SBLC – Standby Letters of Credit explained by Geordon Saraveloz

0 Comments

A standby letter of credit (SBLC) is a legal document that guarantees a bank’s commitment of payment to a seller in the event that the buyer–or the bank’s client–defaults on the agreement. The buyer is certain to receive the goods and the seller certain to receive payment. An SBLC is often sought by a business to help it obtain a contract.

There are two main types of standby letters of credit
• A financial SLOC guarantees payment for goods or services as specified by an agreement. An oil refining company, for example, might arrange for such a letter to reassure a seller of crude oil that it can pay for a huge delivery of crude oil.
• The performance SLOC, which is less common, guarantees that the client will complete the project outlined in a contract. The bank agrees to reimburse the third party in the event that its client fails to complete the project.
