Best Invoice Financing Providers for your Business
Following on from our guide we have listed the best invoice financing providers in the UK, USA and Australia that can help you get paid faster on your invoices.
Fundbox will advance you cash based on your unpaid invoices. You just hook up your accounting software and select an invoice you want to borrow against. Fundbox will transfer you the full value of the invoice and you will pay them back in installments over 12 or 24 weeks. They charge a daily fee for the loan, so there are no penalties for early repayment.

They offer lines of credit up to $100,000 to businesses that have been trading for at least a year and have an annual turnover of at least $50,000. All you have to do is connect your business finances to Kabbage who will rapidly analyse how much cash you can access.
