The practice of factoring dates back to ancient Rome, where citizens were known to sell promissory notes at a discount. Perhaps that’s how they financed the Coliseum.
Factoring is the “purchase” of a “client’s” accounts receivable, or invoices, at a discount. It is not a loan. As opposed to general bank lending, factoring is far less regulated business and factors charge whatever the market will bear.
In today’s credit-restricted market, the factoring business is booming. Factors often use independent agents to keep sales costs low and factoring has proven to be a recession-proof business.
In most commercial transactions, payment is accomplished through the use of a funds transfer. These transactions are subject to Article 4A of the Uniform Commercial Code, which has been adopted by all 50 states and governs the rights and obligations of all parties to the transfer. Article 4A is contract law, meaning once a business signs a contract they are generally bound to those terms. Too many businesses have suffered substantial losses because they did not understand the liability and obligations they are under when they signed the contract for funds transfer services. This webinar is developed specifically for businesses using, or that plan to use, commercial funds transfer services. The primer helps attendees understand how Article 4A affects transfers, provisions that can be altered by contract, how liability for unauthorized transfers is allocated, and more.

Let’s face it, for many people credit scores are a mystery. Why does one consumer have a 700+ FICO with late payments and past collections when another consumer’s score, with clean payment history is 50 points lower? And why is the credit score we just pulled for a consumer so much different than the one they received this month from their credit card company? If you have these questions too you are not alone.
In this course we are going to dive as deep as we can in an hour and one half, to unravel the mystery behind the FICO credit score. The information provided is invaluable which every employee who works with credit reports and consumers should have.

Dealing with nonresident alien accountholders adds another layer of issues to account opening, maintenance, and reporting.
Since the USA PATRIOT Act, Customer Identification Program (CIP) law passed, opening these accounts and covering the required documentation and identification bases makes dealing with these accounts more challenging than ever. This issue is also a Bank Secrecy Act exam "hot spot" with the regulators as nonresident alien accounts are considered to be high risk.
This session will address the following questions about procedures and your bank: What does the law say about identifying nonresident aliens? What type of identification is being used around the country to open accounts? What are the proper procedures for W-8 reporting? What role does Office of Foreign Assets and Control (OFAC) play in your new accounts procedures? If these questions have not been answered to your satisfaction in your bank this session is a must.
