Receivables Finance

Receivables Finance is a service that provides businesses with early access to funds that are due from customers, improving liquidity and facilitating cash flow management. This financing can be structured with or without recourse, which impacts the risk distribution between the business and the financier.


Factoring is a receivables finance solution where a business can avail immediate liquidity against their invoices. It unlocks the potential of your receivables by allowing you sufficient cash flow to grow your business. Factoring also offers other services such as ledger management and collection services which allows you more time to focus on your sales.

  • With recourse: The business remains liable if the customer fails to pay the invoice. This means that if the customer defaults, the financier can seek repayment from the business.
  • Without recourse: The financier assumes the risk of non-payment by the customer. In this arrangement, the business is not liable if the customer fails to pay the invoice, offering greater risk protection.
  • Immediate access to funds
  • Collection management and credit control can be outsourced
  • With recourse factoring typically offers lower fees due to the reduced risk for the financier
  • Without recourse provides credit risk protection against non-payment of receivable by debtors

Whether you choose 'with or without' recourse, factoring can significantly improve your business's cash flow, provide credit management and lower associated risks.

Supply Chain Finance

Supply Chain Finance optimises cash flow by allowing businesses to avail extended credit terms for their purchasers while allowing the option for their suppliers to encash their receivables upfront. This creates a win-win situation for both buyers and suppliers by enhancing the efficiency of the supply chain financing. Our SCF solution provides early payment to suppliers against invoices approved by the buyer, improving the supplier's cash flow without impacting the buyer's own liquidity.



  • Strengthens the supply chain by providing liquidity to suppliers
  • Does not affect the buyer's cash position as payment terms are extended
  • Improves relationship with suppliers through financial support

Our Supplier Finance Solutions foster a strong and resilient supply chain, ensuing continuity and efficiency in operations while optimising working capital.
