How invoice finance works

Why we work with MarketFinance to offer flexible funding

We share a united mission with MarketFinance to empower businesses with innovative forms of finance that enable them to achieve their ambitions.

Invoice finance for construction

A construction firm needed fast access to working capital to fund wages and upfront costs for several new contracts, with fortnightly invoicing and 30-day terms. Following a three-way call with the company, its Barclays Relationship Manager and MarketFinance on Friday afternoon, the company was funding its first invoice before the end of the following week, with a £60k limit. 

Invoice finance for consultants

A consultancy firm used funding from MarketFinance to help it ride out a small revenue dip. A referral from Barclays resulted in access to a £350k facility within just four days. With no fixed-term contract and the flexibility to choose invoices to fund, the business used the facility as fuel to recover and grow its turnover.

How to apply

For flexible funding

Available to UK-registered business-to-business limited companies or LLPs
