Thiess provides a Supply Chain Finance program for selected suppliers. The program helps to improve the cash flow of suppliers by enabling payment of invoices within 14 business days, in exchange for a small early payment discount.

About the program

Supply Chain Finance is a solution that optimises supplier's cash flow by allowing early payment of all approved Thiess invoices, in exchange for a small early payment discount. Payment is facilitated via our finance partner. It is free to join the program and there are no costs other than the pre-agreed early payment discount. Our solution improves your cash flow and reduces working capital requirements, allowing you to reinvest in your business.

Program benefits

  • Free to join: There are no set-up/administration fees or ongoing charges. The only cost should you choose to be paid early is a small % of the value of the invoice
  • Easy to join: Receive payment within 14 business days. Early payment through SCF frees up your existing credit lines, ensures consistency of payments and accelerates certification of payment claims
  • Inexpensive financing: The program is based on the strong credit rating of Thiess’ parent company (the ASX-listed CIMIC Group Limited) and is therefore less expensive than other financing options you may have access to
  • Non-recourse: SCF reduces credit exposure by allowing you to get paid early. Since this is not a loan, it is not classified as a debt, therefore enhancing your balance sheet metrics
  • Increased cash-flow: Early payment of your invoices improves your cash flow and reduces the need for other forms of financing
  • Improved balance sheet: By being paid early you reduce your debtors balance, improve working capital ratios and reduce liquidity risks. A strong balance sheet is helpful for reporting to your stakeholders
  • Hedge currency risk: If you are paid in a currency other than your desired currency, getting paid early allows you to mitigate the impact of exchange rate fluctuations.
