How Does Factoring Work?
1) Your Company provides goods or services to creditworthy customers and then invoices them with a copy sent to Paragon.
2) Paragon will fund your business with an immediate payment of 70%-90% of the received amount.
3) Customers make payment directly to Paragon according to the terms of the invoice, and Paragon returns the balance of the paid invoice to you minus a fee.
How Paragon Financial Can Help Your Business
Apply now by completing the quick, easy application on the right-hand side of this page.
Once we receive your application, it will be reviewed immediately, and an executive will contact you to discuss your financial needs and goals. Upon approval, Paragon will send a proposal outlining our terms and rates. Upon your agreement with our proposal, we will overnight the legal documentation.
When the legal documents are executed, we will perform a due diligence background check. Remember, we are not primarily concerned with your company’s credit; we rely on your customer’s ability to pay.
The due diligence work takes about 3-5 business days to complete. This consists of checking for Uniform Commercial Code liens, judgment search, tax lien search, Dun & Bradstreet search and various other corporate searches.
When the searches are completed, funding can begin immediately. Thereafter, once invoices are received and verified, you will receive funding within 24 hours.
One invoice copy can be submitted to Paragon. Mail your customer the original invoice and fax us a copy along with proof of performance and/or delivery and any other supporting documentation. In most cases, we will notify your customers to send payment to us directly.
Fill out the assignment schedule sheet provided by us. It must be signed by the company president. When completed, attach it to the invoice that you are submitting. We use this as a cover sheet to your faxed invoices and we forward this cover sheet to our data entry department, so they can enter your invoices into the computer, and you can see them on your account 24 hours per day.
Per your discretion, we can send funds via wire transfer or check (regular mail or overnighted).
Please keep one copy of the assignment schedule of accounts and invoices for your records.
Funds will be advanced following verification of the invoices. This is usually completed the same day we receive the invoices.
Credit approval for new accounts is easy, and we encourage you to call in advance for credit checks prior to shipping goods or providing services to new accounts. All we need is the name and address of the new customer.
Submit to us all of the customers you would like to factor so we can credit-approve them for funding. Include the contact name and phone number.
Send us invoices with their purchase order (if applicable) and proof of delivery or performance. The goods must have been delivered or service performed.
We then verify the invoices and immediately advance you money via wire transfer, up to 90% of the gross invoice amount. Payment of the invoices are made directly to us from your customers.
Once payment is received, we fund you the remaining amount, minus our fee.
It’s that easy!
