WHILE Australian SMEs are increasingly using invoice finance to improve working capital and grow their businesses, common misconceptions remain about how fees are calculated.
One of the most common questions asked is “what is your interest rate”.
OptiPay’s answer is always the same.
Interest is not charged at all – because OptiPay is not a bank and does not force businesses into ongoing loan facilities.
It simply buys an invoice, or group of invoices, from you at slightly less than their face value.
For example, you offer to sell us an invoice worth $100,000. We might buy it for $95,000. The difference is our “invoice discount rate”.
Usually, it represents between 3% and 5% of the full invoice amount.
In some circumstances, it might be a little more, but OptiPay explains why well in advance of the transaction. There are no surprises or backflips .
Invoice finance can often be approved and in place in a matter of days, and once an account is established, funds can usually be available within 24 hours.
