Accounts receivable financing

A short-term financing method in which accounts receivable are collateral for cash advances. See: Factoring.

Accounts Receivable Financing

The selling of a firm's accounts receivable to a third party, known as a factor. If a firm is not confident in its ability to collect on its credit sales, it may sell the right to receive payment to the factor at a discount. The factor then assumes the credit risk associated with the accounts receivable. This allows the firm access to working capital immediately, which is important especially if the firm might otherwise have a cash flow problem. The price of accounts receivable financing is determined by the creditworthiness of the firm's customer, not of the firm itself. See also: Debt assignment.

With the purpose of inquiring whether the data collected verifies the hypotheses set out, it was decided to use, on one hand, a Confirmatory Factorial Analysis (CFA), which allows to confirm the relationship between the six dimensions regarding Job Satisfaction and, on the other, to perform a Second Level Confirmatory Factorial Analysis, which allows to see whether Job Satisfaction is actually manifested through the six dimensions presented in Figure 1.

The objectives of this research are: (i) discuss and explain how to deal with the analysis of experiments conducted in completely randomized design (CRD) and split double factorial design with additional treatment in the plot; (ii) program a function able to perform such analysis in a single run, using R language (R CORE TEAM, 2014); and (iii) illustrate the discussion analyzing data from an experiment on post-harvest of Niagara grapes.
