Confidential Invoice Discounting

Our Confidential Invoice Discounting (CID) facility helps to improve cashflow whilst your customers are unaware of any third party involvement. CID provides an effective means of releasing money tied up in your sales ledger and supporting strategic growth.

Is it right for you?

  • You are a UK-based  business forecasting credit sales of at least £500,000 per year and you have a spread of debtors
  • You sell goods or services on normal credit terms with no stage payments
  • You will be using a computerised credit control system
  • Suitable industries include manufacturers, wholesalers, transport firms, employment agencies, and providers of business services

How it supports your business

  • Funding advanced up to 90% of the value of approved invoices
  • Funds can be advanced against new invoices by the next working day
  • Bad debt protection available1 
  • Provides certainty of funding; as sales grow so does the amount of funding available to your business
  • You maintain responsibility for your sales ledger, credit control and collection of outstanding invoices, meaning finance is undisclosed to your customers
  • Available in multiple currencies
  • Online access to your sales ledger information and electronic payment requests
