Letters of Credit

Letters of Credit

From review to verification, Acorn Intl Letter of Credit service can help reduce your risk when trading overseas.

Importing and exporting involves risks. Exporters run the risk of buyers failing to pay for goods, while importers may risk paying but never receiving anything. Because of the distances involved, it may be difficult to resolve any disputes.

One way of reducing the risks is to use a letter of credit. This can offer a guarantee to the seller that they will be paid, and the buyer can be sure that no payment will be made until they receive the goods.

Prices start at £350 +VAT.
