In-house banking

In-house banking brings your corporation a host of advantages, from centralizing your group-wide payment processes, with Payments/Receivables on Behalf of (POBO/ROBO) or cash pooling, to simplification of account structures and efficient funding. It enables you to consolidate your subsidiary exposures and reduces the need for external trades.

However, in-house banking often requires massive administration and laborious centralization. tm5’s unique take on in-house banking streamlines this by allowing subsidiary trade requests to central treasury to be initiated, negotiated and captured directly within the system. Intercompany deals are tracked in full detail, facilitating the process of intercompany trade management, while preserving integrity of intercompany trade data for both the subsidiary and the in-house bank. Benefit from an efficient intercompany account setup to track cash pool transactions automatically. With tm5, you take your in-house banking to the next level without the administrative nightmare.

Payments on Behalf of

With every group company integrated into the in-house bank, Payments on Behalf of becomes simple. Local subsidiary payments can be easily routed through central treasury to reduce the number of bank accounts required, limit FX risk and enable all transactions to be processed smoothly.

Full visibility of cash positions

Enable your subsidiaries to track their cash position using fully automated processes. Use bank or intercompany accounts to settle internal deals, make intercompany payments and settle your netting results directly within one system.

Internal trading platform
