Domestic Factoring

Armswissbank is one of the first financial institutions operating in Armenia that has implemented and developed factoring as an effective tool of short-term trade finance. The Bank offers wide range of factoring services suitable for needs and requirements of each client.

Factoring is a financial transaction in which the client assigns the collection rights of its accounts receivable to the Bank at a discount.


Factoring includes the following services:

  • Financing sales on deferred payment terms
  • Accounts receivable administration
  • Collection of accounts receivable
  • Protection against buyers’ default

A sample of factoring transaction is displayed below:


1. The seller (the Bank's client) delivers the goods to the buyer (debtor) on deferred payment terms and issues the invoice

2. The seller then presents the invoice and the delivery documents to the Bank

3. The Bank pays the seller the main part of the invoice amount (up to 90%) and charges the commission

4. On due date the buyer pays the Bank the total amount (100%) of the invoice

5.The Bank pays the seller the remaining 10% of the sum, less the accumulated interest for the financing.

The advantages of factoring

Advantages for sellers

  • Opportunity of increasing working capital in short terms by assigning the accounts receivable
  • continuous growth of financing together with growth of sales
  • growth in production and/or trade volume due to availability of funds
  • the opportunity to offer the buyers deferred payment terms, thus expanding the number of buyers and increasing market share
  • improvement of tax discipline - the client receives necessary funds to make the tax payments which arise from delivered goods which are not yet paid for
  • avoiding or minimizing losses arising from the fluctuations of the exchange rates
  • administration of accounts receivable upon client’s request
  • protection against buyer’s default (in case of non-recourse factoring).

Advantages for buyers

  • Working with sellers on deferred payment terms
  • increasing the volume and assortment of products without involving additional capital
  • managing temporarily available funds by working on deferred payment terms (instead of paying interest for a bank loan),
  • decreasing expenses of financing the payment for goods delivered (the seller pays for the factoring services).

The authorized body approving the factoring limit (the maximum amount of factoring that can be provided to the seller for a certain buyer) takes into consideration the following objective and subjective factors:

Objective factors

Client’s and/or seller’s experience, history of cooperation with the factoring partner, financial statements, accounts’ turnover, volume of potential transactions, credit history, etc.

Subjective factors

Client's and/or buyer’s activity’s compliance with the Bank's policies, transparency of client’s/buyer’s business, quality of management, further cooperation perspectives, etc.
