Questions you need to ask before committing to a new Factor finance company

You’ve decided to start Factoring your accounts receivable invoices for immediate cash. What are some of the questions you need to ask before committing to your new Factor finance company?

  1. “How long does your contract require me to work with you?”
  2. “Can I leave before the contract maturity date?”
  3. “How much will it cost me to end our contract before the maturity date?”
  4. “If termination fees, how do you calculate those fees?”

Regardless of what the account executive tells you over the phone, make sure and double check the contract. Look for a section called “Term” or “Termination”

TIP: A contract that has no specific length of time specified, that ties you to the Factor is in your best interest.

You need to decide if you want Non-recourse factoring. In our experience, non-recourse is the best. Simply put, if your customer doesn’t pay the Factor, the Factor can’t come after you for the money they’ve already advanced you; hence the term “non recourse”
