Export documentary collection

We can help you manage your export documents so that you can devote more time to growing your business.  You’ll find this process is more cost effective than a documentary credit, due to its simpler process.  In addition, the complete documentary collection process is monitored and is available in most major currencies.

Export documentary letter of credit

We can help with the process surrounding your documentary credit.  Upon receipt of documents from you, Westpac checks that the terms and conditions of the documentary credit have been complied with, before forwarding the documents to the buyer’s bank.

Export collection negotiations

We can provide you with short term, post-shipment finance by negotiating (or buying) the bill of exchange for up to 100% of its face value.
