Supply Chain Financing

  • Opportunity for the strong buyers to improve their working capital and expect longer payment terms
  • Buyer driven relationship to include SEB in the Supply Chain
  • Sellers can improve their funding on the basis of strong buyer’s credit rating and get payment after buyer’s approval of invoices.

Recourse factoring, where sellers are obliged to pay invoice after 30 days overdue if buyer has not made the payment to the bank. 

SEB together with a trusted insurance partner will handle the debt collection if a buyer fails to pay an invoice. SEB is the beneficiary in the insurance contract. Insurance does not indemnify for disputed invoices. Making the sales contract as accurate as possible and documenting all communication between the parties makes the resolution of possible disputes easier.

If you have already entered into a valid credit insurance contract yourself, SEB offers you full recourse factoring. In such a case, you refund the advance payment to SEB if the buyer is in debt and you have to follow the terms and conditions agreed with your insurer in any actions required under the insurance contract. SEB will be the beneficiary in the insurance contract.

Factoring limits and sellers included in the program are subject to buyer's decision.

How does factoring work?

  • Seller issues the invoice and sends the copy to SEB
  • SEB usually pays the advance part of the invoice to your current account on the same day
  • The buyer pays the invoice to SEB at due date
  • SEB pays to the seller the difference in the advance part and the amount received from the buyer
