Citibank offers credit to buyers in Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia and the Middle East, who may find it difficult to obtain international loans themselves. Citibank`s credits help exporters minimize the importer`s country risk and the issuing bank`s commercial credit risk. This type of letter allows a customer to make, within a given period, any number of draws within a given limit. This is a direct payment method in which the issuing bank takes advantage of payments to the beneficiary. On the other hand, a standby credit is a secondary payment method in which the bank only pays the beneficiary if the holder cannot. Banks also charge a fee for the service, usually a percentage of the size of the accrediting agency. The International Chamber of Commerce Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits monitors accreditations used in international transactions. There are different types of accreditors. Standby accreditations have an expiration date and are used to secure monetary policy commitments, ensure that a down payment is repaid, and to ensure that a sales contract is concluded. This type of letter is usually used to strengthen a customer`s creditworthiness.
In most cases, a standby credit is never actually used, especially when the customer makes payments on the terms set by the seller. A letter of credit or “accrediting” is a letter from a bank that guarantees that payment from a buyer to a seller is received on time and in the right amount. If the buyer is unable to make a payment for the purchase, the bank is required to cover the total or remaining amount of the purchase. It can be proposed as an establishment. Commercial accreditations have a long history in international trade. For international affairs, the letters are supervised by the International Chamber of Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits. The provisions of this group are necessary for all parties. In the United States, national collections are monitored by the Commercial Code uniform. Due to the nature of international trade, including factors such as remoteness, different laws in each country, and difficulties in knowing each party personally, the use of credits has become a very important aspect of international trade.
