In need of some immediate contractor funding for your recruitment agency?

We have the perfect funding and administration solution for you, our TBOS Freedom plan.

If you are a recruiter that handles a number of contract placements, you will know your agency needs fluid financing. Not many recruiters will be able to cover paying contractors out of their own pocket which is why they seek out invoice finance, this is to cover their contractor payments until they receive payment from their clients. With that said, many recruiters will opt to use a Pay & Bill company to facilitate their contract placements, however with this option they are likely to pay a fee which is a percentage of each invoice value, which as you can imagine, can stack up after a period of time.

The other options for invoice finance...

  • Invoice Finance through Banks/Factoring Companies
    If you apply for invoice finance through your bank, you can expect the contract they set up to last 12-24 months. This will also come with minimum monthly fees and a significant set-up cost at the very beginning. Additionally, this type of funding can take 3-6 weeks to set up.
  • Invoice Finance through Third Parties
    Most third party providers consist of Pay & Bill companies and also require a long term sign-up period. As these companies fund 100% of the debt it can also make it difficult for the recruiter to leave their solution as the new provider will have to pay off the debt in full. These companies will also charge their fees based on a percentage of each invoice value.

In each case, you have close to the same problem, you’re committed to a long term contract with considerable costs associated. Even if you decide to get out of the contract placement game or it doesn’t take off as you have hoped, taking the chance with either invoice finance supplier can hurt your bottom line for up to two years.

Needless to say, a lot of recruiters pass on the contractor route because it runs the risk of these hidden costs. For this reason, TBOS has specifically designed a back-office and funding solution which is not only cost-effective but covers the complete administration of processing contractors.
