If your partners do not always pay in time or ask to defer the payment, JSC “BSB Bank” propose you to take advantage of factoring service. Factoring allows Belarusian companies (suppliers, contractors, manufacturers, exporters) to carry out mutual settlements (with customers) on the optimally favorable conditions within the shortest possible period of time.
Factoring is financing against money claim cession where one party (factor) assumes liability to another party (creditor) under the factoring contract to enter into financial obligation between the creditor and the debtor (payer) in favor of the creditor by paying to the creditor the amount of the debtor’s financial obligation at a discount.
- The supplier delivers goods (provides services) to the Customer.
- The Customer is obliged to pay for the goods (services) with a delay.
- The Bank pays the amount of debt obligation of the Customer at a discount to the account of the Supplier on the next day after factoring contact signing. The supplier receives funds prior to the date specified in the contract concluded between the supplier and the Customer (replenish its working capital).
- The Customer pays within the time limits agreed with the Bank.
The types of Factoring are as follows:
- notification factoring, when the creditor notifies the debtor of factoring contract execution and transfer of creditor’s rights to the Bank;
- hidden factoring, when the creditor does not notify the debtor of factoring contract execution and creditor’s rights are not being transferred to the Bank;
- non-recourse factoring, when the Bank finances the creditor without the right of further return of outstanding money claim to the creditor. In this case the Bank bears the risk of bad debt;
- recourse factoring, when the Bank has the right to return the outstanding money claims to the Creditor, if the creditor accepts a bail for the debtor and bears the risk of bad debt.
Factoring transactions allow the Belarusian companies to solve such problems as:
- lack of working capital;
- significant accounts receivable;
- low turnover.
