A detailed description on the benefits of payroll factoring and how you can overcome your payroll challenges.

The Payroll Challenge 

Have you ever thought… Can I meet my next payroll? 

 Making payroll can be difficult even for highly profitable businesses.  Long payment terms on customer contracts or starting a new large project can mean you have to scale up and recruit fast. In both cases, cash flow can quickly become tight. 

Business owners have to pay their workers every week or every other week – payroll cannot be skipped or delayed.  However, customers don’t always pay on time and even if they do, there is still a wait time of a month or two for the payment depending on the agreed to terms.  

Simply doing the math,  if you do payroll weekly and you offer your customers 30-day payment terms on your invoices, this means you have to keep enough money to cover 4 to 5 payrolls before you can get paid for the placements you recruited.

How Payroll Factoring Works

Payroll is one of, if not the biggest responsibility of a business owner. As a recruitment agency, you need to pay workers while waiting on your invoices to be paid by your clients. All while managing the day-to-day running of back-office administration. With Staffing Finance, you release the cash tied up in unpaid invoices by receiving a cash advance from your funder.

Step #1: Invoice your customers - Send us a copy

Step #2: We pay up to 92% of the value of your invoice

Step #3: We collect payment 

Step #4: We pay you any remaining balances - minus any agreed fees

Payroll Factoring allows your business to finance invoices and assets so you can make payroll for your employees. Simply put, you get the finances to ensure you make payroll, have more time to recruit talent and get the capital to invest in assets for growth.  

When should you consider Payroll Factoring?
