How does
it work?

We process your time sheet information and then advance the cash to meet your payroll cost. Once your clients pay the invoice, you’ll get the balance owed to you, minus our fee. We can fund up to 95% of your unpaid invoice value, up to £5 million.

Recruitment Finance is for any timesheet-related company that is paid to credit terms and needs support with their back office administration and working capital in order to pay wages.

It’s a matter of timing. Wages for workers are usually paid on a weekly basis, but customer invoices are often paid monthly. This creates a cashflow gap, which can easily be solved using Recruitment Finance.

It’s done through a pay and bill system. You input your timesheet information and then we’ll release the funds you need in advance to meet your payroll cost. We’ll also deal with all the associated responsibilities in paying staff; handling pension contributions and dealing with HMRC.
All our products are designed to be completely flexible, so just tell us what you need. For example, it may be that with your cash flow taken care of, you want to expand. We can tailor a funding solution based on various products to help you achieve your goals.
Recruitment is all about building relationships, which is why we’ll take the time to build a relationship with you. You’ll have the support of a dedicated Relationship Manager who will tailor finance to exactly match the needs of your business – and who can respond quickly in any situation. Everything we do is designed to make your life easier.
