Understanding the function and effects of documents used in Trade Finance is essential to obtain financial security for all parties involved.

Exporters and importers are responsible for making sure that the commercial contract stipulates appropriate documents that each can reasonably be expected to provide. For example, if the contract requires that the exporter must present a document that the importer holds, trouble will certainly follow. Banks need to understand the underlying transaction to be able to assess their risk of potential losses or to eliminate the possibilities of financial crime or breach of law or violation of sanctions.
