To do business abroad is essential to evaluate the risks of default and the choice of the carefully international payment method. 75% of companies operate in countries with a high country risk rate (political, economics, currency risks). At the same time, the remaining part carries out its activities in a fast-evolving and diversified context. In an economic relation, sellers and buyers have opposing interests: the first want to be sure to be satisfied with the goods and services bought. In contrast, the latter wish to receive the payment before going ahead with the exchange.
With the trade solutions offered by Credit Glorious Property Holdings, both of them will be able to mediate through their interests to start and consolidate international businesses without fear.
DOCUMENTARY COLLECTION IMPORT/EXPORT
Documentary collections are a compromise solution between le letter of credit and the open account. They offer greater protection of the trade risk than the latter, but less than the first. With this financial product, as for the letter of credit, the payment of a certain sum is guaranteed on the documents' delivery as required by the contract. Still, in this case the financial institute acts only as a trustee that delivers the documents under certain conditions. Yet, it is not given the irrevocable order to proceed with the payment.
In this case, the importing company protects itself because it pays the sums requested only after submitting the documents, and the exporting company protects itself against the risk of not receiving the sums agreed, but less strongly than with the letter of credit.
The documentary collection is a flexible economic instrument, but its use is recommended when the parties have already had business relations and the trade risks are lower, when there is no doubt about the fulfilment of the transaction's obligations or when the country risk rates are low.

IMPORT/EXPORT LETTERS OF CREDIT
The letter of credit is the most used international payment method in import/export transactions. It
guarantees the transaction's success through an institutional intermediary, such as a bank, to whom is
given the irrevocable order to pay a certain sum after receiving the documents.
This documentary credit involves four parties (applicant, beneficiary, issuing bank and advising bank). After theapplicant provides the documents in conformity with the letter of credit's resolution and the
documents' delivery is successful, the exporting company will receive the payment agreed. With the letter
of credit, intermediary banks have a payment obligation: that is why using it in your trade relations
constitutes a choice with a high level of safety since it resizes the risks of default with a guarantee that goes
through all stages of the transaction.
The letter of credit protects both the importing company because it involves payment only after the documents' emission (e.g. transport documents) and the exporting company. Opening a documentary credit, the bank cannot deny the payment once the papers have been issued correctly. It is often used when the companies do not know each other, when there are uncertainties for the importing company to meet its commitments or when the country risks are high.
It's an instrument with easy and uniform guidelines that include, however, a good outcome, a document's request according to international regulations (Uniform standard and practice by the international chamber of commerce and International Standard Banking Practice) meeting the deadlines.
