Invoice Financing

Bill & pay + invoicing solutions = the financing you need to support your growth

A modular approach to invoice financing

All recruitment agencies know about the pressures of cashflow – the need to make regular payments to staff and suppliers, cover necessary overheads such as office costs in advance of clients paying their invoices. Our invoicing financing services enable effective financial management of your agency with a range of services that can be shaped to suit your growth and cover these financing needs.

We offer a modular approach where we match our services to exactly what you need, although we find agencies typically use our services in the following way:

1. Starting out – A full bill & pay and factoring solution that allows you to invoice in a secure and protected way

2. Growing – As above, but with the option for you to carry out your own credit control and for us to deliver the service under your agency brand

3. Maturing – With our Confidential Invoice Discounting, we can feed invoices into your accounting system while you handle cash and sales ledger management.

All the invoice financing you need to get your business on a firm financial footing

Starting out

We can give your recruitment business the best start by providing a full bill & pay and factoring solution that allows you to focus on growing the business. We can provide up to 100% of the value of the invoice and we’ll be responsible for credit checks, bad debt protection, invoicing, credit control, payroll, P32/CIS administration and settlement to HMRC and payments direct to your contractors. Our full back office support and online system (Resauce), enabling you to manage your contractors, assignments and clients online.


As your business grows, you may wish to carry out some financing tasks in-house, for example, carrying out your own credit control. We will still process your payroll, both PAYE and contractor, produce and dispatch invoices but you might elect for us to do this under your agency name and brand with our confidential factoring service.


Further expansion usually means that you want to take responsibility for more of your agency’s financing in-house. We can still provide bill & pay but with our confidential invoice discounting (CID), we can feed our invoices directly into your accounting system. Our modular approach means you can also have a pure CID facility, without bill & pay, if you decide to manage all your back office in-house.
