Service Features

SCB's letter of credit confirmation service provides you with payment assurance when exporting into emerging-market countries or other risky situations where you are unsure whether you will receive payment for goods because you do not trust the credibility of the L/C issuing bank or the country of the bank that issued the L/C.
You may advise the importer that an L/C is being issued by nominating SCB to be the advising/confirming/negotiating bank, and the conditions of the L/C payment must be stated as reimbursement.

To submit the L/C documents to SCB, the importer should be advised the following SCB address:

Bank Name: Siam Commercial Bank Public Company Limited
Once the exporter submits the requisite documents in accordance with the terms of the L/C, SCB will pay instead in the event that the L/C issuing bank is unable to pay or if payment is prohibited by law in the nation where the L/C is issued.


SCB can verify payments for L/Cs issued by more than 800 overseas partner banks in over 120 countries across continents, including developing markets or emerging nations around the world.
You can reach our professional assistance from any of SCB International Trade Service Centers located across the country.



Ensure to Pay
Be assured that you will receive money from export because SCB guarantees payments on behalf of the L/C issuing bank if the issuing bank is unable to make the payment.
Broaden Your Trade Base
Open up more export potential under L/C with new global partners and new high-risk markets, since SCB can validate payments from over 800 banks in 120 countries around the world.
Enhance Your Financial Liquidity
You can increase your company’s liquidity by asking SCB to purchase or discount the accounts receivable on the L/C confirmation with or without recourse. 1
Reduce the time and effort required to prepare and file withholding taxes resulting from the fees of L/C confirmation. 2
