Our services

What are the advantages of factoring?

Factoring is a financing alternative to classic bank financing with additional services. By selling your outstanding receivables, you receive immediate liquidity and are protected against bad debt losses. If you wish, we can take over debtor management, thus relieving your administration and saving you time and money.


For which companies is factoring suitable?

Factoring is particularly suitable for companies,

  • with strong growth
  • with rapidly increasing or fluctuating revenues
  • with high capital commitment in the receivables
  • cannot take advantage of purchasing advantages due to low liquidity
  • who want to insure themselves against bad debt losses
  • who want to reduce their costs through professional accounts receivable management

Which sectors are suitable for factoring and which are not?

Factoring is suitable for many sectors, in particular for companies in production, wholesale and services. Factoring is not suitable for companies that provide their services in sub-sections, such as in the construction industry, or in project business.

What requirements must I fulfil in order to be able to use factoring?

The following applies to all companies: the service on which the claim is based must be free of objections, complete and free of third-party rights. The other requirements are,

  • Receivables terms between 14 and 90 days
  • Receivables from commercial customers (B2B)
  • positive credit assessment of the factoring customer and his debtors

How quickly can I use factoring in my company?

Thanks to our short decision-making paths, we can decide on your financing request within a short period of time. After signing the contract and setting up your customer account, you can start factoring after just a few weeks.

Can I bring in an existing credit insurance?

You can retain your existing credit insurance, which is included in the factoring contract. In contrast to credit insurance, the factoring contract protects you 100% against bad debts.

How fast is the payment made?

Payment is usually made on the day the invoice is submitted.

What information do my customers need?

You only need to provide your customers with a new bank account to which the invoice amounts will be transferred.

Will the payment terms for my customers change?

The payment terms of your customers do not change. We adhere to the payment terms you set us and your customers.

Who issues the invoices to my customers?

You continue to write your invoices and forward them electronically to us.

What do I do if my customer accidentally paid me?

Please inform us if your customer has accidentally paid you and forward the amount to us.

How often can I submit my invoices?

You can decide for yourself how often you want to submit your invoices to us.

What does your dunning process look like?

As part of our full-service factoring, we take over the dunning and collection process for you. In consultation with you, we dun overdue receivables commercially. After an unsuccessful dunning procedure and after all dunning deadlines have expired, we initiate a collection procedure. In full-service factoring, you are protected against payment defaults and the invoice amount is paid out.
