If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    There are B2B companies who will provide payment factoring (I think this is the right term) where they will pay you immediately when shown a valid purchase order and then they get paid by your client, for 2% of the total or so. For a more typical small business with employee costs, this is very significant, clearly us rich contractors aren't bothered

    Yes, you could sell the invoice to a factoring company but, as you say, unless there are cashflow issues, it's better to wait.
