What is Alza Invoice Financing?
Alza Invoice Financing (AIF) is a fast way to shorten invoices within our business relationship using a simple and user-friendly interface. We launched the service in response to demand from our suppliers, to improve operating cash flow and pre-finance receivables from Alza.cz.
What is the purpose of the service?
The main task of Roger Invoice Financing is to finance trade flows between the customer and the supplier in order to optimise their working capital. Operation is simple, using a user-friendly web interface.
Who runs the AIF?
We have prepared the service for you in cooperation with the Roger Payment Institution, which helps companies optimise working capital by financing invoices with long maturity dates. Thanks to Alza’s implementation of electronic data interchange (EDI), the invoices are uploaded automatically to the platform. Roger as a licensed institution by Czech National Bank operates the AIF through its wholly owned subsidiary Invoice Financing.

Frequently Asked Questions
Alza Invoice Financing („AIF“) is a new and quick method of negotiating a discount in a business relationship between you and the company Alza.cz a.s. thanks to simple and user-friendly interface. AIF serves to your occasional or regular need to enhance operational cash flow.
Service AIF will shorten due dates of invoices exactly as you need. As soon as you register into the interface of AIF, you can start choosing invoices to finance and your money will arrive within 3 days. You can now do your business peacefully thanks to flexible and effective method of operational financing.
AIF is destined to suppliers of Alza.cz who are interested in shortening the due dates of invoices.
Typical users of AIF are:
- Small and middle-sized companies which cannot develop their business quickly enough due to long due dates of invoices and insufficiency of operational capital.
- Companies which operate in business which is influenced by seasonal fluctuations and long-term financing is not profitable for them.
- Companies which have complicated access to bank financing due to short financial history.
The price is set as an interest rate of 8.4 % p.a. from the financed value of a claim. For example, shortening the due date of invoice by 30 days will cost you 0.7 % of the claim’s financed value. With high billing volumes, the price may be lower. You can find the exact price, that we call discount, directly in the Alza Invoice Financing interface.
To register into the interface of AIF you have to enter Identification No. (IČO) of your company, choose a login email and have a mobile phone nearby to receive the confirmation code.
Contrary to bank factoring, you don’t have to guarantee a minimal volume of invoicing. The service can be used regularly or to cover seasonal fluctuations or to finance just one invoice. Everything depends on you. The entire communication is electronic so you can avoid unnecessary paperwork.
Returns of goods or set-offs can occur during the relationship between a buyer and a supplier. Buyers then pay their debts with respect of the value of these set-offs. Therefore, we use the reserve in the amount (usually 25 % of the invoice's value).
The shortening of due dates is only possible for invoices sent through EDI and confirmed by Alza.cz through positive COMDIS.
Such invoices are displayed in the summary of invoices in the interface of AIF and you can choose these where you want to shorten the due date and release the working capital.
If you don’t see the invoices in the interface, it is caused by the fact that they were not yet confirmed by positive COMDIS or they were rejected for some reason.
A delay can occur between the sending of the invoice and its confirmation. In such case, the invoice is being processed by Alza.cz and it is necessary to wait for the confirmation of the invoice. If the waiting time for positive COMDIS is longer than usual then, please, contact the Alza.cz department of administrative support for the receiving of goods. Please do not contact the department Finance – Accounting.
The state of the invoices can be tracked directly in the interface for EDI.
Due date can be shortened at the moment of issuing the invoice or anytime later. Minimal period for shortening the due date is 14 days.
The financing can be tailored up to your needs. The usage of AIF is not conditioned by any limits, monthly fees or hidden charges.
You can finance invoices in the value of hundreds of czech crowns but also invoices in the value of millions of czech crowns. Currency billing is not important, we are able to finance even euros without limits.
