About the Webinar

When you are selling cross border and think that using a letter of credit is too complicated, or when you want to conduct your business on an open account basis but don’t feel 100 % comfortable with the payment or country risk of the customer, a Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) may be a viable option for you.

Deciding that you want to work with SBLCs is the easy part, but now you have to decide what kind of SBLC you want to have, under what rules and subject to what law?

This webinar will examine SLBCs as a vehicle for financing your A/R receivables. SBLCs can be beneficial in certain circumstances but there are also pitfalls to their use internationally.

Among the topics covered during this webinar will be:

• What is an SBLC?
• How are they obtained?
• Requirements for SBLCs
• Supporting documentation
• How do SBLCs differ from letters of credit?
• When to use SBLCs
• Different types of SBLCs
• How does an SBLC differ from a bank guarantee?
• Regulations governing their usage
• What are the fees?
