Compared to other forms of financing available to the construction industry, factoring can be a relatively simple, and quick process. After signing the factoring agreement and becoming a client, you sell your unpaid invoices to us. We provide you with a percentage of its face value right away, typically 80%. After completing the construction project and your client pays us, we will subtract our factoring fee and send you the remainder. Simple!
No more waiting for months to get paid!
The CapitalPlus difference: we only work with construction businesses.
For more than 25 years, the CapitalPlus mission has been to financially support contractors, subcontractors, and all of the construction industry. Compared to other “one size fits all” factoring companies, our team has been carefully chosen to include highly educated, experienced professionals with construction and finance knowledge. We are not a giant, impersonal corporation, or a cold, faceless phone app. This experience means we understand your unique challenges, like dealing with liens and bonded work, and build tailored solutions designed to support your goals.
We are only successful if you’re successful. That’s why we take pride in providing tailored, individualized service. And if our funding options aren’t a perfect fit, we’re always try to recommend other construction factoring companies that are, of course, only ones we have built a trusted relationship with and believe are a better solution for your situation.
Unlike traditional bank loans that can be so difficult to get approved for, invoice factoring can be a great option for construction businesses. It can be ideal if:
- you have cash flow challenges — invoice factoring can unlock your “financial handcuffs” when waiting for receivables by slow-paying customers.
- you’ve researched your options — you have looked into other options and know how dangerous MCAs can be and that bank loans are not possible.
- you have a limited credit history — unlike a bank loan, your credit history is NOT the main determinant in our invoice factoring, so new businesses or ones with less-than-perfect credit are often great candidates.
- you need funds to strategically grow — being able to use factoring like a line-of-credit means you can bid on and undertake larger jobs that others might not be able to.
- you focus on commercial construction — factoring invoices in the residential sector can be difficult.
Use the factored funds where you need them.
When you decide to take advantage of construction factoring from CapitalPlus, you can use the money how you see fit:
- pay bills
- make the company payroll
- pay external contractors and subcontractors
- hire new employees
- pay operating expenses
- purchase equipment
- pay for materials and supplies
- pay back taxes
- compete for future work
The choice is up to you!
A few real-world examples.
Thousands of businesses have benefited from CapitalPlus’ construction factoring over the past 25+ years. Read a few of the many success stories.
Client: A general contractor in Florida
Situation: Working on a luxury resort hotel project was a larger project than they had normally undertaken. For this reason, the contractor was worried about having sufficient funds for the upcoming payroll.
Solution: $280,000 initial funding on the $1,500,000 contract
Result: With CapitalPlus’ construction factoring the contractor was able to meet payroll on time. They also took comfort in the fact that CapitalPlus’ lien compliance ensured all subs and vendors were paid and signed lien waivers. Invoice Factoring enabled them to spend 100% of their time focused on their project and not worrying about back-office stresses.
Client: A mechanical, electrical, plumbing contractor
Situation: This existing CapitalPlus client needed working capital to purchase over a million dollars of new plumbing materials and other supplies to take on a large contract which did not allow materials to be invoiced at delivery. Without this cash infusion, the contractor would have to pass on this opportunity.
Solution: $2,000,000 in Account Receivables factoring
Result: The contractor was able to purchase the project’s equipment, start, and successfully complete it.
Client: A masonry and concrete subcontractor working in Atlanta, GA
Situation: This subcontractor had been receiving funds from another factoring company that recently made a strategic decision to no longer work in the construction industry. That left the subcontractor without the needed cash flow to pay vendors and meet payroll.
Solution: $52,000 in Factoring funds
Result: Using CapitalPlus’ factoring options, the contractor had the working capital they needed to take on restoration of a stone wall on a historical property, and is now well-positioned to bid on larger projects in the future.

If you are new to CapitalPlus Financial Services or factoring in general, we hope that we can give you the information you need to make the best decision for your company’s working capital needs.
Factoring is financial option that involves selling of your receivables or outstanding invoices to a third party company for at a discounted rate. This allows you to not have to wait the normal 30-90 days for payment. Factoring provides billions of dollars to a wide range of companies - from multi-million-dollar corporations to small privately held construction companies each year.
Factoring provides an immediate source of cash flow for your company. Because you are able to choose where the money is needed most, it can be used to take on more or larger projects, to meet payroll, pay taxes, replenish inventory, increase advertising, purchase equipment, improve your credit rating, and so much more.
When we purchase an invoice, we advance you a percentage of the face value. This advance rate amount varies based on the situation, your needs, and an overall risk assessment of your client. Generally you will receive up to 80% right away, then receive the remaining reserve (less fee) after we receive your client's payment. We are 100% transparent about our fees so there are never any surprises.
When we purchase your invoice, we will advance a portion of the invoice, usually 70-80%, and hold the remaining in reserve. After we receive payment from your customer, the reserve is wired back to you, less our fee.
The established factoring fee is a percentage of the purchase amount and the length of time it takes to collect. The amount is determined by the risk of each invoice purchased, the pay term, and the number of invoices being factored. Because there are so many factors that determine this amount, you will be quoted all fees up before agreeing to anything.
It is your choice how frequently you provide invoices for purchase. Just like buying in bulk at your favorite grocery store, you can receive a discount for committing to a higher volume of invoices. When you reach out for the first time, you will be assigned an Executive Account Representative. Tell your representative your needs and they will help you understand how you get the most out of factoring for the best price.
No. Most contracts specifically define how your invoices should be prepared and when they should be submitted. We have contract experts on staff who can help you understand the requirements and help you comply with invoice formats and other needs.
No. The name on the check remains yours. You will however, be required to change the remittance address of that check to our lock box.
