2.12 Is the Expected Date important?

Yes. It is very important for two reasons that affect:

  • SettlementIf an ETR is not Settled (i.e. paid in full by the debtor) within 15 calendar days of the Expected Date, Credebt Exchange® will initiate its Collections Policy. The Collections Policy stipulates that if the ETR is not Settled within 15 days of the Expected Date, the Credebt Exchange® Collections Team may initiate direct contact with the debtor to ensure prompt payment. If the payment is not received within 30 Days of the Expected Date,  Credebt Exchange® regards the payment  as distressed and passes  the ETR for collection by a third-party, debt collections agency. Under the terms of the Master Agreement, Credebt Exchange® will use all necessary practices, including legal remedy, to ensure collection. To avoid any damage to the Originator’s reputation, it is advised that all ETR are collected on, or close to, the Expected Date
  • Cost of FundsThe Expected Date affects Reserve payments and Originators are encouraged not to over estimate the Expected Date because this increases the Discount. In the case of Outright ETR trades, payment of the Reserve only occurs if the ETR is Settled on, or before, the Expected Date. Over estimating is ‘bad practice’ and should be avoided to ensure the best value, low cost capital
