FAQs about Octet

How are Octet’s interest rates determined? 

When it comes to interest rates Octet keeps things simple, with rates starting from 9% p.a. for both its invoice finance and trade finance products. And the good news with trade finance is, you’ll get up to 60 days interest-free and up to 120 days for repayment. 

What fees are there?

Besides the interest rate, both Octet products also come with an application fee. Plus, you’ll need to factor in ongoing service fees: for invoice finance, this is calculated as a percentage of the invoices processed, while for trade finance, it’s a transaction fee every time you use the facility. 

How does the Octet approval process work? 

The business world moves rapidly, so Octet promises an application process that takes just two minutes as well as fast approval speeds.

With invoice finance, you can expect to hear back about approval in less than 24 hours. Once approved, it’s just a matter of uploading your invoices and you’ll have access to up to 85% of your invoice funds in 24 hours. 

Similarly with trade finance, Octet strives to give approval within 24 hours. Once you’ve been approved for your facility, your funds may take up to two days to arrive. After that, you won’t need to wait another minute before accessing the line of credit to pay suppliers across 68 countries.

What do I need to be eligible? 

Depending on which Octet finance option you go with, there are a few boxes you’ll need to tick as a business. 

To qualify for its invoice finance facility, you must be in an industry that provides proof of debt, have more than one business-to-business client on your receivables ledge, and also have an appropriate spread of customers. Ideally, your business would have a turnover of at least $1 million, with 1-2 years of trading experience under its belt, but Octet encourages any business turning over $500,000 or more a year to get in touch. 

Meanwhile, for its trade finance facility, Octet says it approves applications based on each business’s individual circumstances. But generally speaking, your business will need to be based in Australia, turn over at least $3 million annually, have earned a profit in the last 2-3 financial reporting periods and hold a positive balance sheet net worth.

What features should I know about?

Fast 24 hour approval

Say goodbye to spending hours on paperwork and weeks on waiting for approval. Octet promises an application process takes as little as two minutes.

Secure transactions 

Octet is serious about security and bringing peace of mind to its customers. All its information systems are certified with best-in-market practices.

Earn rewards like Qantas Points 

If you love being rewarded for using a product, you’ll be pleased to know Octet delivers on those extra perks. When you use its trade finance facility, you can earn 1 Qantas Point for every $10 settled. That means for $1 million settled, you would earn 100,000 points - enough for an economy return flight from Sydney to Hong Kong.
