Our corporate and investment banking benefits
We’ll help you manage the risk of importing or exporting
With a Letter of Credit, the payment risk is effectively transferred to NBC. You can therefore negotiate better price discounts with your suppliers or request extended credit terms to help improve your own cash flow.
|Import Letter of Credit
|Export Letter of Credit
This is an irrevocable undertaking, given by NBC as the 'Issuing Bank' at your request an importer to pay your beneficiaries or suppliers against the presentation of the compliant documents.
In this case, an applicant or buyer (your customer) is issuing a Letter of Credit from his bank to you through NBC (as advising bank) and we will check for its apparent authenticity. If deemed to be authentic, we will notify or advise you as a beneficiary of the necessary actions to be taken.
Let us help you keep your business cash flow healthy
