As a business powered by human knowledge and expertise, salaries and expenses account for most of your outgoings. However, buyers of your services aren’t always prompt in paying your invoices. What solutions can you tap on to grow your business while financing this shortfall?
Your accounts payable are primarily driven by salaries and other payments to individuals. It’s therefore critical for the continuity of your business that these are made promptly. While some services businesses receive regular income from long-term agreements and subscriptions, many others are subject to irregular revenue streams while still being obligated to make fixed payments — whether that’s to contractors, workspace providers or technology vendors.
Our solutions facilitate payments to staff and contractors, and provide you with the capital you need to hire talent, expand your services regionally and grow further.
Facilitate payments, optimise liquidity, bolster cash flow
Payments and collection
Facilitate payroll, staff expenses and supplier payments through a range of solutions, including our corporate credit cards which streamline the reconciliation process, and PayNow Corporate if suppliers are based in Singapore. Capitalise on our billing and collection services, which help you get paid on time.
Cash flow management
Access cost-effective financing solutions to bridge cash shortages caused by delays in collections. These include turning up to 90% of invoice values into cash immediately upon issuance, as well as delaying payments to suppliers while they still receive these funds promptly from us.
Get greater visibility and control of your local and regional cash holdings with a range of liquidity management services, such as notional pooling and cash concentration.
Deposit Insurance Scheme
Singapore dollar deposits of non-bank depositors are insured by the Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation, for up to S$75,000 in aggregate per depositor per Scheme member by law.
