Definition and benefit of factoring

Basic definition of factoring: the seller assigns to Minsheng Bank its receivables generated from its credit sale of products or services to the buyer, on the basis of which, Minsheng Bank will provide the seller/buyer with financing, maintenance of sales ledger, collection of receivables, buyer’s credit risk guarantee and other relevant financial services.

Based on whether the seller and buyer are in the same country or region, factoring business is divided into domestic factoring and international factoring; based on the entity of business, it is divided into seller’s factoring and buyer’s factoring; based on whether recourse to the seller is permitted, it is divided into recourse factoring (non-buy-out factoring) and non-recourse factoring (buy-out factoring); based on whether the buyer is notified that the receivables are assigned, it is divided into disclosed factoring (open factoring) and undisclosed factoring (concealed factoring).
