Do you want more information?

Factoring is an agreement between the factor and the supplier, by which:

(a) the supplier can assign his/her claims against customers (debtors)

(b) the factor should provide at least two of the following services:

  • Advance payments (financing) for the purchase of trade receivables.
  • Accounting management of the debtors’ accounts.
  • Collection of trade receivables.
  • Cover of credit risk.



Usually the financing is carried out on the next business day following notification of receivables.
  1. The supplier signs a Factoring agreement with NBG Factors and notifies the debtors (customers) in writing of the assignment of the debtor receivables to NBG Factors

  1. Following delivery of goods or the provision of services, the supplier notifies the factor of his/her assigned debtor (customer) receivables

  1. The factor grants advance payments (provides financing) to the supplier on the basis of the value of the receivables assigned.

  1. The debtor pays to the factor the value of the receivables that the latter has undertaken to manage and collect.

The overall cost of Factoring involves two cost components:

  • The management fee, which is charged on the value of assigned receivables and includes the administration, collection and insurance cost of the services provided.
  • The prepayment fee, which is calculated on the basis of the daily balance of the current account, and corresponds to the lending rate applying to the outstanding discounted receivables at any given time.
