When a business wants to trade internationally, the exporter would typically want to be paid up front by the importer. The bank would issue a Letter of Credit, which guarantees this payment to the exporter upon receipt of documentary proof that the goods have been shipped. This is then repaid once the importer has paid for the goods, which could be anything between 30-180 days later.
What is the SIC Code for Iron and Steel Finance?
The SIC Code is 07100 (Mining of iron ores)
Other SIC Codes that could also be used are:
- 24100 Manufacture of basic iron and steel and of ferro-alloys

The business was growing and being increasingly successful in winning bids for various house builders. They could not finance the steel that was needed and so looked for a source of flexible finance. By using trade finance it granted them the much-needed facility in order to fulfil orders and expand the business.
The finance provided allowed the business to chase, win and deliver on big contracts, ensure that their product supply was not an issue and be more responsive to both new and existing customers.
