Online factors (factoring companies and banks) provide detailed information about their fees and interest rates, although variables relating to a specific business or industry can bring unknown elements into play. These are sorted out, however, before any contracts are signed by the business and the factor. Once standard fees and charges are applied to a particular business, factoring quotes can be issued.

How to Obtain a Factoring Quote

First, factoring is not an endeavor you should jump into. This is an excellent financial resource for any business, but, like loans, debt consolidation, or any other outside financing, it has its pluses and minuses. Gather information online and through personal contacts in and out of the business world to get accurate information about how factoring can help.

You probably want to contact the accounts receivable specialist at your local factoring bank and talk candidly about why you are considering factoring. This bank representative can explain the institution's fees and interest rates, as well as any special charges that may be associated with your type of enterprise. Contact as many online factoring companies as you feel you need to in order to get a good picture of various costs.

Be sure to determine terms and services as well. Not all factors provide the same services; some may charge for individual services, and some may provide a total package price. Although you will probably be informed of this, banks and other factors have minimums for the volume of accounts receivable they will handle. If you are a very small company, you may not be eligible for factoring, but factoring is so immediately energizing for a business that it should be explored anyway.
