Invoice Discounting vs Factoring

Invoice Discounting and Factoring are the two types of invoice finance products. The biggest difference between them being who collects the customer payments.

Invoice Discounting is similar to Factoring in that it gives you access to cash as you issue new invoices. However, a key difference is that you’ll be responsible for collecting your payments. This means your use of an Invoice Finance product will be kept completely confidential from your customers.
