Supply Chain Solutions Approved Invoice from HSBC is an early payment programme designed to help improve the cash flow in your supply chain. Your buyer - who is a client of HSBC - invites you to participate for the opportunity to reduce your Days Sales Outstanding for cost-effective supply chain funding and balance sheet de-risking. You don't even need to open an account with HSBC.
By participating in your buyer's Approved Invoice programme, you will be eligible to receive early payment from HSBC on invoices your buyer has approved. We pay you directly, less a discount and in advance of the original invoice settlement date. Depending on how your programme is structured, you can opt to have all eligible invoices from that buyer marked for early payment or pick and choose those you want to be paid early. Either way, you effectively gain access to the capital you need at competitive rates on a non-recourse basis to keep your supply chain funded without the need to rely on traditional finance loans.
