Letter of Credit Red Clause Letter of Credit: Red Clause Letters of Credit provide the seller with cash prior to shipment to finance production of the goods. The buyers issuing bank may advance some or all of the funds. The buyer, in essence, extends financing to the seller and incurs the risk for all advanced credits.
Letter of Credit Standby Letter of Credit This credit is a payment or performance guarantee used primarily in the United States. They are often called non-performing letters of credit because they are only used as a backup should the buyer fail to pay as agreed. Thus, a stand-by letter of credit allows the customer to establish a rapport with the seller by showing that it can fulfill its payment commitments.

PRACTICAL BANKER1. When you pay a CHEQUE, where the signature is forged but could not be detected while verifying, can you get a legal protection?2. A CHEQUE when bounced without funds, can a holder of the same, who is not the direct payee, but an endorsee sue the original signatory/drawer of the CHEQUE?3. You bounce a CHEQUE by mistake though the customer had funds in the account. The customer sues YOUR bank for very large amount of damages, though the CHEQUE amount is very small. Can the customer succeed in the case?4. In a loan account there are dues both of interest and installments. When a customer remits some part amount, does not mention as to whether it is for the interest or for the installment.

After sometime, your customer your customer comes with the counterfoil, which is easily readable and demand payment/ proper credit to his account. You argue that he should have written the account number correctly and since he has erred he should suffer the loss. He goes to court. Who will succeed?

Branch server communicates with UBS production servers at Centralized location on an online basis and ensures both local branch database and production database are in sync. To communicate with production servers, branch server is configured with production server IP Addresses and ports. Users from the branch connect through browser based application or CITRIX FCR branch application connects to the production database using ODBC and Application server using COM server of the branch.

WORKING CAPITAL GAP TANDON COMMITTEE1. Working Capital gap = Current Assets – (Current Liabilities- Bank limit for Working Capital) Maximum 75% of the identified gap can be financed. Rest of the gap to be financed by own funds or on long- term basis as a term loan. 15 industries were basically identified, which covers cotton, jute, rubber, pharmaceuticals, cement, engineering, automobile industries etc. The norms cover limits of Raw materials, Semi-finished products, finished products & receivables.
METHODOLOGY OF FINANCINGI Method is financing for WC up to 75% of the gap identified as above. Excess was converted as TL. II Method envisages financing up to 75% of the net current assets only. III Method envisages financing of core current assets up to the full extent and rest of the 25% needs to be financed through own resourcesMIS statements were considered mandatory and defaults would attract penalty interest over and above of the contracted rate.
CHORE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS As per this, all banks were directed in December 1980 that Method 2 should be applied for all accounts where the working capital limit is Rs50lakhs and above. Different types of advances, cash credit, loan and bills types to continue. Bifurcation of cash credit limit into demand loan and fluctuating cash credit portions - not favored. Seasonal Credits studied in detail analyzed.
NAYAK COMMITTEE Preference to village industries, tiny industries and other small-scale units in that order. TANDON Committee will not apply for working capital credit limits up to Rs50lacs from the banking system for the above category. 25% of the output value should be computed as WC requirement, of which at 4/5th should be provided by Banking Sector, the remaining 1/5th, representing borrowers contribution towards margin money for the WC
VAZ COMMITTEE VAZ committee has extended the concept of NAYAK committee to all business enterprises This is deviation to previous committees!
WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT It is complicated at the international level because: a. Some countries do not have the concept of working capital. b. Receivables and payables are in multi- currencies. c. Credit terms vary internationally.
Methods to manage working capital – 1 Inventory Mgt i. 1 A good inventory management system- some of the techniques of inventory control are: a) Just-In-Time (JIT): Its applicability depends upon the country. b) ABC Analysis c) EOQ- Balancing inventory carrying cost against unit order cost. d) Reorder Level.
2 Managing Receivables Credit scoring model can be devised (for internal transactions) Only rated clients (for big transactions of MNC’s) Taking security (when risky) Debt period analysis i.e. within 3 months, between 3 and 6 months, above 6 months etc. Offer a discount for immediate settlement. For a depreciating currency, calculate a discount and offer it immediately. Forfaiting is a technique to manage receivables as the rights of an unpaid seller may not be applicable in every country.
