Supply-Chain Financing

Free up working capital in your supply chain

Free up valuable cash trapped in the supply chain with DBS Bank (Taiwan) Ltd Supply-Chain Financing (SCF). This innovative working capital solution benefits all parties involved by leveraging on our relationship with a corporate anchor to inject liquidity into the supply chain. We offer both supplier and distributor/buyer finance programmes as part of our SCF solutions.


We finance sales to corporate buyers by accessing invoice information directly from buyers who have signed an agreement with us:

  1. As the supplier, you deliver the goods and invoice to your buyer
  2. On a pre-agreed date, your buyer sends us his/her payables listings
  3. We then pay you early
  4. We collect payment from your buyer on the invoice due date


Benefits to you as the supplier

  • Improves working capital
  • Receive financing of up to 100% of the invoice value
  • Enjoy competitive interest rates
  • No additional security required


Why choose DBS Bank (Taiwan) Ltd Supply-Chain Financing?

  • Minimise hassle and reduce turnaround time with our streamlined on-boarding process
  • Reduce paper transactions with automated processing
  • Support your business expansion across Asia – a fast growing market


Is this a new type of financing?

Relatively speaking, yes. Supplier-Finance structures originated in North America and Europe, and are becoming increasingly prevalent in Asia as a result of trade links with the West. Buyer-Finance structures are more prevalent in South Asia, where channel-Finance structures are often used in the automotive or electronics industries for example.  Focused on assisting both large corporations and SMEs, DBS Bank (Taiwan) Ltd makes an ideal provider for SCF solutions.

How does it work?

Major retailers may use large-scale Supplier-Financing structures to ensure the viability of their supply chain. They allow suppliers to leverage their credit rating in order to provide them with greater liquidity, ensuring they can meet demand.

How will SCF affect my transaction processes?

Payment patterns and processes differ between companies, however our product specialists tailor the programme to suit existing invoicing and payment processes. As such, your underlying transactions require minimal change.

What kind of sales/purchases qualify for this type of financing?

Trade transactions must be on open account terms and occur on a recurring basis in order to qualify. Hence, one-off sales or purchases do not qualify.

What documents do I need to provide when I request for SCF?

For supplier finance, we tend to request information directly from the corporate anchor, eliminating the need for you to provide trade documents.


How do I apply?

SCF structures are led by a corporate client, known as an anchor. As such, we approach suppliers only once we’ve negotiated an agreement with a suitable anchor. Each SCF structure will have its customised parameters regarding financing, tenure and credit limit. Please call us at 0800 808 889 (or +886 2 6612 9889 if you are overseas) for more information.
