    Abstract

    The research carried out in this dissertation was to discover the underlying reasons for companies adopting debt factoring as a form of finance and whether it was a help or hindrance for small and medium sized companies to alleviate the problems associated with cash flow that can restrict a companies activities. The interviews carried out in the research followed a semi-structured approach to elaborate on findings and all interviewees and its associates will remain anonymous throughout the paper. A case study was included in the research to observe the influences debt factoring has on a specific company and to apply the observations obtained from the company to the theory from secondary research to see how debt factoring has changed since its initial introduction to the UK in the late 1960s. A conclusion was reached at the end of the paper based on findings from primary and secondary data although the limitations placed on the research, namely the time onstraint and lack of previous findings in this specific area, leads me to believe the theory of debt factoring still has a lot to discovered.
