What is invoice financing?

If your business is looking into borrowing money against the amounts due from your customers, then you should consider our invoice finance solutions here at Nucleus. 

Invoice finance is an asset-based loan that is based on a company’s outstanding invoices in its debtor book and sales ledger. This type of financing allows businesses to access funding against its debtor book, which is generally the company's major asset. Cash is then available as soon as invoices are raised to be reinvested or used to run the business.

Invoice finance is an extremely popular alternative financial product, as it is taken out against the value of a company’s unpaid invoices. Instead of a business being made to wait months to receive money, it can apply for this type of funding from reputable invoice finance providers such as Nucleus and get access to funds almost instantly. If businesses find themselves unable to cope due to large amounts of money being tied up in unpaid invoices, they can turn to us for help

Our invoice finance facilities start at £100,000 and you can borrow up to £50m.

Usually with invoice finance the invoices themselves are an asset, so we take a charge called a debenture as security over them. Dependent on the size of your facility and your individual business, additional security may be required – but this is negotiable and bespoke.

We would be happy to put you in touch with an existing client. Please just get in touch with one of our team and they can arrange it.

Typically, it takes around one month to complete the process. Sometimes it is faster than that, and other times slower. The main hold up is often due to getting access to documents. When you come to Nucleus for our invoice finance solutions, please make sure you are transparent with our team and have all your documents readily available to ensure efficiency. Once onboarded, you will have access to your funding line within a day.

One of our experts will give you an initial call to establish the potential for Nucleus to support you. Following on from that, they will arrange a convenient time to come to your business for a site visit.
