Factoring (Cross-Border Factoring) The accounts receivable are sold to a third party (the factor), that then assumes all the responsibilities and exposure associated with collecting from the buyer. Trade Finance Methods:  Letters of Credit (L/C) These are issued by a bank on behalf of the importer promising to pay the exporter upon presentation of the shipping documents. The importer pays the issuing bank the amount of the L/C plus associated fees. Commercial or import/export L/Cs are usually irrevocable. Trade Finance Methods Trade Finance Methods:  Sometimes, the exporter may request that a local bank confirm (guarantee) the L/C. Trade Finance Methods Letters of Credit (L/C) The required documents typically include a draft (sight or time), a commercial invoice, and a bill of lading (receipt for shipment). Example of an Irrevocable Letter of Credit:  Example of an Irrevocable Letter of Credit Documentary Credit Procedure:  Documentary Credit Procedure Trade Finance Methods:  Variations include standby L/Cs : funded only if the buyer does not pay the seller as agreed upon transferable L/Cs : the first beneficiary can transfer all or part of the original L/C to a third party assignments of proceeds under an L/C : the original beneficiary assigns the proceeds to the end supplier Trade Finance Methods Letters of Credit (L/C) Trade Finance Methods:  Banker’s Acceptance (BA) This is a time draft that is drawn on and accepted by a bank (the importer’s bank). The accepting bank is obliged to pay the holder of the draft at maturity. If the exporter does not want to wait for payment, it can request that the BA be sold in the money market. Trade financing is provided by the holder of the BA. Trade Finance Methods Banker’s Acceptance:  Banker’s Acceptance Trade Finance Methods:  In general, all-in-rates are lower than bank loan rates. They usually fall between the rates of short-term Treasury bills and commercial papers. Trade Finance Methods Banker’s Acceptance (BA) The bank accepting the drafts charges an all-in-rate (interest rate) that consists of the discount rate plus the acceptance commission. Life Cycle of a Typical Banker’s Acceptance:  Life Cycle of a Typical Banker’s Acceptance 8. Pay Discounted Value of BA 1 - 7 : Prior to BA 14. Pay Face Value of BA 10. Sign Promissory Note to Pay 9. Pay Discounted Value of BA 16. Pay Face Value of BA 15. Present BA at Maturity 14 - 16 : When BA matures 8 - 13 : When BA is created Trade Finance Methods:  Working Capital Financing Banks may provide short-term loans that finance the working capital cycle, from the purchase of inventory until the eventual conversion to cash. Trade Finance Methods Trade Finance Methods:  Medium-Term Capital Goods Financing (Forfaiting) The importer issues a promissory note to the exporter to pay for its imported capital goods over a period that generally ranges from three to seven years. The exporter then sells the note, without recourse, to a bank (the forfaiting bank). Trade Finance Methods Trade Finance Methods:  Countertrade These are foreign trade transactions in which the sale of goods to one country is linked to the purchase or exchange of goods from that same country. Common countertrade types include barter, compensation (product buy-back), and counterpurchase. The primary participants are governments and MNCs.
