Bank Letters of Credit Discount Line

DISCOUNTING DRAFT UNDER THE EXPORT USANCE LETTER OF CREDIT

 

An export  letter of credit may call for the draft to be drawn at a certain number of days after sight or after the shipment date. Typically, the drafts are drawn on the LC issuing bank. Once the LC issuing bank has accepted the documents/drafts, the negotiating bank may consider to discount and pay to the beneficiary in advance before the maturity date.

 

DISCOUNT RATES

These rates vary with the amount and tenor. The discount rate is based on the risk of the country of the LC issuing bank and reputation of the LC issuing bank.
