Benefits of Supply Chain Finance

Buy now, pay over time, mitigate risks and most importantly, free up working capital.

How supply chain finance helps buyers:

  • Secure early settlement discounts from suppliers whilst still paying us 30-90 days later.
  • Easy credit approval and set-up process.
  • Immediate increase in your gross profit margins and working capital position.
  • Improved supplier relations and financial strength of your supply chain.
  • Greater Purchasing Power – the extended trading terms enable you to increase your purchase orders in line with market opportunities.
  • Unsecured, off-balance sheet facility.
  • No Property Security required.

How supply chain finance helps suppliers:

  • Suppliers get access to cash immediately – no longer need to wait 30 to 60+ days to receive your payment.
  • Reduction of trade receivables and an immediate increase in their cash position.
  • Generally cheaper than invoice finance or invoice discounting.
  • Strong co-operation between your company and the supplier creates a competitive advantage.
  • Only elect to take the early payment, when needed.
  • Higher likelihood of suppliers getting more business as suppliers have upfront cash flow to fund their purchases.
  • Eliminates any potential payment disputes 30-60+ days later from the buyer.

How does it work?

The key concept behind supply chain finance is to pay your suppliers as quickly as possible in order to take advantage of early settlement discounts. In simple terms, it allows the buyer (you or your business) to pay later and the supplier to secure payments earlier, allowing both parties to improve their working capital position.
