Bring Cash Flows Forward
Invoice factoring allows companies to receive cash upfront as opposed to waiting up to 90+ days for invoices to be paid, allowing clients to focus on what really matters – growing their business
Finance Business Growth
With additional cash on hand, businesses can focus on growing their business by hiring additional employees, buying additional equipment and buying additional inventory

What if my personal credit isn’t very strong?
Don’t sweat! Although we do review personal credit, one of the great things about factoring is that we rely the most heavily on the credit-worthiness of your customers. If you work for quality companies that have good commercial credit, it’s unlikely your personal credit will affect our ability to fund.
Will Velocity communicate with my customer?
Throughout the relationship, Velocity may reach out to your customer to update the payment address on file, submit or verify invoices, and manage collections. With Velocity taking on some of invoice management duties, you’ll have more time to focus on building your company. With that in mind, we also understand how important your customer relationship is to your business so it is always a top priority for our team that any communication with your customer is courteous and professional.
Do I have to factor all of my invoices?
No, you choose which accounts to factor. With no monthly minimums, you can factor as much or as little as you need on approved accounts.
Do you charge to review credit of my potential new customers?
No. We believe, whether you plan to factor them or not, it’s in everyone’s best interest for our clients to have good credit information available to them when making the decision to do business with a new customer.
What happens if I’m already factoring or receiving financing from another company?
We’re happy to help you review your current financing arrangement. If a buyout is appropriate, Velocity will work with your current finance company as well as your customers to ensure the smoothest transition possible for you.
Can I visit your office?
Absolutely! In fact, we’d love to visit with you in person, whether you are an existing or a potential customer. Since we are located in downtown Midland, we are easily accessible to all of our customers in West Texas and the surrounding area.
