What’s Invoice Financing?
Invoice Financing is a financing service in the form of a delegation of authority to make sure that a short-term invoice of a company, from local or international transaction, is paid.
Our Invoice Financing service is sharia-compliant based on the fatwa of National Sharia Board No. 117/DSN-MUI/II/2018 that states an invoice financing is a financing service on the form of a delegation of authority for an account receivable payment based on invoice, whether with or without a loan fund (qardh) given to a business owner who has a legit invoice to a payor/client.
