How does Trade Invoice Finance Work?

Trade invoice finance is there to support UK businesses who import/export around the UK or globally. Essentially it still operates as a traditional invoice finance facility would be having the ability to pay your supplier quicker and trade with more business’s. The invoice financier will pay the supplier on the business’s behalf. This allows the business to continue trading and use these funds as cash flow. Once the business raises an invoice to the customer, they receive an agreed advance on the invoice up to 85% and then the remaining balance received once the invoice is paid. There are a few additional fundamental added bonuses with trade finance. These are that commonly the invoicing is insured so you don’t lose out. Also, import taxes can be paid keeping it simple and straight forward.

Who uses Trade Invoice Finance?

Business’s all over the UK who import or export across the world currently and can potentially take advantage of these invoice finance facilities. Manufacturing, food and drink industry and the clothing industry all are ideal for cash flow support facilities such as this. Having finished goods which are insured whilst being transported by air, rail or sea is crucial for the business applying.
