What is an Export Letter of Credit?

For exporters the main concern is getting paid. Apart from receiving payment in advance, the next most secure method of trading is on export letter of credit terms. This is simply a mechanism whereby the exporter provides proof to a bank that the goods have been shipped and, provided the documents comply with the terms detailed in the letter of credit, the bank will pay.

What can Synergy Do for You?

However, getting paid depends solely on meeting the paying bank’s stringent compliance terms so it literally pays to be sure that every ‘i’ is dotted and every ‘t’ crossed. Synergy’s skilled, knowledgeable staff will take away the hassle and uncertainties, handling the process from start to finish with the utmost efficiency.
