Invoice funding for consultancies

When funding consultant businesses, you need to be aware of your own business cycle and the conditions each option comes with – from a government grant to invoice funding. Our invoice financing solution enables businesses like yours to access immediate cash flow. To do so, you simply leverage the value of your outstanding invoices.

That means, instead of fighting problems on two ends, you can benefit from the capital you already earned. All you have to do is pass these invoices on to us.

What is invoice financing?

With invoice financing, sometimes referred to as invoice discounting or accounts receivable financing, you as a business owner borrow money against your outstanding invoices value at a financial institution. Once the client pays, you can repay the loan plus service fees and interest rates. This gives you some flexibility while still leaving you in charge of collecting payments, meaning your customers will only interact with you.

What is invoice factoring?

When you use invoice factoring, you basically sell outstanding invoices for services you’ve already delivered to a financial institution at a discounted rate. However, compared to invoice financing, you also hand over the collection process, which requires the financing institution to run a quick risk assessment. In turn, this institution gives you an advance on the money you’re owed, thus extracting value from your invoices that you otherwise couldn’t access. With Sonovate, you can access up to 100% of your invoice value within 24 hours.

“We evaluated a number of options. Sonovate offered the best deal in terms of rates. It was also possible to get funding when we only had one client. Other providers might have struggled with concentration risk, but Sonovate wasn’t bothered about that. Overall, the funding conditions were the best on the market at the time.”
