What are Letters of Credit?

A letter of credit is a guarantee from your bank that other companies you do business with will receive the goods or services you promised. Letters of credit are frequently used in international trade deals.

How do Letters of Credit work?

Applying for a letter of credit is similar to the process of applying for a business loan. There is an application fee based on the amount of the guarantee. However, interest only accrues if payment is made to the beneficiary of your letter of credit. As long as the transaction goes through as planned, you won’t have to pay anything beyond the application fee. The letter of credit gives your business partners more confidence in your ability to follow through on the deal.
