  • When submitting an invoice no later than 10 am, you can generally count on your account being credited on the same day.

    You can draw on your forfaiting line every working day. No prior notice needed.
  • Take the load off your equity and credit lines.

Protection from payment defaults

  • Sold receivables are fully insured up to existing limits.
  • Existing trade credit insurance may be integrated into the forfaiting structure, upgrading such insurance cover (e.g. CommerzFactoring may pay the excess when the receivable in question is sold).

Manage receivables

You remain in charge of receivables accounting and dunning. CommerzFactoring's forfaiting services are ideal for companies wishing to stay close to their clients through a well-organised receivables accounting department, or for companies preferring to retain control of their dunning for industry-specific reasons.
