What is Payables Finance?
Payables Finance allows you to set your suppliers up for early payment by discounting their receivable (i.e. your payable) on favourable terms as compared with their traditional method of financing.
This involves negotiating an attractive rate on their behalf with a third-party funder and providing a confirmation that you will pay on-time without any risk of commercial dispute. In return you may be able to negotiate longer commercial payment terms and increase the capacity of the supplier to produce and sell more product.
How does Payables Finance work?
