Factoring for Oil and Gas – A Great Financing Tool

Posted by Aaron Zahedani on Fri, Feb 14, 2014 @ 08:12 AM

Opportunities in the oil and gas sector are set to increase in 2014 – find out how invoice factoring can help your business keep up.

Firstly, what is all the hype about?

According to a recent article in CNN Money, the US is set to overtake Russia as the biggest oil producer outside OPEC during 2014. The reason? There has been a huge investment in the production of shale gas in the US. This increased investment is partly due to new technologies, such as hydraulic fracking, that make the extraction of oil and gas from shale rock commercially viable.

The new processes involving shale oil and gas excavation are driving plenty of business for many companies involved in the oil and gas industry. The International Energy Agency estimates that the US will produce more than 11 billion barrels of oil and natural gas liquids per day in the second quarter of 2014.

Invoice Factoring Vs. Merchant Cash Advances – What’s the deal?

Posted by Gil Oliva on Fri, Feb 07, 2014 @ 07:55 AM

You may have heard the latest buzz doing the rounds, a financing tool, known as merchant cash advance, or among other titles, credit card factoring. What is it and how does it compare to invoice factoring?

Similar to accounts receivable financing, a merchant cash advance is not a loan, rather a cash advance, as the title would suggest. Unlike invoice factoring, money is not advanced as a result of invoices issued to customers; it is money advanced on future credit card receipts. Sales are projected and have not yet taken place.

While not a new concept, merchant cash advances have become a popular option for small business owners needing fast access to capital. The premiums for this service can be high – sometimes 30% or more on the money advanced – but there are plenty of businesses prepared to pay the price.
