Take your retail and distribution business further

Back to Banking for Large Corporates

The ability to process high volumes of payables and receivables is important to the success of your business.

Selling directly to consumers and retailers requires timely deliveries from suppliers. You need to pay them promptly while making sure that you have sufficient funds for inventory, warehousing and other operations. While payments from consumers are typically instant, you also need to cater for seasonal fluctuations in demand.

Our liquidity and trade finance solutions for retailers and distributors allow you to process high volumes of payables and receivables during high season while protecting your business from the risks associated with importing from overseas.

Process sales, optimise inventory and manage suppliers

Make and receive payments

Provide customers with a variety of payment channels and manage payables to suppliers with ease. You can reconcile both to ensure that appropriate revenues and profit margins are being achieved. You can send and receive payments in multiple currencies.

Forecast demand and manage inventory

Predict seasonal fluctuations in sales by analysing historical data. Our range of trade and cash management solutions allows you to purchase enough stock in advance to meet peak demand and maximise sales while not locking up working capital in inventory.

Ensure sufficient cash flow

In addition to freeing up cash that is trapped in inventory, you can meet fixed operating costs and finance future growth by holding onto cash owed to suppliers while they get paid early. Distributors can additionally receive up to 90% of their accounts receivable as soon as invoices are issued.

Supply chain finance

Free-up cash trapped in your company’s supply chain while extending payment terms to buyers. Whether they’re based in Singapore or are located overseas, we can provide you, your suppliers and your buyers with a continuous flow of liquidity.
