Letter of Credit-i

What is Letter of Credit-i?

Being a trading company or manufacturing outfit, purchases are normally on cash basis or with a limited credit line and period granted by the suppliers. A Letter of Credit would always be used as a payment term for overseas and local purchase.

Securing a bank facility for Letter of Credit is never easy. Even if a company is able to secure a facility, the terms can be unsettling. For a Letter of Credit, an upfront security deposit of up to 40% of the LC amount would normally be required. For any overdraft or term loan, a sinking fund would also be part of the terms and conditions which may take up the company’s remaining cash flow.
