RBS Factoring receipts/payments

nonsensical payments

Didn't find your answer?

This is wierd - all ideas welcome at this point ...

- Co A & Co B are related.

- A factors it's invoices, B doesn't

The only paperwork that I have is purchase & sales invoices and bank statements. (NB It's all historical and there's no way of getting further information, the owners & managers have all changed and you know what factoring companies are like once the account has been shut)

1. A receives money from a customer

2. A transfers money to B

3. B pays money out to RBS Invoice Finance

I assume that the customer has accidently paid A rather than RBS and this is a roundabout way of getting the money back to RBS. BUT, there are no RBS drawdowns. At all. I have between 3 & 5 years of bank statements for multiple accounts across the 2 companies and not a single receipt from RBS. No sales invoices for those amounts either.

Pulling my few remaining hairs out here - anyone have a clue what is going on?

What's the nature of the business and were all invoices factored or just a segment?

It's just been suggested by a member of staff that RBS was the silent factor being used by the back office company that B (temp recruiter) used to run it's sales & direct wages.

I do think that this is the answer (it at least makes sense), so just throwing it out there for general knowledge.

Temp agency with outsourced payroll was going to be my guess. Good luck

Why does it have to be anything to do with sales? Can't B just be paying a purchase invoice to a supplier who has factored their invoices with RBS?
