Reverse Factoring

What is Reverse Factoring?

Also known as supply chain finance or supplier finance, reverse factoring involves a funder advancing payment to its clients’ suppliers at an accelerated rate, giving both parties a number of benefits.

Reverse factoring differs from traditional factoring in that it is the buyer, not the supplier who initiates the funding. It is designed to provide value to all three parties involved: The buyer, the supplier and the funding facility.

The supplier, for instance, can trade with customers that demand longer payment terms than normal without tying up cash flow for long periods, accessing up to 100% of the invoice value well in advance of its due date. The buyer, meanwhile, can take advantage of early settlement discounts and foster strong relationships with their suppliers.

The factoring company creates a more durable business relationship, as all parties benefit. When working with large ordering companies, they are also able to reach suppliers more easily than reaching out to each supplier company individually.

How does reverse factoring work?

  1. A business orders goods from their supplier
  2. The goods are sent and an invoice is sent to the customer
  3. The customer approves the invoice and sends it to the reverse factoring provider
  4. The invoice value is advanced to the supplier
  5. The customer pays the invoice value to the funder when it becomes due
