Construction Factoring is a quick and easy way to ensure your business has working capital to complete projects.
“Construction Factoring is a fast and efficient way of funding your business and we fund industries where other funders can’t”
If you suffer from long payment terms, delays because of applications for payment or contractual issues that delay your revenue, then construction factoring could be right for you.
Construction factoring can help to speed up this chain, enabling your construction firm, regardless of size, to maintain a fluid credit facility. This allows you to continue to work on projects and make plans for the future.
As a contractor or sub-contractor, working within the parameters of a JCT contract and the complexities they bring can be difficult. The aim of the JCT contract is to improve the quality and standards within the construction industry, providing a standard working practice for all involved in the process.
The reality can often be much more challenging with structured staged payments, ‘Applications for Payment’ needing to be made and retention clauses holding anything up to 5% of a contract’s worth until the project has reached Practical Completion, sometimes months or years from when sub-contract works were completed.
