    • How does factoring work?

      • The client submits the invoice and a signed notification to the buyer on transferring his outstanding claims.
      • The client (the seller) accepts the contracted advance payment
      • The factor calculates and charges the client for both the fee and the interest rate
      • The buyer pays the invoice amount to the factor’s account on the day the invoice is due
      • The factor pays to the client the difference between the amount financed and the amount received by the buyer
    • Factoring can be domestic and international. Both modalities include the following:

      • Factoring with right of recourse to the client – in case the claim is not collected from the debtor, the factor will sell the outstanding claims to the client
      • Factoring without right of recourse to the client – by buying the outstanding claims, the factor undertakes the risk of collecting payment from the debtor
      • Managing outstanding claims – administration of claims (without financing)
      • Supplier factoring – the factor takes on the invoices from the debtor, i.e. accepts the debtor’s obligation of paying the creditors
    • Financing is available for:

      • Existing and future undue outstanding claims from sold products/ services with a duration of up to 180 days
      • Legally sound claims, without legal burden
      • Transferable claims for which there is no transfer ban
    • Pricing

      • Request processing fee – payable after the signing of the contract as the percentage of the total limit approved; it is paid annually.
      • Factoring fee – calculated when the advance payment is paid as the percentage of the nominal value of the invoice being financed.
      • Factoring interest rate – key interest rate + margin, calculated to the advance payment amount paid to the client for the financing period; the advance payment amount is reduced by the amount of the calculated interest rate.
    • Benefits for the client

      • Liquidity – collecting payments for outstanding claims in a short term improves the liquidity of your company
      • Factoring is not a credit – it does not increase credit indebtedness, rather, it improves the structure of the client’s balance sheet through reducing the level of outstanding claims towards buyers
      • Better positioning compared to the competition – better payment terms for the client’s buyers from the terms offered by the competition – possibility of discounts for advance payment with the client’s suppliers
      • Increased employee efficiency/ lower administrative costs: services of professional management of outstanding claims, book entry and follow up of due invoices by the factor, enable the client to focus the time and energy on sales growth
      • Payment of outstanding claims – debtors/ buyers are more disciplined in settling their obligations when a bank is the creditor
      • Cash flow can be adjusted to the level of outstanding claims – the company’s business is secured by cash tied to sales. As business volume/sales volume increases, so does the amount of financing available for the client.
