Factoring and Financial Solutions

FAQ

How long has Accounts Receivable Funding been available?

Accounts Receivable Funding or Factoring is one of the oldest forms of financing. It has been around since the Greeks and Romans. The Pilgrims used it to come to America. In the Industrial Revolution, the textile and garment industries used it extensively. Then in the 1980’s other large companies used it to grow their businesses. Finally, in the 1990’s small and mid-sized companies that extend credit terms to their customers realized the benefits of this funding option and now it is becoming a very viable financing solution for all types of businesses.

What types of receivables are acceptable?

Just about any valid invoice for services performed or product delivered is acceptable.

What is required before an invoice may be funded?

Your customer must be creditworthy and your product or service must be completed, delivered, and accepted by that customer.

Do we bill on our letterhead or yours?

You continue to bill normally. Checks are usually made payable to Lexx Funding, Inc. FPO your company.

Are government receivables acceptable?

Yes, nearly 50% of our business is government or municipal related. As a result, we are experts in this specialized area.

Must I agree to finance a minimum volume of future receivables?

No, finance one invoice or as many as you need to meet your cash flow needs. Stop when you wish, or continue as needed.

What is the smallest invoice that we can submit?

We specialize in small invoices as low as $1000. Usually smaller invoices are batched together. Our “sweet spot” is an invoice between $4000 and $15,000. We can help with larger invoices too.

Can we qualify if we already have existing credit lines or SBA loans?

Yes! We complement and work in cooperation with your existing lenders to enable you to access even larger amounts of funding.

Does receivables financing make good business sense?

Yes! Thousands of firms use receivables-based financing when cash flow dries up due to slow paying customers or when traditional financing is either unavailable or insufficient to fund needed growth. Our “credit line” is exceptional in its speed, ease, and flexibility. Factoring may be the difference of a small company surviving and growing or going out of business.

What will my customers think?

Receivables-based financing is used by many of the largest corporations in the world to improve cash flow, support growth, and increase profits. Many of your customers may use this service themselves and others have become familiar with it through vendors. The fact that you qualify for this “credit line” makes a strong positive statement.

Can we qualify even if we are just starting in business and have no credit history?

Yes, you can if you have credit worthy customers.

What happens if my customer doesn’t pay the invoice?

Lexx Funding is a recourse funding source. Your company will have to reimburse us either by having the invoice deducted from the next advance or replacing it with another collectable invoice.

Does Lexx Funding verify invoices with my customers?

Yes. As part of the setting-up process, you will send a notification letter to your customer to let them know that you are now working with us. We will supply the form letter. You will put it on your letterhead and send it to your customer. Invoice verification is an essential, and accepted part of funding. Because factors verify invoices with customers, they can tell clients if there is a customer service problem right away. A non-factoring client may not notice the problem until the invoice becomes past due. By that time, it may be too late to save the account.

How long does it take to receive the first funding?

The initial funding takes between 5-7 business days after we receive your signed contract. After the initial funding, your company can receive funds within 24 hours after invoice verification.

How is accounts receivable funding different than accounts receivable financing from a bank?

Lexx Funding will focus on the creditworthiness of your customers while banks will focus on your company’s financial history and cash flow. Since Accounts Receivable Funding is not a loan, it does not appear on your company’s balance sheet. Lexx can make a quick funding decision, while banks may take weeks to approve a loan.

Do I have to pay a fee to have my application processed?

No. Lexx Funding does not charge an application fee.

 

OUR CLIENTS SPEAK FOR US

  • “In today’s world there seems there are too many things to complain about and not much to have grateful for.  That is why I am writing you today.  I can’t begin to tell how instrumental Lexx Funding has been to my company.  With the economy as it is today it seems like more and more companies are not paying their bills on time as they normally have in the past.  I see more and more “slow paying” customers daily.  The results of this are that my company can’t make its financial obligation on a timely basis as we pride ourselves in.  This is where your company is a god send.  Because of your service, when I fax my invoices to you I have money to meet my expenses such as payroll and fuel on time.  It is a pleasure doing business with you and I would like to thank you for taking away all those sleepless nights.”

    Terry Nelson  Cornerstone Transportation 

  • “Thank you so very much for the outstanding accounts receivable service you have provided my company for more than two years.

    I was introduced to Lexx Funding at a time when we were really struggling to survive and the bureaucracy of payment processing had almost forced our doors to close.  Your prompt and professional attention to handling our accounts has led to an improved financial condition and continuous growth for the company.  We started with one major account, nearly doubled our revenue with a second, and are now negotiating a third.

    In the current economic climate, Lexx Funding has made the difference for us between success and failure.  Again, thank you for all you do to support small businesses!”

    Nancy R. Tidwell, President  NRT & Associates, Inc. 

  • “I wanted to thank you personally for helping me on my financing.  Before I met you, I was desperately searching for funds to support my project.  The success of this project was extremely important for my family and me.  Every bank and credit union I visited I was turned down.  Nobody wanted to help me.  I was very frustrated, disappointed, and ready to give up.  Then I met you.  You changed my life forever.  You helped me when nobody did.  You were extremely friendly and answered all my questions with patience and clarity.  I know how important it is to make a good impression and you did just that.  You have my highest rating!!!  Furthermore, I am happy to say that my experience was great and I would be happy to work with your company again in the future for all my financing needs.  Additionally, I will recommend Lexx Funding, Inc. to all my friends. God bless you and your family.  Thank you again for your understanding and support.”

  • “This is just a note to let you know how much my company appreciates your accounts receivable financing services.  As you know, I had just started my company when I first met you.  Banks would not lend me the funding that I needed to start and grow my staffing company.  A large factor turned me down because my account was too small.  Lexx Funding, your company, has been factoring my receivables for over six months.  Things could not have gone more smoothly.  I have met every payroll on time and that is very important to me and to my employees.

    With your help, my company is a growing company with a bright future.  I hope to continue having Lexx Funding handle my accounts receivables.”

  • I want to tell you how much I appreciate the services of your company.  As you know, I had a government contract and had no money to fulfill it.  This was my last chance.  If I did not do this job, I would not get another one.  I did not know where to turn.  Finally, my supervisor told me about you and said that other companies were using your services.  I called you and explained my situation to you.  You immediately went into action and soon I had the money that I needed to complete the job.  Now I am on my second contract and have a third one waiting to go.

    Thank you so much for saving my company.  It really makes me proud to think that I am on the path to a successful year.”

  • I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about Lexx Funding.  We were referred to them by our accountant.  He thought it would help us by giving a more consistent and reliable cash flow in order to meet our ongoing expenses such as payroll, fuel, repairs, etc.  Rather than waiting 30 to 90 days to get paid by the companies we work for.

    They also help us check out the companies we are thinking of working for in order to help ensure they are legitimate, reputable and as stable as possible in today’s economy.

    Joy Ann and Don have been a joy and a blessing to work with.  They are honest, fair and always willing to offer help and/or advice to help meet our ever changing needs.  They are always there when we need them and if for some reason they will be unavailable, they do let us know in advance.  I would definitely recommend them.  And I thank them for all of their help.  I truly feel that we are not just business associates but friends as well.

  • “I, Charles Jones of C. Jones Wrecking & Trucking Co., would like to recommend Joy Ann Venverloh of Lexx Funding, Inc., as Financial Services Champion of the Year 2010.  I have been incorporated as a business owner with the City of St. Louis since 1999 and I have never encountered a more business minded individual as Mrs. Venverloh.  I was referred to Lexx Funding by another business owner and I must say it was dream come true.  As I had previously bid on and completed contracts before, I would have had to save that money to complete the next contract, getting behind on bills, being garnished and having the potential for my business to sink further in debt while waiting for my money to come in.  With the help of Lexx Funding, I have been able to get my business back on track.  I have used factoring companies before in the past for trucking expenses but never did I imagine that a factoring company even existed for small business factoring.  I have been introduced to the idea of upfront financing to complete the job before completing the job, and it has truly been a blessing.  I plan on using Joy Ann Venverloh and Lexx Funding for the remainder of my business endeavors and will recommend her to any and everyone.  I give Mrs. Venverloh of Lexx Funding “ten stars” in excellent customer service, reliability, productivity, commitment and dedication.  I consider her to be more than a business woman but a true friend, because she truly cares about what happens to you in the advancement of your company.  It has truly been an honor to work with Joy Ann and this is why I would like to see her become the Financial Services Champion of the Year 2010.”
