Frequently Asked Questions

  1. The buyer and the supplier agree on commercial terms of the transaction
  2. The buyer approves the supplier’s invoice
  3. Using the Citi® Supplier Finance platform:
    • The buyer sends the approval with payment instructions to Citi
    • Citi notifies the supplier of the approval
    • The supplier can then opt to immediately discount the underlying receivables, converting them to cash without recourse at a lower rate of funding
    • In this case, Citi remits funds to the supplier at the discounted payment amount
    • Citi debits the buyer's disbursement account on the date agreed upon with the supplier
The Citibank price is based on a base rate, such as LIBOR (the London Inter Bank Offered Rate published by the British Banking Authority), plus a spread. We determine the fee to purchase your receivables based on the Citibank price, the value of your receivables and the period your receivable is outstanding. Generally, the fee works out to be well under 1% of the invoice amount–far less than it would cost you to fund this receivable, resulting in savings to you.
