As economic conditions continue to create invoice collection challenges, small businesses leveraging factoring gain an edge.

When business owners stop hemorrhaging money, particularly while bad debt rates are sky-high for other businesses, they’re floored.”

EL PASO, TEXAS, USA, February 9, 2024 / — Leading invoice funding company Viva Capital says small businesses are seeing unexpected benefits from invoice factoring that help them gain an edge despite current economic conditions. Additional coverage of the topic is available in “5 Benefits Factoring Companies Offer Other Than Factoring,” which is now live on

The Viva Capital report comes on the heels of a recent Atradius report, which indicates delinquent B2B payments and bad debt are on the rise. More than half of all invoices are now overdue, and nine percent of invoiced balances are written off as bad debt. Surveys show the potential of a prolonged global economic downturn remains a chief concern for business owners.

These cash flow challenges have created a surge in interest in invoice factoring, an alternative funding solution that allows businesses to accelerate payment on their B2B invoices. The process involves selling invoices to a factoring company. The business’s customers clear the balances as invoices are paid. This means most businesses qualify, even when they’ve been denied loans. Plus, no debt accrues, a major boon as interest rates soar.

“It’s often the reduction of bad debt that surprises businesses the most,” explains Armando Armendariz, Director of Business Development and Partner of Viva Capital. “When business owners stop hemorrhaging money, particularly while bad debt rates are sky-high for other businesses, they’re floored.”

Armendariz says bad debt reductions are often seen in businesses that leverage factoring because factoring companies check their customers’ credit before factoring and offer guidance that helps minimize risk when extending trade credit. He notes that businesses typically see a reduction in overhead costs related to collections, too.

“We see a lot of small businesses spending around 15 hours each week on invoice-related tasks like chasing payments,” Armendariz continues. “Much of that simply evaporates when they factor because we take care of collecting balances for our clients, so their labor costs reduce and their ability to focus on their business improves.”
