The Invoice Market, Australia’s fastest growing single invoice discounter, provides highly flexible cash flow funding solutions to businesses
What is single (‘no lock-in’) invoice funding?
Single invoice discounting, also referred to as ‘spot factoring’, is the sale of an asset – being a current unpaid invoice – to create immediate cash cow.
While the name implies the sale of just one invoice at a time, a business can elect to sell one, many or all their invoices. They are in complete control of when to raise working capital, how much capital and against
Single invoice discounting is distinctly different from full facility factoring, which locks the business into a contract (typically 12 months) and requires the business to factor every invoice raised by the business, across its entire debtor book.
Why do businesses use cash flow funding?
Businesses use invoice funding to release cash cow from their debtor ledger, rather than waiting for their customers to pay them. Invoice funding is on revenue account and therefore accounted for through the Profit and Loss of the business, whereas factoring facilities are a debt facility and are a liability on the Balance Sheet.
Invoice funding provides greater flexibility and enables you to sell a single or a bundle of invoices when needed, without entering into lengthy and potentially expensive contracts.

Additional income stream for finance brokers
Many finance brokers are looking to diversify their income stream into alternative offerings, and invoice funding is a perfect fit. Debtor finance is now accepted as a common place business financing tool for companies. In fact, many business owners look at it as the smart alternative to a debt facility.
Furthermore, it may assist a broker to write more home loans. Let me explain: Business owners have mortgages and employ staff who also have mortgages. By assisting a business owner with their cash cow funding, the broker becomes a valued consultant to the business and then has the opportunity to assist the business and staff with other services.
The Invoice Market pays attractive upfront and trail brokerage for all invoices funded from their referral.
