What is Payroll Funding and How Does it Work?

Payroll obligations is just one of the many challenges that businesses are faced with today as they meet their growth needs. Payroll funding is a tool that allows your company to finance invoices in order to make payroll. When customers and clients fall behind on their payments, this can jeopardize your payroll and impact your cash flow. Unless you have backup funding available, you risk keeping your finances on track.

Invoice factoring can provide payroll funding to cash strapped businesses by allowing the business to sell accounts receivable in exchange for a lump sum of cash. The process is fast and simple. In some cases, businesses can receive the money in as little as 48 hours, allowing them to meet their payroll funding obligations and pay their employees for all their hard work.

The Difference Between Payroll Advance and Payroll Funding

A payroll advance refers to a personal loan product that allows an individual to receive an advance from a future paycheck, usually in exchange for a flat fee. These loans have a repayment requirement, usually in two to four weeks, and carry a relatively high interest rate.  If someone defaults on a payroll advance, there are steps that are taken by the lender to recover those funds including collections activities and negative reporting to credit bureaus.

Payroll funding, on the other hand, refers to a process whereby a business obtains the cash necessary to cover its payroll obligations. Most companies have a reserve in their bank accounts to cover their payroll obligations. However, if a business lacks the necessary funds to cover their payroll, they can sell invoices to a factor to receive payroll funding. Payroll funding through an accounts receivable financing company, like Universal Funding, is not a loan and there are no repayment obligations. Since there is no repayment obligation, there is no risk of default or negative credit reporting. It is a simple sales transaction that helps companies meet their payroll obligations and keeps their businesses running smoothly.
