Is Prairie Business Credit Expensive? How Much Do They Charge?
The fee varies with the amount of time it takes to collect the receivables. The average fee is often in the range of 2%-5% of the face amount of the invoice.
Factoring costs are tied only to sales.
Will the benefits of factoring outweigh the cost? This is the most critical consideration. The cost of capital should be viewed as an investment which will advance the business, just as is a new piece of equipment is an investment. You shouldn't spend money on a piece of equipment unless it increases sales and profit or reduces costs. The cost of acquiring cash through factoring should be weighed in the same way. The immediate and ongoing availability of cash must help to increase sales and profits.
The following exhibit summarizes the financial impact on an actual company that uses factoring to fund its sales growths. This company began with $1 million in total sales. By factoring, they were able to double sales to $2 million in the following year. They paid $40,000 in factoring costs, and increase their profit nine times, to $180,000.
The factoring cost is 4% and $1 million of receivables were factored in the second year.
