Factoring Terminology

Accounts Receivable
A commercial debt due for repayment usually in 30 - 90 days. In the factoring industry the accounts receivable is what a company sells to a factor.

Advance Rate
The amount of money provided immediately to the company factoring its Accounts Receivable, expressed as a percentage of the total invoice amount. Advance Rates usually range from 75% to 95%.

Broker
An individual who pairs clients in need of cash with appropriate financial entities including factors.

Concentration
The amount of one client's accounts receivable due from a single customer.

Creditor
The party to whom money is owed.

Debtor
The business or organization that owes money on an invoice purchased by the factor; i.e. the client's customers, also known as account debtors.

Discount Rate
