DIFA chairman Wayne Thomason said the figures are an indication that the debtor finance industry is recovering well following a drop in values brought about by the GFC.

“The debtor finance industry is growing steadily and performing well when compared to overall business lending,” he said.

“Factoring has been particularly strong post-GFC, highlighting the robustness of this form of finance and its accessibility in all economic environments.

“The latest figures point to a solid finish to the calendar year, with the December quarter being the busiest time of year for our members as businesses turn to funding solutions that assist with freeing cash flow over the Christmas and New Year period.”
