APR vs Discount Fee’s

Every now and then we get a business owner looking for the difference between APR (Annualized PERCENTAGE RATES) and Factoring Discount fees.
APR vs Discount Fee’s
As an analyst these questions can still confuse me. Business owners juggle many different financial tasks and terms. However there is a huge difference between factoring discount fees and annualized percentage rates.

The difference is complicated:

– Annualized percentage rates are dependent on a businesses risk over the year.

-Factoring discounts fee’s lower the risk to net 90 terms at the most.

*keep in mind if you try and compare an annualized rate with a short term rate(factoring discount fee), you must ALSO compare a company that can qualify for a long term loan and one that cannot. Those two companies are not the same, neither is the cost of funds.

Above is the definition, and as you can see trying to compare the two is like saying ducks and eagles are the same because they both fly. I say this because if you attempt to multiple a 30-day invoice fee by 12 you will not get a accurate number of the annualized percentage rate.

For example: When a factoring company funds your  30-day invoice with net 90-day terms, your invoice will be repaid between 25-45 days on average. This means the risk of the outstanding invoice is only over a short period of time.

This short term reflects the risk your company brings into the equation. Factoring companies accept this risk and offer a factoring discount fee.

On the other hand a bank will make a loan that they expect will be paid over a year or more, because they make calculations whether or not your business will be better over a period of time. If banks see any risks that your business cannot pay back the loan, the you get no loan!

Factoring companies will give your business funds within 24 hours to 3 days. Their lending is dependent on the creditworthiness of your customers.

Just how can factoring be cheaper compared to a conventional business loan that’s only reserved for prime customers with plenty of assets?

Let us explain this for you:

The key is to recognize how nearly all factoring rates work. Even though the rates might seem to be cheaper than bank financing, often they will not be.

Why?

Well first we need to evaluate how factoring fees are commonly evaluated. Factoring company’s commonly charge you a fee that will increase the longer that a invoice remains un-paid. This is sensible, the more time an invoice goes unpaid = the greater the cost.

Below are 2 popular techniques for determining factoring fees:

1. Ten Day Fee: This is certainly the most popular factoring fee structure. In this case, the factoring company prices a fee for a 10-day period. For instance, 1.00% for every 10 days the invoice remains unpaid, this fee adds up until the customers pay the invoice in full. The fee for the first 10 days is 1.00%. The fee for the second ten days is 2.00% and etc.

2. Daily fee: This is the most basic factoring fee model you are charged a daily fee for each day that the invoice is unpaid by the customer. An example of this would be a 0.30% fee per day. This equals about 1.00% for ten days and about 3.00% for every 30 days the invoice remains unpaid.

These illustrations have got one thing in common = the cost of factoring a invoice for ten days is 1.00%. Using this information, you could say factoring is provided at rates “as low as 1%” Definitely, just make sure your invoice are paid very quickly and in ten days or less.

in the event that you are evaluating factoring proposals, you should contemplate looking at the fee structure carefully to recognize what the total cost of factoring is going to be for you. The best way to find out – check with your factoring company for the cost of factoring invoices for thirty or sixty days. That will provide you with a good measure of the actual factoring fee cost.
