Factoring FAQ

How is Invoice Factoring Different than a Bank Loan?

Factoring is the purchase of a company’s accounts receivable as opposed to a loan that creates debt on the balance sheet. You are simply speeding up your cash flow with invoice factoring by utilizing an asset your company already had. Factoring focuses on the creditworthiness of your customers, while banks focus on your company’s financial history and cash flow. Accounts receivable funding is not a loan, therefore provides you with less debt on your company’s balance sheet. Paragon Financial can make a quick funding decision while banks may take weeks, or even months, to approve a loan. We also provide credit protection with all of our funding packages.

How Long Does it Take to Receive the First Funding?

The initial funding takes 3-10 business days after we receive your signed agreement. If you wish, you can send some invoices to be funded with the signed contract in order to expedite your funding. It takes less than 24 hours once an account is set-up.

What Information Will You Need From My Company to Begin the Funding Process?

A short application, your company’s most recent accounts receivable and accounts payable aging reports, articles of Incorporation or d/b/a filing, a master customer list, and a sample invoice.

Do I Have to Factor All of My Invoices When I Start Factoring?

No. You decide which invoices you want to factor and which invoices you want to keep as your own. There is no requirement to factor all of your invoices.

Is a Personal Guarantee Required?

We give you Working Capital, Credit Protection and include A/R Management Services in our fee, the real risk is your performance in meeting your customer’s needs and the occasional fraud. We ask that you stand behind your work and be honest with us in all our dealings. This is why we ask for Personal Guarantees from your company’s ownership.

Will My Company Be Eligible for Factoring if it Has an Existing Bank Loan or Line of Credit?

If a bank has a lien on your company’s accounts receivable, you should let us know right away. We will ask the bank to subordinate that lien. Some banks will accommodate the request and others may decline depending on your circumstances. Our number one referrals come from loan officers willing to help out the client with cash flow needs. They are very familiar with this kind of interim financing. The other alternative is to pay off the loan if there are plenty of receivables to leverage the buyout.

How Much of My Company's Account Receivables Can Be Funded?

We can fund up to 100% of your company’s creditworthy account receivables, depending on the industry, we can advance you up to 90%.

What are Your Factoring Rates?

Low Rates as 1.25-2% per 30 DAYS including credit protection and A/R Management. For further information, please visit

Is there any Credit Risk Involved for My Company?

Paragon provides Non-Recourse Factoring and Credit Protection helping protect against credit risk. What we advance you plus the factoring fees will be covered for bankruptcy protection via our policy.

Which Customers Would be Good Candidates for Accounts Receivable Funding?

Usually 80% of your business comes from 20% of your customers and these would be the most likely to factor, however, we will factor 100% of your customer base so long as they are creditworthy. In order to approve your customer base, we will need their names, addresses, phone numbers and the amounts of credit desired for each client. This will save you time when submitting invoices to us.

How Can I Be Certain That Your Company will Treat My Customers Well?

The last thing we want is for you to lose a customer. We are not a collection agency. We will never harass your customers for money. Maintaining your customers’ goodwill and confidence are of utmost importance to us!

What Will My Customers Think About Factoring?

Factoring has become very common and most companies realize that rapidly growing companies require more working capital than traditional banks can provide. It’s very likely that your customers have already sent payments to Paragon in the past.

How Will My Customers Know Where to Send Payment for Invoices that I have Chosen to Factor?

Your customer will be notified to pay us directly. When invoices are factored, they will be stamped with the address to send payment prior to being mailed to your customer. Your company should never deposit invoice checks that were already purchased by a factor.
