After the purchasing company receives full payment for the invoice, you'll receive the remaining value minus a 'factoring' fee. This fee is based on a number of factors, including your customer's credit worthiness, the average terms, and the invoice number and size. However, generally, the invoice factoring fee is up to five percent of the invoice value.
To give you an idea about how invoice factoring transactions work, here are some of the main steps in the process: You submit an application to an invoice factoring company. After you're approved for invoice factoring with the company, you can start forwarding your customers' invoices to the company for cash advances. (Your customer will receive a bill from the factoring company, which will be responsible for all payments processing activities related to the invoice.). Assuming everything checks out, you'll be advanced up to 90 percent of the value of the purchased invoices. Your customers most likely submit payments to the company that bought their invoice. This company, in turn, will forward you the remaining, unpaid portion of the invoice excluding the invoice factoring fee, of course.
Electronic invoices encourage organizations to discontinue the use of paper invoices, replacing them with a digital version of an electronically_generated tax document, which has the same legal validity as the traditional version and preserves a faithful record of all commercial transactions. In this way, the entire billing process can be administered electronically. However, it is important to remember that amount of Value Added Tax must be included on every Invoice.
