How Subcontractors Can Leverage Client Invoices
As a subcontractor, you are typically waiting to be paid until other people finish a specific task on a project. This can cause painful delays in getting invoices paid, making meeting your accounts payable obligations difficult. However, you may be able to leverage client invoices by taking advantage of factoring.
Subcontractors often face challenges taking on large jobs because they lack the needed capital to purchase materials. This can be a significant issue as this challenge can stifle growth. However, if you are working with a contractor who has a bond in place to secure the completion of the project, you could leverage client invoices.
Cash Flow Improvement by Factoring Client Invoices
One of the challenges many subcontractors face when they are bidding on jobs is having the cash available to secure the materials necessary. This can be problematic when you are trying to grow your company by bidding on larger jobs. Because banks and other financial institutions are reluctant to make loans to a subcontractor, you may not know where to turn. Factoring client invoices can be the right solution.
When you secure a job, your contractor likely had to place a deposit and a bond with their client. The result is the contractor is guaranteeing completion of the project, as well as guaranteeing payment for your portion of the work. You can leverage this by using spot factoring — selling your invoice to a factoring company.
