How Open Invoices Can Hurt Your Business

For mid-size businesses that invoice regularly, open invoices can be a pain when you are in need of money. An open invoice is one that has not yet been paid in full. There are many different reasons why an invoice may be open. It could be that a customer has terms and is not yet required to have made all of their payments. It may be open because a customer has chosen not to make any more payments, leaving your business to track them down and request payments. Open invoices can hurt your business by affecting your cash flow. You can increase cash flow with factoring your open invoices through Universal Funding.

Cash Flow Is Necessary

Without cash flow, your business is either stuck where it is or backpedaling. Open invoices are cash you are owed, but not paid. You need that cash.
