Invoice financing FAQs

Do you have any questions? We are here for you.

What is factoring?

With factoring, you sell an open, not overdue receivable to a factoring company and receive the invoice amount in the shortest possible time, at the same time you are protected against non-payment. You pay a small fee for this upfront cashflow.

What type of factoring is Banqup invoice financing?

Banqup invoice financing is disclosed, non-recourse factoring. 

Non-recourse factoring means that we bear the risk of non-payment of a sold receivable for you and you, in a legally binding way, transfer and sell your receivables claim to the buyer.

Disclosed factoring means that your customer learns about the sale of the receivable. We take care of this - you do not have to do anything. We also take care of the dunning and collection if necessary. Of course, we keep you informed about the payment status of the receivable.

In addition, our factoring is single factoring, which means that you do enter into a framework agreement with us, but you are not contractually bound to us and can decide for each receivable individually whether you want to finance it. So, your business enjoys maximum flexibility with our factoring offer.

Which are the advantages of Banqup invoice financing?

You can decide at any time how much liquidity your business needs and how many receivables you want to sell. In addition, you are secured against non-payment  at the same time. Full flexibility, fast liquidity - and completely independent of banks.

By selling the receivable, you reduce the value of your balance sheet and thus increase your equity ratio because of the cashflow injection, which can have a positive effect on your credit terms.

The sales process is completely digital and requires only a few clicks.

How does Banqup invoice finance work?

Factoring works very simply with us. After you have registered for factoring and signed the factoring framework agreement, you will be shown all open receivables that you can sell. You select the receivables you want to sell and receive the displayed amount in your account within two banking business days (if the purchase is approved).

The framework agreement can be terminated at any time with 1 month's notice by email to help@banqup.de. In addition, your company can stop selling your receivables immediately. Hence, there is no obligation to sell and you are fully flexible.

What does the process look like for the debtor?

The debtor is informed about the sale of the receivable. For the invoice recipient, only the account and the recipient to whom the payment must be made will change, nothing else will change.

To what extent can I use the financing?

You cannot have more than €500,000 of sold receivables outstanding at any one time, while a single invoiced amount must not exceed €250,000. Once an receivable is paid, it is no longer open and you can sell another receivable.

What is the time frame between approval and funding?

Payment is usually made within 2 banking business days in accordance with SEPA rules.

How much does Banqup invoice financing cost?

Setting up the factoring module is free of charge for you. Unlike most factoring providers, you do not incur any fixed costs. You pay a factoring fee, which is calculated as a discount on the invoice amount and is currently between approx. 1.75 and 4.75 percent plus VAT. The fee depends on different variables like the quality of the recipient, the invoice amount, and the payment terms. Beyond that, there are no further costs for you.

What does the application process look like?

Invoice financing with Banqup is fully digital. You can conveniently apply for access to Banqup invoice financing online at any time.

First you have to answer a few questions about your company according to the anti-money-laundering regulations, the company's legal representatives, and beneficial owners. This only takes a few minutes. After that, all legal representatives have to go through the video identification process. After that, the factoring framework agreement still needs to be completed digitally. In total, the whole application process usually takes no longer than two bank working days.

After completion, the financing module will be activated in your Banqup account and you can sell the first receivable.

How soon will the unconditional purchase price (85% of the invoice amount) be paid out and when do I get the retention back?

The unconditional purchase price is paid out within two bank working days. You will receive the 15% retention less the factoring fee and the applicable VAT, as well as any further deductions, e.g., for cash discount, as soon as the invoice recipient has paid, has filed for insolvency or no later than 120 days after the original payment date.
