Selective invoice discounting


Selective Invoice Discounting

Improve cash flow

This is invoice level financing, where either selected invoices or all invoices for selected preapproved debtors are sold to the bank to release funds and improve cash flow.

How it works

Bridge the cash flow gap

  • It is a short-term funding solution that gives start up or growing business's access to immediate cash rather than waiting 30 or more days for debtors to pay.
  • One or multiple invoices for selected quality debtors are 'sold' to release funds and improve the business's cash flow.
  • The facility requires disclosure to the debtor.
  • When the debtor pays the invoice, the facility balance is settled, but the facility remains open for continued future use.

Quick turnaround

No waiting around

Cash is disbursed within a maximum of 48 hours after completion of take-on process.
