In many cases, DHLB conducts business with another business organization which is a local agent of a multinational business organization.

So the Head offices of many local agents make their due payments to DHL Bangladesh via wire transfer resulting in inward remittance. There are monthly 12-14 remittance received. About 5-10% percentages of total revenues earned is via Inward Remittance. Inward Remittances Withdrawal Process: 1. Mr. Hossain Asgar Shahriar, Management Accountant at DHL Worldwide Express (BD) Put Ltd. communicates with Citibank NA every seven days to find the exact remittance amount DHLB has received. 2.

The Bank credits the amount to DHLB’s account immediately after they receive the C-Form from DHLB. 4. Citibank NA deducts 10% of the remittance amount as ATI. DHL| Page 5

  11. 11. Recommendation  Instead of calling every seven days to their bank to know the amount of remittance they received, DHLB should call every 3 days. This way the received amount will be available to them early.  If possible DHLB can maintain a FC account. It will quicken both the inward and outward remittance process.  Better communication with the customers is another key to improving the process. They could be either encouraged or discouraged for remittance payment according to the needs of DHLB. For example: DHLB could encourage inward remittance just before their revenue sharing. This way the received dollar amount is not converted twice instead it could be used to make payment of the amount due for the outward remittance.  Better communication with Citibank NA can help set a proper value date and know the availability of dollars in the market.
