Financing the Importer
- 4 Downloads
A client will often require financial support to pay a supplier for the purchase of goods. Whilst payables finance provides a solution to fund payment to specific trade creditors when traditional credit risk assessment and conventional lending products such as an overdraft cannot accommodate the required facility amount, the risks need to be carefully evaluated and an appropriate financing structure implemented which mitigates risk to an acceptable level.
In this chapter, the key aspects of risk assessment are considered, and a range of solutions described to fund payment to the supplier for goods which are to be delivered to an end-buyer.
