Auctioning receivables: on your terms or better

Initial situation

Invoice amount:
100,000 euros
(with a Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) of 45 days)

Own starting price:
99,400 euros
(discount: 0.6 % compared to all-in-one-factoring margin)


End of auction

Immediate payout of the second-highest bid plus an increment (one currency unit).

In this example you will receive:
99,670 + 1 = 99,671 euros

Coming soon: Early Payments

New feature for even more flexibility

With Early Payments, suppliers can optionally offer their open trade receivables to their debtors for early payout, who then obtain individual cash discounts. If no Early Payment is agreed, the supplier can offer their trade receivables to a large investor base. Thus they are independent from the debtor’s liquidity or their willingness to make an early payment.

By using their liquidity with Early Payments, debtors gain (additional) cash discounts on their liabilities. In times without excess liquidity, other investors, i. e. institutional investors, can support suppliers by providing financial backings.

External financing by means of auction or Early Payment by the debtor? Suppliers and debtors can individually decide for each invoice, which better suits their company’s current situation.
