Reverse Factoring

ACFI Group specialises in the structuring, implementation and deployment of Reverse Factoring programmes with a tailored, comprehensive and innovative approach.

Reverse Factoring

Reverse Factoring is a Supply Chain Finance programme initiated by a Customer (Buyer) and involving its suppliers.

Previously reserved for very large companies and still not very widespread, Reverse Factoring is now in vogue because it secures, finances and ultimately reduces inter-company credit.

Reverse Factoring allows a Buyer to have invoices due to its suppliers paid quickly by a financial institution in order to :

Securing your supplies

Financing your growth

Giving visibility and funding to its suppliers

Negotiate repayment terms with the financial institution

Challenges of a Reverse Factoring programme

win/win: 2 people shake hands

A Reverse Factoring programme is a win/win relationship for the client and its suppliers. It strengthens their commercial partnership, facilitates their administrative exchanges and secures their financial transactions.

Reverse Factoring is based on the real-time exchange of dematerialised information on invoices issued by suppliers.

From the electronic platform, the supplier obtains :

Full visibility of outstanding invoices and their status

Advance payment of validated invoices

Significant time savings in the administrative processing of invoices
