    WHAT THE **** IS DEBT FACTORING? I ASKED MY TEACHER AFTER THE EXAM AND HE DIDNT EVEN KNOW? Does anyone know what it is? I wrote about the overdraft, is that right?

    Usually on the mark scheme they will have a lot of answers, so I am sure you will be fine. Even if you said it was in pounds.

    I got adverse 80.9 or something..

    Debt factoring I put that it was when the business receives immediate cash and then has to pay charge because it receives money immediately.. and said it was good for them as they had 35 trade credit to customers and only 15 days receiving cash from suppliers therefore their cash flow will be minus and debt factoring will help them keep more inflows and for drawback said it costs them a lot due to (charges) and also said that their position is already deteriorating..
    Anyone put thiss??

    You're not suppose to be discussing the exam! Some people haven't even took it yet so you're just making it easier for them.
    good point!

    Unfortunatelly, u are wrong, they do not pay anything as "charge"
    Also, ud better say that debt factoring provides maximum 80% , in rare cases 85-90% of debt as immidiate cash, and caltulate those % of the debt from customres ^^

    There isn't much to discuss really, every point is right, as long as it is relevant.

    Has anyone phoned up AQA to see what is likely to come up? My friend said he phoned them and they said variance is likely to pop up.

    Don't know if anyone has linked this, but this could be useful:

    Looks like my friend was right, glad I listened to him :cool:
