  • Export Letters of Credit

    A Letter of Credit (L/C) is issued by the buyer’s/importer’s bank and sets a range of terms and conditions, which can be evidenced by documents presented by the exporter. The L/C is then forwarded to the seller’s/exporter’s bank who ‘advise’ it to the seller/exporter. Documents presented by the seller/exporter are then checked by both banks and the buyer’s/importer’s bank is committed to pay, or accept to pay at a future date, on behalf of their client, if the documents are compliant (correct).
