With GFT, a new period starts in trade!
The Guarantee Fund Transfer (GFT) is a non-cash financing product which enables the businesses purchasing goods and services to make deferred payments under the guarantee of Vakıf Katılım and the businesses selling goods and services to transfer their receivables in digital environment for other payments before maturity date.
When the buyer uses the GFT financing, the GFT amount and the maturity details are transferred to the GFT account of the seller; the seller who receives GFT amount to his/her account can transfer, in whole or in part, the GFT amount to be transferred to his/her current account at maturity to other customers or can hold the GFT amount in his/her account and use in cash on maturity date.
On maturity date, the GFT amounts of the businesses which hold the GFT in their accounts will automatically be transferred to their current account under the guarantee of Vakıf Katılım. The buyer may optionally make the payment in cash using the GFT on maturity date or may make the payment in installments using Funded GFT after the maturity date.
The GFT account is an account where GFT balances can be held and transferred. Our customers who wish to make a GFT transaction must have a GFT account.
Our commercial customers can open a GFT account from our Branches or through our Internet and Mobile Branch. You can follow “Financing-Guaranteed Fund Transfer- My Guaranteed Fund Transfers” menu on Internet and Mobile Branch to open a GFT account. Non-customer businesses can open a GFT account by arriving at the nearest branch.
The GFT transfer enables our customers to make their payments using undue GFTs held in their accounts without waiting for the maturity. The businesses which hold undue GFTs in their accounts will be able to purchase goods and services or make their payments by transferring, in whole or in part, their GFTs to another GFT account.
The businesses which have a balance in their GFT accounts can transfer, in whole or in part, their available balance through Internet and Mobile Branch or from the nearest branch. You can follow “Financing-Guaranteed Fund Transfer-Make a Guaranteed Fund Transfer” steps to transfer GFT amount through Internet and Mobile Branch.
It is a non-cash financing under the guarantee of Vakıf Katılım for the deferred payments to be made by the buyer in return for the goods and services purchased from the seller.
Our customers who wish to make a GFT transaction must have a GFT account or a financing limit at our Bank. Our customers can benefit from GFT with the details of seller, financing amount and maturity.
On maturity date, the relevant amount is withdrawn from the buyer’s account and automatically transferred to the seller’s account by the system. The GFT balance in GFT accounts is closed and transferred to the relevant current account with “Paid at Maturity” status. If the GFT amount was transferred by the seller to another seller, the payment is made to the account of such transferee seller. In the event of insufficient balance in buyer’s account, the payment is made to the seller by Vakıf Katılım and the buyer becomes indebted to Vakıf Katılım.
Cash + Funded GFT, which is formed by combination of the features of GFT and Funded GFT products, is paid through any of 3 different methods below according to the account balance status of the customer on the maturity date.
