What is Trade Finance
Trade Finance enables you to fund the purchase of goods from suppliers, both overseas and here in Australia bridging the gap before you can sell the items and get paid by your customers. It provides a simple solution to help your business improve its trading cash flow. Once you have set up a facility with us, we pay your suppliers directly, covering a range of currencies. You simply request a draw down amount for each shipment that you are expecting. We'll match your supplier payment terms so taking away creditor pressure.
Trade Finance is designed to help businesses get access to working capital solutions so you will also need to set up a Debtor Finance facility with us.
