What is invoice discounting?

Invoice discounting is a confidential invoice finance facility, allowing you to release funds from your unpaid invoices and inject them straight back into your company's cash flow - meaning that you don't have to wait until the end of the agreed payment period to receive the cash - with this being up to 120 days in some cases. Instead, it could be in your account within 24 hours of an invoice being raised.

Unlike other products, confidential invoice discounting allows you to maintain the strong relationships that you've worked so hard to build up with your customers, because you remain in charge of your own credit control processes, and they’re never made aware of our involvement.

How it works

  1. You supply goods and services to your customers just as usual.
  2. You send your customer the invoice, but payable to a nominee bank account which is administered by Hitachi Capital Invoice Finance, as well as a copy to ourselves.
  3. We will give you up to 85% of the invoice amount within 24 hours. At this stage, a service fee is deducted from your account, which is calculated as a percentage of your turnover.
  4. You continue to collect and chase the payments from your customer, with our involvement being strictly confidential.
  5. Your customer settles the invoice in full, making payment to our nominee account. When the remaining balance is paid, a finance fee is deducted from your account, charged as a percentage of the total amount lent.
