What is a Documentary Remittance?
A Documentary Remittance is one of the most used means of payment in international trade.
The "Remittance" or "Collection" consists of the processing of financial and/or commercial documents from the foreign party, carried out by a Bank on behalf and order of its Customer (Exporter) and according to the instructions received, in order to:
- obtain payment and/or acceptance;
- submit documents against payment and/or against acceptance;
- submit documents under other terms and conditions.
It is a product that is used when there is already some degree of confidence between the economic agents. Thus, it allows you to reduce the commercial and financial risks inherent to your international activity. The exporter trusts in the importer's capacity to fulfill the agreed payment dates, and the importer trusts that the exporter will execute dispatches on the stipulated dates.
Types of Documentary Remittances
Depending on the constituting documents, Documentary Remittances can be designated as:
- Clean Remittances: involves the collection of financial documents (bills of exchange, promissory notes, checks, or others).
- Documentary Remittances: implies the collection of financial and commercial documents (Invoices, Contracts, Bills of Lading, among others).
As an exporter company
as an importer company
- You keep possession of the goods until payment or acceptance of the bill, provided that the commercial documents that transfer ownership were not previously remitted to the importer.
- You save time since it is the bank that processes the documentation.
- Control over payment.
Main Collection Methods:
- Documents Against Payment (Cash Against Documents) - the Presenting Bank (Drawee Bank) must only deliver the documents to the drawee (importer) against payment of their value.
- Documents Against Acceptance (Documents Against Acceptance) - the Presenting Bank (Drawee Bank) must only deliver the documents to the drawee (importer) against acceptance of the accompanying bill, which implies deferred payment.
