The Incoterms rules or International Commercial Terms are a series of pre-defined commercial terms published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). They are widely used in International commercial transactions or procurement processes. A series of three-letter trade terms related to common contractual sales practices, the Incoterms rules are intended primarily to clearly communicate the tasks, costs, and risks associated with the transportation and delivery of goods. The Incoterms rules are accepted by governments, legal authorities, and practitioners worldwide for the interpretation of most commonly used terms in international trade.

Letter and credit. Guarantee for lowering risks of transactions


How it works

  1. 1. Buyer and seller conclude a trade agreement, agreeing on delivery of goods, quantity, quality and payment that will be made with a Letter of Credit.
  2. 2. Buyer delegates its bank (issuing bank) to open a Letter of Credit on behalf of seller in accordance with conditions agreed by both parties. Letter of Credit can include in your opinion most important conditions of the transaction – description of goods, price per unit, term of payment and a list of documents that the seller has to submit to the bank. The bank will evaluate your security.
  3. 3. The issuing bank sends the Letter of Credit to announcing bank that usually is located in the country where the seller of goods is registered.
  4. 4. Seller’s bank (announcing bank) announces to the seller about the opened Letter of Credit and makes aware of its conditions.
  5. 5. When conditions of the Letter of Credit are received, the seller compares them with the trade agreement, If Letter of Credit does not correspond to the requirements of the agreement, the seller has the right to require changes in the Letter of Credit. Please note that Letter of Credit is a document that cannot be revoked therefore it cannot be cancelled or annulled without agreement from all parties.
  6. 6. If the Letter of Credit corresponds to the requirements of the agreement, the seller sends goods to the buyer and submits documents required in the Letter of Credit to the announcing bank.
  7. 7. Announcing bank checks the submitted documents. If they correspond to the conditions of the Letter of Credit, the bank can pay for them in the form agreed on in the Letter of Credit – by making immediate or deferred payment, by acceptance or by negotiation of Letter of Credit documents.
  8. 8. Announcing bank sends the documents to the issuing bank. After repeated check of the documents the issuing bank makes payment to the announcing bank that makes settlement with the seller.
  9. 9. Issuing bank takes off the respective amount from the buyers account and returns the documents to the buyer, as a result of which the goods are transferred for the use of the buyer.
