Optimise your working capital and increase your companies’ cash flow with American Express. 

By using the working capital solution to settle payments with strategic suppliers you can accelerate payments to suppliers while keeping cash-on-hand longer and therefore increasing your own liquidity. Furthermore, the solution aligns opposing company interests: a significant extension of payment terms for buyers and contractually assured payment five banking days after authorisation for suppliers. This harmonisation strengthens the relationship between buyers and suppliers.
