How does CapitalPlus' invoice factoring work?
It’s pretty simple (and fast). We buy your unpaid construction invoices and then quickly provide a percentage of the face value. When your customers pay we send you the balance, less a finance fee. In the meantime, you have a large portion of your money in hand to use for what you need. No waiting for months to get paid.
And invoice factoring is not just a quick cash flow solution, but you will also receive back-office support like lien compliance and risk management support that few invoice factoring companies offer.
How can I use the money?
When your company takes advantage of factoring from CapitalPlus you can use the money as you see fit. This enables you to:
- pay off creditors
- make payroll or hire new employees
- maintain overhead expenses
- pay taxes
- compete for larger jobs
- pay subcontractors and suppliers early – they will be more willing to work with you in the future!
- it’s up to you!
How do I know if invoice factoring is right for my construction business?
To determine if invoice factoring is right for your company, consider the following:
- your cash flow needs: Invoice factoring can provide quick cash to help improve cash flow.
- your clients’ credit: Invoice factoring may be a good option if your invoices are held by clients with a good credit rating. Remember, your credit is NOT taken into consideration, so new businesses are not penalized.
- your education of the cost: We will help you clearly understand the factoring rate upfront so you are comfortable with our relationship.

If you are new to factoring or CapitalPlus Financial Services we hope that these FAQs will give you the information you need to make the right decision for your company’s working capital and bookkeeping needs.
Receivable Financing, also referred to as factoring, is selling the right to payment to receivables or invoices to a factor at a small discounted rate from face value so that you do not have to wait the normal 45-60 days for payment. Over a billion dollars are provided to businesses each year through receivable financing. It is a financial service used by a wide range of companies, from multi-million-dollar corporations to small privately held companies.
When we purchase an invoice, we do so at a discount rate. Or put another way, we advance you a percentage of the face value of the invoice. This advance varies based on the situation, your needs as our client, and an overall risk assessment. We are 100% transparent about our fees so you will never be surprised.
When we purchase an invoice, we will typically advance a portion of the invoice. The rest is held in a reserve. When we receive payment from your customer the reserve becomes real money and is wired back to you, less our fee.
It provides an immediate source of cash flow for your company which you can use to take on more or larger projects, for working capital, to meet payroll, pay taxes, replenish inventory, increase advertising, purchase equipment, improve your credit rating, and so much more.
You provide CapitalPlus with the original invoice and purchase order or contract, and we advance you a percentage of the amount that will be paid to you by your customer. The percentage that is not included in the advance is held in what we call the reserves. When CapitalPlus collects the total amount due on these invoices from your customers and refunds we send you the reserve balance 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 driven by the risk of each purchase, the pay term, and the volume of factoring. You will know the fee before you agree 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 we will help you understand how you get the most out of factoring for the best price.
No. The name on the check remains that of our customer (yours). You will be required to change the remittance address that sends the check to our lock box.
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 issues.
