A Letter of Credit is a written undertaking issued by a bank assuring the buyer’s payment towards the seller. It is also called irrevocable LC, Import LC, LC at Sight, LC MT700, DLC MT700. This is to assure the seller that they will receive the payment for the supply of goods, once they submit the shipping documents.
Due to the nature of global trade dealings & its risks factors including distance, different laws in each country, and trust issues between the traders, the use of Letter of Credit has become a vital part of global trade. When a buyer & a seller from two different parts of the world decided to do business, there might be uncertainty in trust and payment will arise. To bridge the gap between the traders & to build trust, Letters of Credit are being used.
Usually, Import LC & LC at Sight which is valid for 90 days and 180 days is always irrevocable. It means a bank provides an irrevocable commitment to the seller, that they will get paid if they comply with the terms stated in the issued Irrevocable Letter of Credit. Also, it assures that if the buyer is unable to make the payment or went bankrupt, then the bank will be liable to fulfill the payment terms as agreed in the contract. Hence this is an irrevocable commitment made by the bank, Letters of Credit are mostly preferred by buyers and sellers, as an LC Payment Term in International Trade.
When it comes to global trade, buyers run the risk of not receiving goods from the seller for which they have already paid. On the other hand, sellers run the risk of nonpayment by the buyer for the supplied goods. Hence, in this case, the traditional payment method used earlier for global trade has failed. So, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) introduced MT700 to secure the interests of both parties involved in trading.
While using LC Payment Term, the buyer’s bank assures to pay the seller for the supplied goods; upon complying with all terms & the submission of documents as stated in the issued Letter of Credit. In case, if the seller fails to submit the documents before the deadline, the LC will be expired. Then the bank will return the funds to the buyer’s bank account which they deposited while LC Opening. Hence, this way, the risk of default in the payment & the delivery of goods goes down to zero percent.
