Information about the use of TrustBills

Who can use TrustBills?

TrustBills can be used by all companies and public sector corporations as well as by legally independent groups of persons listed in the commercial register. They must have been commercially active for at least 3 years.

How does TrustBills work?

A registered TrustBills user can simply upload its invoice onto the TrustBills platform and start the auction process. The seller determines what other players in the digital marketplace can see and bid for the receivable offered. Moreover, the auction could be on a silent or open assignment basis.

The investor submits a bid based on his individual investment strategy, expected return, risk and maturities. An additional analysis option is to consider the payment behaviour of the individual supplier-buyer relationship, which is documented on the TrustBills platform.

Upon completion of the auction, the receivable seller automatically receives the purchase price net of any taxes.
