How the transaction works

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.

Case Study

Infrastructure Cable Provider, York

The company is the second largest provider of cable in the UK. It provides telecommunications to universities and large corporates on a reactive basis, but their big problem was a lack of confidence in fulfilling large contracts recently won. The company agreed an £800k facility and were able to immediately finance their imported stock from abroad at a fixed cost.

What this finance did was give the business the confidence to chase, win and deliver on big contracts, ensure the warehouse was fully stocked for incoming reactive opportunities, and fulfil customer service turnarounds of 1-3 days.
