Intra Group Netting

Optimized intra-group money logistics

Subsidiaries of multinational corporations typically interact with each other commercially. If the subsidiaries' home currencies differ from each other, the multilateral business can result in a complex invoice ledger, carrying a significant currency risk. 

The most effective way to cut payment costs is not to make the payments in the first place. That is what Netting does, it eliminates most intra-group payments across the external banking system. In addition, the use of netting will often lead to improvements in other areas as the netting system imposes operational discipline throughout the group.

Netting also reduces cash-in-transit and centralizes the management of currency dealing to the head office, making it an essential tool for increasing the efficiency in money logistics.
