Factoring: protect your working capital
As a company manager, you know better than anyone how your company relies on its working capital. It’s what you use to pay your suppliers on time, for purchasing, to pay salaries and so on.
If your customers are slow to pay your invoices, your working capital can suffer. This in turn has a negative impact on your operations and risks harming your relationship with your suppliers, your staff or – worse still – with the tax man.
Factoring helps you solve this problem and preserve your working capital. When you opt for factoring, KBC Brussels takes over all your unpaid invoices. All it takes is a simple online application in which you send us the details of your unpaid invoices electronically. If you want, KBC Brussels will immediately advance you up to 85% of the outstanding amount. When the customer pays the invoice, we transfer the money to you, less the amount of the advance, if you requested one. The factoring service means that you no longer have to worry about the administrative follow-up of your invoices: KBC Brussels will do it for you. You can even opt for insolvency risk cover, which guarantees that your invoice will be paid even if your customer is declared bankrupt.
