Purchase of Receivables

What is the PURCHASE OF RECEIVABLES?

The purchase of receivables means purchase, funding, management and collection of short, medium- or long-term accounts receivable arising from deliveries of goods, services or construction work, usually for domestic customers. Purchases typically are of accounts receivable payable within 180 days or longer.

Factoring KB purchases receivables:

  • without recourse to the supplier
  • with recourse to the supplier

PURCHASE OF RECEIVABLES Principle

  1. Factoring KB concludes a framework agreement on assignment of receivables for consideration with or without recourse to the supplier.
  2. Supplier provides goods, services or construction work to the buyer.
  3. Supplier assigns the account receivable while providing the necessary documentation to Factoring KB.
  4. Supplier sends a Notice of Assignment of Receivable to the buyer.
  5. Buyer confirms the Notice of Assignment of Receivable (if the receivable has been assigned without recourse).
  6. Factoring KB pays to the supplier funds equal to 100% of the account receivable’s value.
  7. Buyer pays the receivable in full to Factoring KB’s account.

In case the account receivable is not duly settled by the buyer on its due date, then (in the case of purchasing a receivable with recourse) the account receivable is returned to the supplier.

Costs Associated with PURCHASE OF RECEIVABLES

Depending on circumstances of a given transaction, the price for the purchase of an account receivable is agreed individually. As part of the transaction, the following items are invoiced to the client (i.e. supplier):

  1. Factoring fee: includes cost connected with administering collection of the account receivable assigned to the factor.
  2. Discount: a fixed or floating rate (in % p.a.) derived from the reference rate valid as at the account receivable’s purchase date and increased by the factor’s margin.

The price for the assignment is usually set off against the nominal value of the assigned account receivable as at its assignment date.
