Notification or Non-Notification
In the context of invoice factoring, the level of involvement of your debtors in the factoring process is referred to as “notification” and “non-notification” factoring.
In a notification factoring arrangement, the factoring company notifies your customers that your receivables are being sold to the factoring company. Your clients will be aware that your business is using factoring to manage its cash flow.
In a non-notification factoring arrangement, on the other hand, the factor won’t notify your customers that outstanding invoices are being sold. This allows you to maintain the appearance of solvency.
Notification or non-notification from a factoring company can provide businesses with a range of benefits and features, including:
The purpose of confidentiality in notification factoring is to protect sensitive business information, such as financial data, that you might need to share with the factor.
Confidentiality agreements are typically included in blind factoring contracts. They specify terms such as what information is considered confidential and how the A/R factor is allowed to use it.
Clear and transparent communication is important in notification factoring, as it helps to maintain trust and good relationships between you, your clients, and the factoring company.
When factoring is undisclosed, the factoring firm deals directly with your customers. This can streamline the process and reduce the risk of misunderstandings.
Notification factoring allows for the factoring company to take care of the collections process – freeing up your team to focus on other aspects of operations.
Notification or non-notification options can be customized to fit the needs of your business. Understand the terms and discuss any concerns before signing an arrangement.
