DIAN launches RADIAN, a key platform for the reactivation

Factoring, together with electronic invoicing, are powerful tools
that will allow a dynamic reactivation of the national economy.

Bogotá D.C., August 5, 2021. The Directorate of National Taxes and Customs has just launched the electronic invoice registration platform known as RADIAN, which allows updating and maintaining the information of the transactions made with these invoices and register them as securities.   This platform represents a new way to obtain liquidity for installment sales, especially for micro and small entrepreneurs.

RADIAN is an easy-to-access tool that generates confidence in entrepreneurs. Operations carried out with electronic invoices, such as electronic factoring and guarantees, are recorded by Radian, maintaining the traceability of ownership and the uniqueness of these electronic documents.

There are many actors who have made and are making technological developments around the RADIAN, such as factoring companies, trading platforms, technological suppliers, financial institutions, and these offer to entrepreneurs various options to carry out operations with their electronic invoices as a security title and register them in the RADIAN; in this way, competitive discount rates can be obtained, giving birth to social factoring, providing entrepreneurs with greater profitability and liquidity.

Factoring and electronic invoicing are powerful tools that will allow a dynamic reactivation of the national economy, incorporating new technologies to deepen this market in Colombia.
