Export collection negotiations

Short term post-shipment finance.

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. In addition, you can expect:

  • A credit period of less than 180 days
  • No minimum limit
  • No delays - we'll give you the payment on presentation of documents


  • Fixed term to match that of the underlying trade transaction (not to exceed 180 days)
  • Interest can be charged on a discount (establishment) or yield (payment) basis.


  • The terms of the negotiation will match that of the underlying trade transaction as long as this doesn't exceed 180 days
  • A credit assessment will be undertaken so that we can endeavour to supply a credit limit based on your trade needs
  • If the bill or documents forwarded overseas for payment are refused or dishonoured after acceptance, we have recourse to you.
