The system standardizes the ILC application process, speeds up applications for amendments and shipping guarantees. The system can handle the complete transaction lifecycle including drawings.

Import Documentary Credit

When are Import Documentary Credits used?

An Import Letter of Credit is a commitment given by the Importer’s Bank to pay the Exporter on the Importer’s behalf using a pre-agreed Credit Facility. Payment is only made if the Importer’s bank receives specified documents about the transaction from the Exporter. The Import Letter of Credit sets out the documents to be provided and the conditions to be met.
