Discounting D/A ODC

Simple is Beautiful; the only thing came in my mind when thought of documentary collection. And I think more and more people are thinking the same in these days. Documentary Collection offers us far greater security than selling on open account; but not as much as a documentary credit. We should therefore be more cautious before starting selling using this method of payment. Documentary Collection Forum is an effort to help you on this way – admin;

Discounting D/A ODC

Post by mohamedbahgat » Fri Oct 13, 2017 2:50 am

How can a bank can save its rights while discounting a draft against acceptance under a documentary collection taking in to consideration that the collecting bank will not avalize this draft ? what if the drawee accepted the draft and the goods were in a good order but he refused to pay ,what can the discounting bank do in this case ?

if the drawee accepting the draft it will then liable to pay the collecting bank on every cost on or before the date of maturity, and with respect to your question of discounting to drawee, remitting bank will get the payment from collecting/presenting bank on or after maturity.

Hi Pal,

probably you have recourse against your customer/drawer, the collecting bank may note or protest the accepted draft, then the drawer may sue the drawee for no payment as per contract terms.
By discounting a bank bears the risk of no payment at maturity.

Discrepant documents against LC at sight

Post by rezaeselim » Mon Mar 04, 2019 12:46 pm

We opened an Irrevocable Letter of Credit at sight for importing paper products. In the LC, there is clause that no documents would be earlier than LC issuing date but our supplier made all documents' date earlier than LC issuing date. Then our supplier sent the discrepant document on collection basis. Our bank asked discount the value and our supplier accepted USD 70000 discount from their value USD 214000. Now my question is which value our bank will endorse in Commercial Invoice? Is it USD 214000 or USD14000?
