Liquidity controls for dynamic discounting programs.: 000010683

Article Number: 000010683

Taulia’s liquidity controls for dynamic discounting allow you to control the amount of working capital deployed into your Taulia Early Payment program. Liquidity limits can be used to control the size of your entire DD program, by business unit, or by the supplier and can be set to only apply at certain times of year (ex. quarter or year-end).

Each time a supplier takes an early payment, the amount of that early payment is tracked as part of that asset until the invoice reaches its maturity date, at which point it is removed.
These liquidity limits are systematically enforced, stopping suppliers from taking early payments when the limit is reached. Early payments are tracked in real-time and converted across currencies to ensure the limit is not exceeded.

Liquidity Limit Example

Here is a simplified example of how the limits function:
1 - Assume a $100,000 limit is in place for a single business unit
2 - Today is January 1st
3 - A supplier takes early payment on an $80,000 invoice due February 10th
4 - Between now and February 10th, the supplier cannot take early payment on any invoice greater than $20,000
5 - On February 11th, the full $100,000 is available again

6 - Provide a name for the liquidity limit and save it. The limit can be saved in a “Disabled” or “Enabled” state:

  • Enable Now - Saves the limit and immediately enables it.
  • Enable Later - Save the limit but do not activate it, so it resides in the Disabled state.

Viewing and Tracking Liquidity Limits
By default, the liquidity limits are all displayed in a table on the main Liquidity Limits page. In addition to viewing the attributes and constraints of the limit, you can see the current size of the limit through the progress bar. When hovering over the progress bar, a chart is displayed depicting this limit (or assets) size over time.

  • The total limit amount and total outstanding (as of today) are displayed at the top of the chart.
  • The chart displays the size of the asset over time.
  • The orange line in the chart indicates the limited amount
  • The blue part of the chart indicates historical data, as suppliers are taking early payments.
  • The light blue section indicates the future when invoices in that asset are reaching maturity.
