We provide invoice factoring for many businesses in Alabama and can purchase their unpaid invoices for immediate cash.
Companies don't have to be forced to wait weeks or months for payments to arrive when they can have quick access to cash today. When you establish an account with 1st Commercial Credit, you will receive a considerable cash advance for your outstanding invoices.
This advance can vary and is determined by different factors, including the type of industry. The factoring company keeps a small percentage of the total invoice value considered the factoring fee. Fees are calculated based on several factors, including your client's creditworthiness and the length they take to pay.
When companies decide to work with an Alabama factoring company, these businesses agree to give them ownership of their invoices. The factoring company then will exchange fast cash for the unpaid invoices. Doing this also means they will acquire the responsibility and right to collect payment from your business customers. The notice of assignment is a document that communicates to your customers that there has been a change in invoice ownership. They will now be making payments to the factoring company.
Each company has its version of this document, but they all generally serve the same purpose. The notice of assignment has the following main components:
You will receive a copy of the Notice of Assignment also sent to your customers. You must be very involved in this matter because it will help make the process easier and smoother.
Even with a Notice of Assignment, your company might still receive payments from customers, which the factoring company has the right to charge.
It is essential that businesses stay on top and involved during the time this process takes. Companies might still be responsible for additional penalties and fees if customers do not make payments on time or if you deposit payments sent to the wrong account.
Action needs to be taken immediately from your part if needed. Understanding the language used in the notice of assignment, being aware of your customer’s responsiveness to the notice, and interfering if customers are not sending payments are your responsibility until the transition process is completed.
A factoring company (or accounts receivable factoring) converts invoices sold on credit terms for immediate working capital at a discount. It has become a simple, fast and easy way to access business cash flow. In comparison with a traditional bank loan, a company that factors receivables has a quicker approval process.
1st Commercial Credit is a factoring company that specializes in evaluating accounts receivable and can make a prompt approval decision. The documentation requirements are not as lengthy, and the main requirement is that an applicant has invoices for work or orders that have already been satisfied. It also helps to have creditworthy customers. As long as a business has been in operation, meets revenue requirements, and is free of liens or legal issues, approval is likelier.
Increase your business sales by taking advantage of our finance solutions for the automotive industry. 1st Commercial Credit is helping equipment manufacturers, sellers, and retail providers make it easy to buy products and services with a manageable monthly payment and a fast and simple application process. Whether you own a family-owned body shop, a franchise of a national auto repair company, or a local car dealership, people rely on your business. Any business owner in the automotive industry must keep up with the constant evolution of vehicle technology and the latest equipment. Automotive equipment financing like leases and machinery loans allow you to get the equipment you need to provide the best service and stay competitive in this industry.
Buying automotive equipment can be expensive, requiring a large sum of cash upfront that can disrupt your business cash flow. Many owners can't afford to purchase equipment because the costs of these items will be out of the budget of many smaller businesses dealing with growth, operations, and demand. In addition, larger, financially stable companies prefer to finance an expensive piece of equipment instead of buying it outright as they could use the money and invest it elsewhere.
This is all possible with equipment financing because the equipment cost is spread over time in a lease or loan, meaning the company will have some working capital left to invest in growth, cover payroll, and take care of other crucial expenses.
1st Commercial Credit offers auto financing and leasing programs designed to help you get the new or used tools and equipment you need to run a company successfully. Our programs allow you to avoid disturbing your cash flow while giving you access to the latest technology and equipment. 1st Commercial Credit provides business owners the flexibility to upgrade and acquire new equipment to suit their needs while keeping their businesses on the cutting edge of the automotive industry. We have experience working with auto repair, automotive dealers, auto body shops, and oil and lube centers. We have helped these businesses keep their operations up and running to keep their customers happy and coming back.
1st Commercial Credit is a specialized financier who knows precisely what it takes to secure a perfect financing option that companies need to grow faster and easier than any other lender. Banks often turn down businesses because of low credit scores, but there are many other reasons why they could decide your business is not a good fit for them. Automotive companies are considered special-purpose facilities. In the bank's eyes, this means that if these businesses cease operations during their loan term, the facility cannot be easily turned into a profitable enterprise in a different industry. In addition, banks also consider that many small automotive businesses have a high level of loan defaults by business owners of these facilities, making it especially difficult, if not impossible, to obtain funding from a traditional lender.
The good news is that 1st Commercial Credit understands that the outlook for automotive-based businesses is bright and full of opportunities. We can work with many different companies that banks won't even look at, and we have the industry experience to understand and serve you better. Contact us today to begin the automotive equipment financing relationship that will propel your business forward.
Some businesses prefer not to have their customers know about the partnership with a factoring company for different reasons. 1st Commercial Credit respects business owners’ wishes and preferences, and that is why we also offer non-notification factoring for these companies that wish to remain confidential about factoring their receivables.
For Alabama businesses to qualify for this type of financing, they need to be large companies and fulfill specific stability and budget requirements. If your Alabama company will benefit more from this alternative, here are some of the extra benefits your company will experience: no notice of assignment, customized rates, cash advances made on the same day or within 24 hrs, checks can still be made payable to your company’s name, quick credit checks for prospective customers.
