    Highlighting the achievements and products of Close Brothers Invoice FinanceVoting has recently opened for the Business Moneyfacts Awards 2019. Close Brothers Invoice Finance, part of the FTSE 250 Close Brothers merchant bank, have been the winners of the award for the Best Factoring & invoice Discounting provider, for the last 5 consecutive years.

    Close Brothers Invoice Finance - IDeal™

    The IDeal™ product remains their flagship, award winning invoice discounting proposition, allowing customers to upload their entire sales ledger from their accounting package, avoiding the need for month end reconciliations. The upload process can even run in the background so that their client has no need to do anything to effect the upload of their latest sales ledger.

    In addition to invoice discounting, they also offer full service factoring products (prepayments with a credit control service), asset based lending and bad debt protection (which can be added onto their other products).

    Liquidity Plus
