CIT's factoring services

Accounts receivable factoring is a financial tool that can help you accelerate cash flow, improve collections and control exposure to bad debts. Essentially, it provides you with working capital to run your businesses and have the peace of mind that you’ll get paid for approved and undisputed invoices through working with a factor.

How it works

You sell your product to a customer.

The factor (in this example, CIT) works directly with your customer and ensures they are credit-worthy for you to do business with. CIT collects payments from the customer.

Notification factoring

Notification factoring provides an outsourcing option that includes customer credit analysis, accounts receivable collections and accounts receivable bookkeeping at a cost generally lower than if the functions were handled in-house. Accounts receivable are sold to CIT and we underwrite the buyer's financial ability to pay, while typically providing credit protection on approved and undisputed accounts.

Non-notification factoring

A non-notification factoring program is similar in many aspects to notification factoring. Non-notification factoring allows companies to utilize CIT for customer credit analysis while maintaining their own accounts receivable collections and bookkeeping departments.

Select credit accounts receivable protection

This type of factoring can be provided on either a notification or non-notification basis. It can be used to obtain credit protection on a select customer account or small group of accounts. This solution is used primarily for customer accounts that pose a concern to the seller for any reason (e.g., concentration, marginal risk, etc.).
