Letters of Credit Preparation

What is a Letter of Credit?

A documentary credit, or more popularly known as a ‘Letter of Credit (L/C)’, is a guarantee issued by a bank assuring payment of goods. The L/C will have strict terms specifying the amount of money to be paid, time frame and documentation required. Studies show 75% of all first time applications are rejected by the bank, resulting in unnecessary charges.
