The Seller of Receivables
Companies sell their receivables for a variety of reasons, including access to financing, balance sheet enhancement, and offering longer payment terms to their buyers. The seller is generally located in the United States and enters into a purchase agreement with the financial institution. The seller may act as the collection servicer. Invoicing can be in U.S. dollars, Euros or another currency endorsed to the policy. Please read the FCIA Purchase of Receivables Coverage brochure for more details.
