  1. Subject matter of the contract and parties

    1. The following General quickpaid Terms and Conditions are part of the quickpaid agreement. 

    2. A.B.S. Global Factoring AG (“A.B.S. GLOBAL”) holds a licence from the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) for factoring in accordance with Sections 32, 1 (1a) sentence 1 no. 9 of the German Banking Act (KWG). 

    3. The client's contractual partner is A.B.S. GLOBAL. A.B.S. GLOBAL may involve third parties in the provision of services. 

    4. The object of quickpaid is the short-term financing of the client's purchases from its suppliers or their intermediary financiers or brokers (hereinafter collectively "Suppliers").

    5. A.B.S. GLOBAL does not advertise its services outside of Germany if a separate authorisation is required for this. Otherwise, A.B.S. GLOBAL will only enter into client relationships in exceptional cases and at the express request of clients.

    6. The client declares that it is acting exclusively within the scope of its commercial business, its commercial activity or its independent professional activity and not for private purposes. 

    7. The client declares that it is acting in his own name and for its own account or for the account of its owners entered in the public registers and without the instigation of third parties.

  2. Services and agency

    1. A.B.S. GLOBAL provides the following services:

      1. Provision of a financing framework after a creditworthiness check

      2. Verification of the eligibility of receivables from client purchases

      3. Assumption of receivables from suppliers against the client for financing purposes

      4. Information and billing 

    2. In particular, the client instructs A.B.S. GLOBAL to take over receivables against him from his suppliers which are presented to A.B.S. GLOBAL by the client himself or by his supplier with the client's confirmation (business procurement) and undertakes to reimburse A.B.S. GLOBAL in particular for the costs of taking over the receivables, irrespective of the existence of the receivables or the validity of assignments of receivables. Payment is due no later than 120 days after receipt of the notification of payments to suppliers.

  3. Assumption of receivables and payment

    1. A.B.S. GLOBAL receives the offer to take over receivables from the client or its suppliers by presenting the invoices and the transactions underlying the receivables.

    2. A.B.S. GLOBAL decides on the acceptance of receivables at its own due discretion in each individual case. In particular, A.B.S. GLOBAL shall check the creditworthiness of the client, the existence of the supplier and the suitability of the claim. There is no obligation to accept individual claims, not even from the conclusion of this contract or the sending of access data or physical cards. A.B.S. GLOBAL may, at its own discretion, set financing limits per client, supplier and receivable and adjust these limits for future assumption of receivables on an ongoing basis in line with creditworthiness developments and risk assessments.

    3. If A.B.S. GLOBAL decides to take over receivables, A.B.S. GLOBAL shall agree this directly with the suppliers (receivable holders). The payment of the purchase prices (invoice amounts) constitutes the purchase of the receivables and the acceptance of the assignment of receivables. 

    4. All associated securities and ancillary rights, such as claims for restitution, default interest and damages, shall also be transferred to A.B.S. GLOBAL upon assumption of the receivables. For this purpose, the client's claims arising from any changes or additions to the underlying transaction; claims that have taken the place of the transferred claims; expectant rights and claims for restitution and the procurement of ownership in the case of reserved or collateral property; claims arising from the resale of goods by the client; insurance claims and claims against carriers are hereby assigned.

    5. If the receivables are taken over at the client's request, A.B.S. GLOBAL shall grant the client a payment term of up to 120 days to finance these, depending on the agreement. 

    6. The client shall make payments on assigned claims exclusively to A.B.S. GLOBAL. In addition, the client shall reimburse A.B.S. GLOBAL for all payments made by A.B.S. GLOBAL in reliance on the defect-free existence of claims and the guarantees under this contract. The obligation to reimburse shall extend to all costs incurred in enforcing the claims.

    7. With the presentation of receivables to A.B.S. GLOBAL by the client itself or by its supplier under confirmation of the client, the client in advance promises with regard to all receivables assumed within the scope of the agency relationship to fulfil these unconditionally towards A.B.S. GLOBAL, insofar as A.B.S. GLOBAL has actually financed invoice amounts from this, and expressly waives existing or future objections to the existence of the receivables and the validity of the assignments of receivables (irrevocable payment undertaking).

    8. The client is aware that he may be held liable by suppliers and A.B.S. GLOBAL and must pursue claims for reimbursement himself. For this purpose, A.B.S. GLOBAL assigns its own claims against suppliers to the client after satisfaction.  

  4. Liability for receivables, guarantee promise

With the offer to assume the claim, the client guarantees A.B.S. GLOBAL

  1. the defect-free origin and existence of the claims, their freedom from defences and objections and their assignability as well as the transfer to A.B.S. GLOBAL of all statutory and contractual ancillary rights, securities and claims arising therefrom against the Supplier.

  2. that the receivables result from deliveries of goods, work and services which were commissioned in the regular course of business of his commercial trade in its name and for its account, and in particular not from commission business or receivables with a private reference.

  3. that the deliveries or services on which the claims are based are contractually justified, have been provided in full, have been accepted or finally accepted by him as being in accordance with the contract and that the claims are not subject to foreign law from outside the countries of the European Union, Great Britain, Norway or Switzerland, insofar as the delivery or service is provided from one of these countries. 

  4. that the deliveries or services on which the claims are based (i) were contractually justified, fully provided and accepted or finally accepted by the client as being in accordance with the contract or (ii) ICC Incoterms 2020 FOB (free on board) or an even more favourable ICC Incoterm 2020 for the client were effectively agreed and the obligations hereunder were actually fulfilled by the suppliers and the client, insofar as the delivery or service is made from a country outside the countries of the European Union, Great Britain, Norway or Switzerland.

  5. that the receivables are invoiced for payment in a currency of the countries of the European Union, Great Britain, Norway, Switzerland or the United States of America and that the invoicing complies with tax regulations.

  6. that the invoice amounts on which the receivables are based and the payment terms agreed with the supplier are customary in the market and are not yet overdue at the time of the offer to A.B.S. GLOBAL. Invoiced amounts with payment terms may be due in 8 days at the earliest; invoiced amounts without payment terms may not be more than 7 days overdue.

  7. that the receivables are not between companies affiliated under company law (intra-group trade receivables) or – also with regard to the authorised representatives – personally related parties.

This shall also apply if suppliers become insolvent or if claims cannot be enforced for other reasons.

  10. that no exclusion of assignability has been agreed or that such an exclusion is in any case ineffective, and that he will not invoke any ineffectiveness of the assignment vis-à-vis A.B.S. GLOBAL. Insofar as the client has agreed a prohibition of assignment with the supplier, the client hereby agrees to the assignment of the offered claims to A.B.S. GLOBAL.

  11. that it recognises as legally binding all declarations and instructions given with proper imprint and the signatory authorisations communicated to A.B.S. GLOBAL. The client also recognises the authorisation of the persons signing the assignment agreement at the supplier. 

  12. that the receivables do not result from the delivery of live animals or weapons and that the justification or enforcement of the claims does not conflict with national or international regulations, in particular prohibitions and the German Foreign Trade and Payments Act (Aussenwirtschaftsgesetz) with regard to embargoes or other sanctions. 

  13. that ancillary rights and securities such as credit insurance or export credit guarantees actually exist to the extent stated in the offer to take over the receivables and that the client is solely entitled to all securities.
