Frequently Asked Factoring Questions

Is accounts receivable financing a bank loan?

No. Your accounts receivables are assets that AmeriFactors purchases from you. A loan will be a debt that reports to the credit bureau and factoring does not.

Is factoring new?

Accounts receivable financing, also called factoring, is one of the oldest forms of financing in the world. Factoring has been around in one form or another for more than 4,000 years.

Today, accounts receivable financing is a widely used and viable business solution.
