Is there any collateral requirement for factoring?

Technology/Functionality
Answer

As with all financial services, some criteria do need to be met in order to ensure that the factoring contract will be beneficial and sustainable. Invoice factoring is a form of lending, and as such, you may need to provide collateral to guarantee repayment of a cash advance, if the debt cannot be collected on an invoice. However, this may only be required if you are trading with customers with a bad credit history and normally only with recourse factoring agreements (where any bad debt remains the responsibility of your business), so it is certainly not a guaranteed prerequisite. Make sure you check your offer terms and contract thoroughly for any collateral requirements.
