How to Prepare, Negotiate and Execute Error-Free Letters of Credit

Letters of credit are the primary instrument for assuring payment of goods sold internationally. Issued under the Uniform Customs and Practice standard, letters of credit can be negotiated by over 30,000 banks worldwide. If you or your organization uses letters of credit, it’s crucial for your staff to understand how to effectively handle them.

Even in a business environment that is free trade-oriented, particular caution needs to be exercised by companies when they agree on payment terms. With financing options in addition to letters of credit that include sight drafts, time drafts, open terms and cash in advance, both exporters and importers need to understand the implications of their credit practices and policies.

This webinar by expert speaker Douglas Cohen will provide both exporters and importers the necessary insight to make well-informed credit decisions despite the challenges associated with the implementation of international payment terms. In this program, Douglas will use a combination of real life scenarios and easy to understand explanations that will help importers and exporters understand the details of how to prepare, negotiate and execute error-free letters of credit.
