Letter of credit-i

What is Letter of credit-i?

A Letter of Credit is a letter from a bank guaranteeing that a buyer’s payment to a seller will be received on time and for the correct amount. IFSB provides such a service, particularly to businesses who does international trade.

Due to the nature of international dealings (such as differing laws in each country), the use of letters of credit is an important aspect if your business does international trade. It is also a way to obtain short-term finance as it is a strong and reliable collateral, given that the recovery rate is close to 100%.

More about Factoring-i

Factoring is a sales and purchase transaction between a factor (the factoring company) and its client. As an intermediary, the factor purchases the client’s trade but gains ownership of the debts as well and in return allows the factor to collect payments from the client’s customers. To be clear, factoring is not a loan facility or is a factoring company a debt collection agency.
