What is international factoring?
International factoring is a financial product that can help make trade go more smoothly when exporting products from a foreign country to the United States. International Factoring is a term used interchangeably with services also described as invoice factoring, invoice discounting, accounts receivable factoring, accounts receivable financing, or A/R factoring. In international factoring, you are selling the export invoice to a finance company when goods or services are provided in return for an initial advance. When the client pays the final invoice (30 days later and sometimes longer), the remainder of the payment is made minus a fee. Because the finance companies, referred often to as factors, in these deals are often located in the same country as the importer, the exporter gains the benefits of local collection resources to help ensure payment is made promptly. In addition, international factoring can provide cash flow support to withstand longer payment periods in their trade deals.
How does international factoring work?
What are the benefits of factoring international trade exports?
Instead of waiting 30 days or longer for payment from your importer, we advance the cost of the product to the exporter once the product has been delivered to the Importer (Advance of 80% less our commission).
We conduct credit investigation of debtors in the United States for our clients.
We have the ability to convert international risk into local risk and can leverage our operations to help you collect.

What types of companies use factoring and who do we fund?
Companies that get the most out of factoring are growing in sales and whose customers ask for payment terms. If your company has a product or service that sells with payment terms, there is no better tool for you than factoring. Factoring can be used by almost any company that gives payment terms instead of receiving immediate cash for the products it sells. Companies use factoring to supply the money needed to expand operations or maintain a current production level without sacrificing other areas of the business.

Here's what some of our customers are saying.
"As an exporter, I feel that my hands are tied, and I’m at the mercy of my clients to receive my payments. I’ve had to extend the credit terms with some clients and our cash flow depends on the ability of my clients to repay. Local financial institutions are not working with the exporters, which makes things even more difficult. The International Factoring Program of Cultiva Financial is a great solution for our financial needs."
