All our MSME Sellers willing to avail the factoring facility from the bank can upload the invoices on the registered TReDS platforms by completing the registration process and can avail the benefits of TReDS.

TReDS Platform (Trade Receivable Discounting System) is an institutional mechanism set up for financing of trade receivables of MSMEs in an online portal. TReDS is an initiative by RBI and is governed by the regulatory framework put in place by the Reserve Bank of India under the Payment and Settlement Systems Act 2007.

The main objective of the TReDS platform is to address the critical needs of MSMEs i.e, the twin issues of promptly en-cashing receivables and eliminating credit risk. TReDS platform of RXIL and A.TReDS are expected to be a catalyst in the growth of MSMEs by bringing in transparency in the business eco-system. 

TReDS platform enables discounting of invoices/bills of exchange of MSME sellers against large corporates, including Government departments and public sector undertakings, through an auction mechanism to ensure prompt realization of trade receivables at competitive market rates. 

The TReDS will provide the platform to bring different participants together for facilitating uploading, accepting, discounting, trading and settlement of the invoices/bills of MSMEs. On completing the registration as per the guidelines of the platform, participants can initiate transaction under TReDS.
