A Standby Letter of Credit is a guarantee that is made by a Bank on behalf of a Client, which ensures payment will be made even if their Client cannot fulfil the payment. It is a payment of last resort from the Bank, and ideally, is never meant to be used.
A letter of credit is basically a guarantee from a bank that a particular seller will receive a payment due from a particular buyer. The bank guarantees that the seller will receive a specified amount of money within a specified time. In return for guaranteeing the payment, the bank will require that strict terms are met. It will want to receive certain documents – for example shipping confirmation – as proof.
A Revolving Letter of Credit is a single Letter of Credit that covers multiple transactions over a long period of time. It is very specific in a way that it is used for regular shipments of the same commodity between the same Buyer (Importer) and the Seller (Exporter). This Letter of Credit is issued only once for a certain number of transactions. It avoids the need for repetitive arrangements to open a new Letter of Credit for every transaction.
A bank guarantee is an assurance that a bank provides to a contract between two external parties, a buyer and a seller, or in relation to the guarantee, an applicant and a beneficiary. The bank guarantee serves as a risk management tool for the beneficiary, as the bank assumes liability for completion of the contract should the buyer default on their debt or obligation.
The Documentary Letter of Credit at Sight is a banking instrument and payment mechanism
which ensures the delivery and payment terms of both the Exporter and the Importer are met through their respective financial institutions. It is a form of economic guarantee that is widely used between cross border transactions between two parties who are working together for the first time. The “Document” referred here will include all the necessary details such as obligations which the importer has to fulfil. Usually this document is sent by the Importer`s Bank to the Exporter`s Bank through a secure Interbank transmission method, ie Swift. “At Sight” stipulates and demands that the Buyer`s Bank should disburse the necessary payments after the Seller has fulfilled all the criterions mentioned in the LC document.
