Factoring de Exportação_EN 

  1. The exporting company bills its Client (the foreign importer) for the supply of goods or services;
  2. The exporting company assigns the invoices to BPI;
  3. At the company's request, BPI advances the payment on the invoices assigned;
  4. On the due date, the foreign importer settles the bill for goods or services to the factoring network of which BPI is a member.
  5. The factoring network pays to BPI the amount received from the importer.
Advantages
  • Reduction of administrative costs related to the invoice collection process;
  • Reduction of average collection periods, as management of the process is entrusted to a specialized team;
  • The collection contacts are transferred to BPI, which helps prevent a possible deterioration of the commercial relationship between the company and its Clients;
  • Possibility to receive advance payment for the invoices assigned to BPI, subject to prior approval of the Factoring credit ceiling, which may cover all the Clients of the company, or just some of them;
  • Improvement of the company's economic and financial ratios, since in Factoring without recourse the invoices whose payment was advanced by BPI are removed from the balance sheet (trade receivables), in which case BPI covers, among others, the risk of customer insolvency;
  • Exemption from stamp duty on the use of credit related to the advance payment of invoices under Factoring without recourse;
  • Prior analysis by BPI of actual and potential clients, as well as periodic monitoring of the company's customer portfolio, thus mitigating possible risks;
  • Hedging against the risk of insolvency of the Company's Clients (in the case of Factoring without recourse).
