Clients are always asking about the benefits of financial factoring - those seem obvious - you can grow your sales revenues, purchase additional products such as key inventory requirements, and one other benefit that many Canadian business owners almost always forget. What is that key benefit?

Simply that you are now in a position to reduce the cost of this type of financing by utilizing cash to take supplier discounts as well as purchase your goods in a ' smarter and harder ' way .
