Payment condition / payment security - a key part of the contract


from payment conditions and payment securities to export financing

• Payment conditions

We offer a basis for your in-house workshop «Payment conditions», possibly together with the subject «Payment securities», for ex.:

  • Variations of different payment conditions, with or without securities
  • A graphic presentation of various payment/security conditions and the risk development

• Payment securities


Solid payment securities are a main part of solid payment conditions. We offer base information, for ex.:

  • The handling of Letters of Credit
  • Other security instruments, such as Stand-by L/C's, Letters of Indemnity (bank guarantees), drafts or promissory notes, including exotic and doubtful securities offered from time to time.

• Export financing


Export financing structures usually involve various partners, their administration can be complex and costly. However, an offer including a financing possibility may play a very positive role in the export business, even if a contract is not financed in the end.

There are many different structures possible. When considering export finance as part of an contract, the control over the risks involved and the related costs must be part of the considerations.

We will put a documentation together on the subject "Export financing – possibilities and risks".
