Our cleaning company requested us to make check payable to their account receivable factoring company. We receive an invoice from the factoring company for the work done by the cleaning co. Do we have to send the 1099-Misc even though we get the invoice. If yes, who gets it?
Family Law Attorney
Yes, anytime you pay more than $600 to any entity or person except corporations you must 1099.
Receipt of an invoice does not preclude an otherwise required 1099, which you will be required to file unless an exception applies (e.g., a corporate recipient, but it's still best practice to obtain where possible).
You always 1099 a payment recipient--in this case, the factoring company.
General Practice Lawyer
Yes - and if I were keeping the records, I would record the entity as the cleaning company, with a billing address of the billing company - with the 1099 going to the cleaning company.
