Working Capital management and Risk management are key issues for companies of all sizes across all industries.

Supplier payments

Our Supplier payments product could be suitable for companies who have regular payments to multiple suppliers and it is designed to complement your existing Accounts Payable process. Our relationship with you and our understanding of your business enable us to offer the suppliers the opportunity to advance payments ahead of the trade terms you have negotiated with them; thereby improving their working capital and reducing their risk of non-payment. Our service allows you to optimise your working capital position and benefit from any trade discounts that suppliers may offer in return for prompt payment.

An implementation fee is payable, however there are no ongoing fees payable by the client. Suppliers pay an interest fee based upon usage each time they use the facility.


Through our introducer agreement we are able to offer a referral to Pay4 Limited.

The Pay4 solution can be especially useful where you may have a requirement for additional working capital funding that cannot be met from traditional sources, allowing you to benefit from improved working capital, and to take advantage of any trade discounts that suppliers may offer in return for a prompt payment.
