How does selective invoice finance work?
Your business has £100,000 tied up in payments owed from debtors in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, disrupting your cash flow and putting strain on the relationship with your own suppliers, who also appreciate prompt payment.
Fortunately, after quickly checking your eligibility, you find that your business qualifies for selective invoice finance from Growth Lending. After uploading your invoices to our simple-to-use platform, we are able to advance up to 90% of the total value of these invoices, which include a £20,000 invoice from a UK debtor and two €40,000 invoices from debtors in the Netherlands.
What is more, if you were to already have an invoice finance or working capital facility with another UK lender, we could work alongside them, funding only the €80,000 invoices.

Invoice finance is when a lender utilises an unpaid invoice as security for funding, giving you immediate access to a percentage of the invoice’s value. Many lenders provide funding against your whole sales ledger.
It releases capital enhancing your cash flow and enabling you to pay staff and suppliers, reinvest in operations and growth earlier than you would be able to if your cash remained tied up in late payments.
Selective invoice finance gives you the flexibility to fund individual invoices. Simply select the invoices you want to fund and decide when the funds are released, putting you in control of your cash flow for a low service fee.
Selective invoice finance is sometimes referred to as spot factoring, spot invoice finance or single invoice factoring, in reference to the flexibility of the facility.
In certain markets, these terms are associated with slightly different products, where spot factoring or single invoice factoring refer to the funding of specific individual invoices.
Our selective invoice finance product gives you the flexibility to fund whatever proportion of invoices you choose, freeing up working capital and retaining control of your cash flow.

With selective invoice finance, Growth Lending does not impose a minimum contract period or minimum income criteria and we do not restrict funding based on concentration, making our product more accessible than many similar options on the market.
The flexibility of selective invoice finance means that you can often access a greater advance rate than is usually offered, as you select the individual invoices or debtors to be financed.
It also gives you more control over your cash flow, as you can leverage individual invoices, or groups of invoices, depending on your working capital requirements.
Traditionally, invoice factoring requires a business to sell its whole sales ledger to a third-party factoring company. This firm takes on the debt in its entirety, freeing up working capital for the business. With factoring, the lender usually becomes responsible for chasing debtors and recovering payments.
Invoice finance on the other hand, does not require the sale of a whole ledger, with payments advanced by the lender on an invoice-by-invoice basis. Working this way also means that you retain responsibility for debtor payments, keeping closer control of your cash flow.
Your business must be registered in the UK, US or or other OECD countries on request, with B2B invoices of more than £10,000 and payment terms between 30 and 120 days.
With selective invoice finance, you retain complete control of your cash flow and are therefore responsible for recovering outstanding payments.
We can fund alongside other lenders, funding the overseas invoices while they retain the UK invoice finance. However, your existing lender may have to consent to the facility.
We can also offer standalone facilities overseas, with no requirement to fund a linked UK entity, so can work flexibly to meet your needs.
