Invoice Discount Finance


Invoice discount finance is an arrangement in which the exporter assigns the receivables to obtain funds on a limited recourse basis or non–recourse basis. The purchasing bank typically funds the value of the receivables less discount to the exporter and receives full payment on the receivables from the importer.

This arrangement, which improves the exporter’s short–term liquidity position, could be used as an off–balance sheet treatment, subject to consultations with your local accounting, tax and legal advisors.
