Product Detail

  • SCB provides short-term working capital financing to your company when you ship goods under a Letter of Credit (L/C) or Bill for Collection (B/C).  The value stated in the trade documents determines how much financing we can provide.
  • SCB will send the collection documents to your customer's bank (the L/C Issuing Bank). After SCB receives their payment, we settle the financing provided to your company.
  • Purchase/Discount of documents under L/C can be done in either of two ways:
  • 1. Purchase/Discount with recourse is when SCB has a right of recourse to your company if the L/C Issuing Bank does not make payment on the L/C.

    2. Purchase/Discount without recourse* is when SCB has no right of recourse to your company if the Issuing Bank does not make payment on the L/C. In this case, SCB accepts the risk of the L/C Issuing Bank.

    * Under terms and conditions determined by SCB.
