Factoring is a financial transaction and a type of debtor finance in which a business sells its accounts receivable (bills of exchange or promissory notes, or simply issued invoices, which the exporter is selling on an open account basis) to a third party at a discount. A business will sometimes factor its receivable assets to meet its present and immediate cash needs. A financing method in which a business owner sells accounts receivable at a discount to a third-party funding source to raise capital. Factors are normally specialized financial services companies, but many are owned by banks. Normally, afterthe factor has purchased a receivable, the importer or buyer pays the factor directly.

Vendor financing is the lending of money by a vendor to a customer who then uses it to buy the vendor’s inventory or services. Sometimes called “trade credit,” such financing usually takes the form of deferred loans from the vendor. It may also include a transfer of shares of the borrowing company to the vendor. Vendor financing is most common when a vendor sees a higher value in a customer’s business and business relationship than a traditional lending institution does. Such loans carry a higher interest rate than what a borrower would normally find at a bank.
