At a glance

Factoring requirements
  • Your company generates annual revenues of at least €2.5 million and has purchasable receivables exceeding €300,000 vis-à-vis commercial debtors.
  • The delivery/performance underlying the receivable was rendered prior to billing;
  • the receivables are undisputed, ideally subject to German law, and include terms of credit of no more than 120 days.

We offer three types of factoring, which we can tailor to your individual needs.

Inter-Credit® Factoring: focus on liquidity and safety

This type of factoring focuses on providing liquidity and protecting you from del credere risk. You remain in charge of receivables accounting and dunning – an ideal solution for companies with sufficient resources and a good set-up in this area.

Smart-service factoring: includes everything but dunning

When using this type of factoring, your company remains in charge of dunning, whilst we assume responsibility for receivables accounting. This allows you to contact your clients directly when invoices are overdue.

Full-service factoring: the complete package

This type of factoring offers all factoring service components, including receivables management in its entirety. Debtors are informed of the sale of receivables; silent factoring is therefore not possible in this case.

We will conduct a first analysis of the receivables portfolio, and then lay out the details of the transaction structure (such as processes and terms and conditions) together with you. The mandate is based on the results of this process.

Step 2

The review covers the receivables portfolio, booking processes and other factoring-specific aspects, plus the economic circumstances. The binding commitment defines payment terms for the implementation.

Step 3

Signing of contracts, obtain confirmations & agreements from third parties (if applicable), programme interfaces, run test data. As soon as debtor master data are entered, limits established & any additional requirements fulfilled, you are ready.
