Let's take a close look at the invoice collection process and try to determine how much of it your company can actually control. Your sales professionals head out into the world and sell your products or services to a target audience. If you do your marketing properly, then you can arm your sales professionals with leads that have a strong chance at turning into paying clients.
You and your accounting group do your due diligence prior to approving each and every new credit account in the hopes that you can establish relationships with customers that do not promise to buy more product than they can actually pay for. The point to credit is to allow customers to buy product now, and then pay for it later. But the unpredictable nature of when customers will actually pay is when problems start to occur.
Since these customers are on credit terms, your company is fronting your customers the money to buy these products. Until your customers actually pay their invoices, your organisation is on the line for the money required to fill orders.
Flexibility is one of the major benefits of factoring. Factoring is a great option for small businesses that frequently get rejected by banks for loans

As the company waits to get paid for the products it has shipped on good faith, it continues to need cash to maintain operations and 1st Commercial Credit delivers the funds.

Bad Credit, Good Credit, Or No Credit At All
Every day, Canadian business owners struggle with decisions that could affect their companies' financial futures. Do you pay that vendor bill this week, or do you make your payroll instead? Most business owners will choose to make payroll, and that will put their vendor invoice into a past due situation. It offers the business owner a chance to see this financial process from the side of the late-paying client and it can also damage the company's credit score. The business owner looks at the stack of his own past due invoices and cannot help to feel frustrated at the position that his own clients have put him in.
1st Commercial Credit is not interested in your company's credit score.
Accounts receivables factoring is something that every company needs to utilize, regardless of their credit status. When we approve an invoice for funding, the approval is based on the financial status of your customer and not your company. We will allow you to use your client base's combined financial strength to your advantage.
With this kind of a program in place, you can pay your vendor bills on time and improve your credit.
