Flexible Settlement

Demica's platform caters for different forms of Supply Chain Finance, including flexible settlement, as alternatives to or in combination with traditional reverse factoring in order to better fulfil the financial needs of Buyers.


How do these work?

Early Settlement

Early Settlement enables a Buyer to improve its P&L by automating the process of early settling invoices that offer discounts for prompt payment or those that have been assigned to a funder. This structure can be offered in combination with any other payables finance solutions including payment extension.

Payment Extension

Under Payment Extension, the Buyer does not renegotiate commercial terms with its suppliers who continue to be paid under current terms but instead seeks for a delay in the payment of the invoices beyond maturity to a financial institution. This structure can be applied to both discounted and non-discounted invoices.
