Prepayment advances are made at an agreed percentage of their total value, typically 80 percent to 90 percent. As your customers pay, the non-prepaid element of the invoices is made available to you, minus any agreed charges. While the facility continues to run, additional funding is made available on all approved future sales, allowing you access to the cash flow required to run your business.
