Commerce - supply chains - supply chain finance (SCF).

A tier 3 supplier is an individual or organisation that is part of our supply chain, but not a direct supplier.

The tier 3 supplier is a third level connection of ours, supplying goods or services to our tier 2 suppliers.

In turn, our tier 2 suppliers provide goods or services to our tier 1 (direct) suppliers.

All of our tier 3 suppliers are therefore indirect links to ourselves, in our supply chain.

Deep-tier financing supports suppliers
"There are also alternative [supply chain finance] support structures in use, in particular what is known as ‘deep-tier’ financing.
This approach sees treasury at end customers provide support not just to tier 1 suppliers, but also to those in tiers further along the supply chain."
The Treasurer May 2023 Issue 2, p10.
