Customer Handles Own Credit Control (CHOCC)

CHOCC? Don't worry if you've never come across this acronym before, it simply means you as a customer handles your own credit control. Similar to invoice factoring, it’s a disclosed facility, however instead of us handing your credit control you handle it yourself. This means you can maintain and develop the strong relationships that you've already built with your customers.

The facility allows you to receive up to 85% of the invoice value within 24 hours of the invoice being raised instead of having to wait the typical 30-90 days for your customers to pay, thereby freeing up your cash flow.

With CHOCCS your business will benefit from a release of cash and as your business grows, so does the available funding. You don’t even need to negotiate new terms as our flexible funding line increases with your turnover.

How a CHOCC facility works

  1. You supply goods and services to your customers.
  2. You send your customer the invoice made payable to Hitachi Capital Invoice Finance, and send a copy to us.
  3. We will give you up to 85% of the invoice amount. At this stage a service fee is deducted from your account as a percentage of your turnover.
  4. The customer settles the invoice in full by making payment direct to us. When the remaining balance is paid, a small finance fee is deducted from your account, charged as a percenatge of the amount lent.
  5. The invoice clears and we give you the remaining balance.

Throughout this whole process you will have a dedicated client manager who will keep you up to date with customer payments.
