With Co-op Banks’ Invoice Discounting, you can withdraw money against sales invoices before payments are done. This is available to various prequalified procuring entities like UNMISS, UNDP, UNMAS, UNIFSA, WFP etc.
- This makes available 70-80% of the invoice value as soon as it has been raised and the remainder is made available when the customer pays.
- Enables you to unlock your business’ working capital and cash flow that would be obtained after a period of time depending on the terms of payment e.g. 30 – 45 days after invoicing.
