How you can benefit from Invoice Discounting in Ireland

Invoice Discounting can help you release cash from your outstanding invoices, or improve cashflow to fund your growth plans and develop your business.

It bridges the gap between raising customer invoices and getting paid by releasing cash that can help support your day-to-day cashflow requirements or fund its growth.

In addition, unlike Factoring, it allows you to continue managing your sales ledger, credit control and collecting payments from your customers.
