At 1st Commercial Credit, we understand the challenges that come from running a business with cash flow issues. That is why we are prepared to advance you funds based on the value of your invoices as soon as possible. You will be able to meet your regular obligations and start to think about the ways in which you can grow your business.
We will be more than happy to evaluate your accounts receivable with no obligation and we will show you how accounts receivable financing can significantly improve your company's finances. Accounts receivable finance does not act like a loan, so there is nothing to pay back. Our financial program is designed as an ongoing receivable asset purchase.
Accounts receivable financing gives companies upfront payment for their outstanding invoices before the payment term due dates.
Factoring companies advance you a previously agreed percentage of the pending invoices in exchange for a small fee. 1st Commercial Credit offers accounts receivable financing services for businesses in most industries across the nation.
There are three types of accounts receivable financing programs that can provide fast cash and many other advantages:
Invoice factoring — 1stCC will factor your invoices and, depending on the industry, advance up to 97% of the face value of the outstanding invoice. The invoice factoring company will take ownership of your invoices and will pursue collection from your customers directly. When 1stCC receives full payment for the invoice, it will then send you the remaining percentage minus a small factoring fee.
Accounts receivable loans — this type of “loan” does not act as a traditional bank loan. With this particular financing solution, a company selects which receivables to submit to the lender (1stCC) for early payment. In contrast to factoring, with accounts receivable loans, your company will receive full payment for each invoice initially and not have to wait for the remaining balance once the invoices are fully paid. This is the main reason why it is called a “loan,” even though it is extremely different from a traditional loan. The financing rates associated with this form of financing are generally lower, transactions do not appear on the balance sheet, and they do not impact a company’s debt ratio.
Asset-based lending — involves loaning money in an agreement secured by a company’s collateral. An asset-based loan is secured by equipment, accounts receivables, inventory, or other property owned by the borrower. This type of financing serves businesses, not consumers. It is also called asset-based financing. The company usually will have to commit most of their receivables for this form of financing and has little flexibility in terms of which ones are submitted.
The application process for financing receivables is very simple and fast with 1st Commercial Credit's underwriting department. We have the complete application process online, no printing or filling out paperwork by hand. You can submit your application package and get funded in 3 to 5 working days.
All we need to see is an accounts receivable aging report, your customer credit limit request, articles of incorporation, copies of your outstanding invoices and rate confirmation agreements/ purchase orders.
In some cases, we can get you an answer on the same day. It only takes three to five business days to set up your account and start transferring money to your bank account. It is that easy.
At 1st Commercial Credit, we are recognized as one of the largest receivable based finance companies for small to medium sized businesses in the industry.
We advance funds to your company by using your outstanding invoices as collateral. When we finance your receivables, we will give you the chance to watch your cash flow gradually grow right along with the increase in your invoiced sales.
The best part about financing accounts receivable is that it is based on the creditworthiness of your clients and not your business. That is why so many businesses are using receivables based financing to solve many of their cash flow shortage problems. It is a cash advance system that relies on the credit scores of your clients, and not your business.
We can fund your business, regardless of the size of your business, by using your accounts receivable as collateral. Your company could be one week old and, as long as you have qualified outstanding invoices, we can help you get the funding you need.
We can help any company, regardless of its financial status. We have successfully helped clients who have tax liens and we have also helped companies that could not get approved for a bank loan of any kind. There is no need to rely on a bank when we can provide you with the funding you need based on the invoiced sales that you have.
The important thing to remember about financing receivables is that it is not a loan. This is an advance against invoiced sales your company has already delivered. You are not taking on new debt because you already paid for the labor and products, or the debt is still pending to be paid to suppliers.
We can help companies who cannot get lines of credit because the company principals have bad credit, companies that are growing faster than their incoming cash, or so new that they cannot get funding by a bank.
If you have the invoiced sales to improve your cash flow but slow paying customers are pulling your business down, then we can help. Our financial experts will show you how accounts receivable financing can significantly improve your company's finances and get you the money you need right away.
Your business will likely be eligible for accounts receivable factoring if you sell your services or products to other companies. 1st Commercial Credit finances small businesses and startups. Our approval and funding decisions for loans on receivables are not based on low or bad credit. The financing you need can be obtained by selling your accounts receivable to an experience factoring company like ours. We work and factor receivables for various industries, including staffing, transportation, manufacturing, distribution, oil and gas, agriculture, healthcare, IT, and many more.

Trucking & Freight — Freight invoice factoring offers a reliable and optimal financing option for companies in this competitive sector. For trucking companies with freight brokers as customers, invoice factoring will provide a cost-effective and dependable financing solution.
Staffing Agencies — Staffing agencies sometimes struggle to meet weekly payroll when it takes anywhere from 30 to 90 days for payments to come in. Payroll funding for staffing agencies gives companies access to the working capital they need to meet payroll obligations and grow.
Construction — Construction factoring is an alternative form of financing for your cash flow challenges. Slow payments from clients are standard in the construction industry. These unpaid invoices can force your business to stop being able to accept new, more extensive projects. Factoring allows companies to access the funds needed to increase construction staffing efforts, cover employee payroll, upfront costs, and purchase equipment.
Government Contractors — When dealing with government contractors, there’s often a long time between invoice and payment. The problem is that working capital is needed today to meet payroll and fund operating costs. By selling your government invoices and accounts receivable to 1st Commercial Credit, you can turn government receivables into immediate cash.
