Receivables Finance

Improve your cash flows and enhance forecasting. If qualified, access up to 90 per cent of invoice values as soon as they are issued. Receivables finance is available in most major currencies and as early as the next business day. You can release cash previously caught in the sales cycle to cover day-to-day expenses or pay suppliers faster thereby negotiating more favourable rates and terms. With the flexibility to access the entire amount available or draw down only what you need, receivables finance is also an effective strategy for self-funding growth.
