About Documentary Collection

  • Documentary Collection is one of the conventional documentary payment instruments mainly used in foreign trade and respected in most countries
  • It is an ideal solution in situations where the trade partners are not prepared to trade without any security.
  • Documentary Collection is namely suitable in cases where lower risk does not require bank’s involvement in the contractual relationship
  • The payment of Documentary Collection is not secured by the bank’s obligation
  • We recommend this instrument in situations where the seller has no doubts about the buyer’s willingness and/or ability to take and pay for the goods
  • It is suitable in cases where the political, economic, and legal environment in the buyer’s country is regarded as stable
  • Documentary Collection gives the seller a guarantee that neither the presented documents nor goods (in case of documents of title) will be released to the buyer without compliance with the collection terms and conditions, usually in the form of:
    • Documents against payment
      • Presenting bank only releases documents to the buyer against a payment order for the collection settlement
    • Documents against acceptance
      • Bank only releases documents against the acceptance of a bill of exchange/issuance of a promissory note by the buyer
