Discover how Invoice Finance solutions support the manufacturing industry

The UK manufacturing sector constitutes the second largest market for invoice discounting services, accounting for an estimated 26.1% of industry revenue? This is because the manufacturing industry has distinct cost requirements that can be met using invoice finance. It’s often an ongoing cycle of machinery repair and maintenance costs, and with the usual payroll and premises expenses, business owners often find themselves juggling money just to keep on top of expenses.

Invoice discounting can be an important alternative to traditional credit lines, unlocking up to 90% of the value held in your unpaid sales ledger.
