What is invoice factoring?

Invoice factoring is a financial transaction in which a business sells its invoice to a third party at a discount to collect cash much sooner. Below is a high-level diagram showing the transaction cycle for factoring an invoice.

Can my company factor an invoice with Sunway Credit?

Currently, Sunway Credit only factors invoices issued to companies that are part of Sunway Group. Invoices must also be approved by the Sunway business unit before Sunway Credit can factor them. If you issue invoices to a company of Sunway Group, you can likely open a factoring account with Sunway Credit.

What are the cost and terms?


  • Processing Charge: 1% on advance amount
  • Discount Charge: 8% per annum on the advance amount (~0.67% per month), pro-rated daily


  • Advance Payment: Up to 90% of the invoice value
  • Minimum Advance Amount: RM10,000 
  • Time Frame: Payment made to vendor within 3 working days from request (must already be an approved invoice)

Can you give me an example?

Here is an example of a RM10,000 transaction with 45-day credit terms that is factored with a 90% advance of the invoice's total amount.
