It has come to our attention that the American Bankers Association (ABA) recently sent a letter to you that once again does what they have consistently done, describe in misleading and inaccurate ways the Farm Credit System and how it serves agriculture and rural America. We find it particularly ironic that ABA, representing the banks that caused one of the most costly financial crises and economic downturns in our Nation’s history, is maligning the efforts of the Farm Credit System to serve agriculture and rural America as Congress intended. While the banking industry’s failings caused a severe contraction in the rest of the economy, agriculture enjoyed a period of sustained growth and stability as Farm Credit institutions stood with the sector to ensure that credit was reliably available at competitive rates and terms.

The term letter of credit (LC) is not uncommon in international trade as it is the most frequently used method of payment by seller and buyer in their sales contract. LC serves its significant role by facilitating payment between buyer and seller from different countries, who are always prejudiced towards each other on the issue of payment, especially when the deal involves a huge amount of money. By using LC, the seller and buyer will be represented by their own bankers whose function, among others is to issue an LC for the buyer and pay on presentation of seller’s documents which strictly comply to LC requirements. It is well-known that LC is governed by the principle of autonomy or also referred to as the principle of independence 1 which indicates LC, being a contract

Abstract: A letter of credit (L/C), in international trade may be described as an instrument of finance carrying a conditional guarantee of payment from the overseas (buyer’s) bank to the seller. Consequently, a L/C is desirable in high value and/or high risk transactions. The guarantee is conditional upon the seller complying 100% with the documentary requirements of the L/C, an issue of particular concern to exporters, as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) estimates worldwide documentary discrepancy rates of 70%. L/C transactions are governed by ICC rules, and whilst these provide an international standardised process, the differing interpretations of what constitutes documentary compliance create difficulties for sellers in particular. The new rules: UCP 600, supposedly have simpler and clearer wording, to reduce ambiguity and differences in interpretation, and hopefully reduce documentary discrepancy rates and the associated financial risks. This article examines the major changes introduced by the UCP 600 and comments on their likely impact on future L/C business. Whilst acknowledging some improvements were introduced in the UCP 600, the article concludes that a number of issues have been ignored to the detriment of traders.

Abstract: Letter of credit (LC) is still favourite choice in international trade (export and
import) payment mechanism. One of LC superiority among other payment mechanisms is the existing of issuing bank definite undertaking to pay exporter, as long as such exporter be able to present documents which comply with letter of credit and other international best practices. However, not all of the exporter are able to make the best use of LC optimally, while it is predicted that at least 70% of documents presented to bank were discrepant. Discrepancy causes the undertaking of issuing bank to be no longer valid, and gives rise to some consequences, starting from the deducting discrepancy fee and delay payment by issuing bank which leads to exporter cash flow problem, the possibility for price cutting by applicant, or even refuse to pay by issuing bank (unpaid). Inspite of those consequences, discrepancy also could influence negative impact to exporter reputation and bargaining position to its overseas counterparty.
one clause was that “Shipment can only be effected after the letter of credit applicant has nominated the carrying vessel by way of subsequent tested telex amendment to this credit via opening bank to advising bank, the tested telex amendment must accompany original documents presented for negotiation”, which seems to fall in the first type of letter of credit soft clauses as discussed earlier. The other clause was that “Inspection Certificate to be issued prior to shipment and signed by authorized signatories of applicant whose signatures must be verified by letter of credit issuing bank”, which falls into the second type of letter of credit soft clauses. With these two letter of credit clauses, the buyer controlled the transaction by nominating a ship, and controlled the letter of credit payment by issuing an inspection certificate. In this case, the beneficiary seller was required to pay the deposit of performance of contract in advance, with the amount of 5 -10 percent of the whole contracting amount, in order to get a letter of credit issued. After 10 million RMB remitting to the bank account instructed by the buyer, the deputy of the buyer immediately withdrew it from the bank. Thus the buyer intended to deceive the performance deposit from the seller by taking advantage of inserting such letter of credit soft clauses.
