Methods of Payment and Letters of Credit- Online

THIS one day course covers the 5 main types of payment for exports, from advance payment to open account, including Sight Documentary Collection and Documentary Letters of Credit.  It includes the use of Bills of Exchange with and without documents.

With over 75% of first presentations to banks against letters of credit being rejected, businesses are aware of the additional costs discrepancy fees can incur.  This course aims to provide delegates with detailed information on how to be pro-active in opening a Letter of Credit, how to work with the documents and present to the bank correctly.

At the end of the programme, delegates will have a clearer understanding the main methods of payment for export, the rules and regulations around Letters of Credit, and gain confidence and experience in preparing documentation.
