, you need to stay focused on your growth goals. Daily activities, management of your operation, and the conditions offered by your factoring company can sometimes get in the way. That is why we present a simple checklist to verify how to get the most out of factoring, such as enhancing your company's expansion.
Have clarity about the real cost of your factoring service
The rate that your factor charges for funding your invoices in advance can be susceptible to many variations. Although you will negotiate this value with your factor before signing a contract, additional charges may increase the agreed percentage, meaning you won't get the benefits you expect from factoring. At Summar, we guarantee you'll never have to pay hidden fees, and you'll know your rate from the beginning.
Choose non-recourse factoring options
Non-recourse factoring is a modality in which you do not have to worry about your invoices' collection processes. If your debtor does not pay the factor, you will not have to return the money you received in advance, given certain conditions. While your fee may be higher, you can guarantee your cash flow in most cases. However, with Summar, you can be even safer. We developed an unbeatable credit guarantee at no additional cost, which will allow you to always count on your money. We promise never to charge you back if your client does not pay the invoice for reasons beyond your control, without conditions nor time limits.
