Debt Sale is a form of asset sale. Over the last 20 years it has become an increasingly popular strategy for a whole range of organizations wanting to improve cashflow and reduce balance sheet liabilities. It has become an integrated part of the credit management lifecycle cycle for almost all major UK businesses that provide credit as part of their business. A debt sale can take the shape of a one off sale, or a more regular arrangement; it is a flexible process mutually agreed between seller and purchaser.

Although the process can be flexible, the steps are essentially very simple and straightforward, taking on average six weeks from start to completion of sale. After signing a confidential agreement/data processing agreement, typically the steps are:
Step 1 - Initial data file is provided to purchaser
Step 2 - Indicative price is discussed with the seller
Step 3 - On-site due diligence with the seller
Step 4 - Binding price is discussed with the seller
Step 5 - Contracts are signed and funds are transferred
