Reverse Factoring is a service that originates from an previous agreement between BPER Factor and a medium-large sized company (the buyer) with a plurality of suppliers.
Thanks to this agreement, suppliers can access dedicated lines of credit.
This operation entails close collaboration with the agreed buyer, both in the service's promotion phase with the suppliers, and in the subsequent operational phase(s) which must allow for a constant exchange of information on the status of the assigned receivables and the supply relationships.
To suppliers who request it, the agreement can also provide for the possibility of guaranteeing the buyer's solvency (without recourse).
By applying the maturity value formula, BPER Factor pays suppliers at the receivables' maturity date and also grants a further payment extension period to the buyer, effectively transforming their supply debt into an alternative financing source.

The factoring service has two main expenses (in addition to miscellaneous expenses): an interest rate applied to any advance payment made and a Factoring commission applied based on the amount of assigned receivables. Its size varies based on the service used (i.e. with or without a guarantee), the type of receivables (e.g. sector, payment schedule, deferral length, etc.), the operation amount, and the solvency of the parties involved.
