What is Invoice and Debtor financing?

Invoice and debtor finance allows your business to access funding of up to 85% of the value of unpaid invoices you’ve sent to your customers (debtors).

Rather than waiting for your customers to pay, you can access up to 85% of the funds up front, by selling your unpaid invoices to NAB.

How NAB Invoice and Debtor Finance works

Our online solution makes invoice financing easy through NAB Connect. You can upload details of your unpaid invoices from any accounting package, and use NAB Connect to manage your invoice finance facility and other business banking in the one place. 

  1. You sell your unpaid invoices to NAB, and regularly upload details of those invoices in NAB Connect.

  2. We make funding available of up to 85% of the value of eligible invoices, in most cases within moments of uploading details of your invoices.

  3. You access the funds as you need and pay a facility fee only on the outstanding amount. 

  4. The amount you owe under your facility is reduced as debtors pay into your account.

  5. More funding becomes available when you submit details of new invoices.
