All applications for finance are subject to satisfactory lending and credit criteria. Terms, conditions, fees and charges apply. You should seek financial, legal, tax, accounting and other advice before considering whether the product is suitable for you.

How it works

Channel Finance is a tri-partite Scheduled Payment Program (SPP) based around bailment of assets that works to align payments with the cash conversion cycle of those assets.

We purchase inventory from the distributor and provide the inventory under bailment to the reseller(s) with extended terms linked to their cash cycle. Effective advance rate of 100% of the wholesale price is funded with an acquisition discount taken.

Payment is made on a day agreed with the manufacturer/distributor.

  • Channel Finance offers enhanced cash flow predictability and improved financial metrics resulting from payment certainty.
  • Improved sales opportunities as channel credit lines and extended payment terms help manufacturers and distributors meet customer demand and aligns their cash flow with customer’s payments.
  • Reduced risk as risk is essentially outsourced – relief from repayment risk.
