Frequently Asked Questions

What is a SME short term loan?

The SME short term loan is a way to absorb liquidity at attractive conditions for your company in the short term. The terms are 1-6 months and the loan is amortized with a single rate at the end of the term.

What is the difference between SME short term loan and factoring?

Factoring is a way to get short term liquidity from the accounts book without having to wait for your customer to pay your bill. In the so-called “real” factoring, they assign the claim to a buyer, which also accepts the del credere (risk of payment failure). In other aspects of factoring, the invoice is only required as collateral for the loan and the risk of del credere remains with you. In this case, you must repay the amount received at the end of the term. Either way, factoring is only possible if they can sell a claim or prove it as security. This is not necessary with
