Does anybody have any experience of factoring with single invoices (also known as single invoice discounting / finance)?

If so, I'd be grateful for any insights, guidance on typical fees / commission and any recommendations.

I have a substantial unpaid invoice and am wondering whether this would be more effective than the small claims court.

Factoring is usually for cash flow management, not collection. A factor would not normally take on a doubtful account. For a percentage cut, the factor will take on your accounts receivable and pay you immediately, instead of having to wait 30-60 days.
