We investigate the impact of well-established trade credit theories on different parts of the distribution of trade credit taken by firms. Our results suggest that the trade credit – bank loans substitution increases at the higher trade credit quantiles and is stronger for larger firms (financing theory). Firms with high market shares operating in less concentrated industries have higher account payables to assets ratios (bargaining power theory). While the customer bargaining power motive strengthens up to the 70th quantile and prevails in industries independent from external finance, financing reasons play the main role especially at the higher trade credit quantiles.
