What is factoring?

As a self-employed company manager, you know better than anyone else that your company needs working capital. Working capital is used to pay your suppliers on time, purchase stocks, pay salaries and so on, and is often replenished by client payments.

However, as a self-employed person you give your clients the option of only paying invoices 30 days after purchase (or even later), which means that your working capital can decline. And waiting for working capital can cause difficulties.

You can avoid this with 'factoring'. With factoring, KBC takes care of your outstanding invoices for you. You provide us with the details of your open invoices via a simple web application. If required, KBC will then immediately provide you with an advance payment of up to 85% of the amount on the outstanding invoice.

How exactly does it work?

KBC Factoring

As soon as KBC receives your outstanding invoice, up to 85% of the outstanding amount will be deposited into your business account (if required). Subsequently, KBC will provide a quick and professional follow-up with the client. That means that – as a self-employed person – you don't need to waste any more time on the administrative follow-up of your invoices. As soon as the invoice is paid by the client, KBC will immediately transfer the amount to you (minus any advance payment you may have already received).

Insolvency risk cover

Did you also opt for 'insolvency risk cover' because you don't want to run the risk of one of your clients going bankrupt? If so, KBC will pay out the integral sum insured no later than 100 days after the due date of the relevant unpaid invoice.
