Upload your invoice

Upload your invoice

You can upload an invoice file, which our system
will automatically pull details from. Alternatively,
you can enter the invoice details manually.

Unlike traditional invoice factoring, we don't ask
you to finance your whole sales ledger, so you can use
us as and when you need financing.

We use discreet online invoice verification tool to check your
invoices with your customer.

The tool will send your customer
