Account Receivables Purchases Scheme ("ARPS")

What is ARPS?

ARPS is a type of working capital financing, whereby MUFG Bank purchase trade receivables at a discount from our customer (the "Seller"), on a non recourse basis in a manner of legal true-sale. The receivables are owed by pre-agreed obligors which are customers of MUFG.

Key Benefits of ARPS

  • Diversification of funding sources (e.g. financing based on receivables instead of corporate borrowing)
  • Accelerated monetization of assets and improved cash conversion cycle
  • Payment risk mitigation (i.e. MUFG will not have recourse to the Seller for obligor's default risk)
  • Potential off-balance sheet treatment*
* Note: MUFG Bank does not provide accounting advise. The Seller needs to consult with its own accountants and/or auditors for accounting treatment of each transaction.


ARPS will be suitable for customers who have a relatively concentrated portfolio of trade receivables, with concentration against specific obligors. If the portfolio is diversified, MUFG Bank can offer alternative solutions such as securitization.
