Export discounting

Product descriptions

Export discounting refers to that Fudan Bank purchases from the exporter under the export L/C the unexpired usance bill which has been accepted by a bank, or the unexpired forward claims undertaken to be paid by a bank. The Bank has the right of recourse against the exporter if the accepting/committing bank fails to pay at the due date.

Product functions

The product is used to meet the short-term financing requirements of the exporter under the usance L/C.

Product features

1. Speed up capital turnover. The forward claims can be recovered at any time, which will speed up the capital turnover and relieve the pressure of capital.

2. Simplify financing procedures. Compared with the working capital loans, the financing procedure is simpler and easier.

3. Save financial expenses. The financing currency can be selected according to the interest rate of different currencies, so as to save financial expenses.

Applicable customers

1. The current capital of exporters is limited, so they rely on the rapid capital turnover to carry out business;

2. The exporter suffers temporary capital turnover difficulties after receiving acceptance/commitment by any foreign bank and before receiving the payment;

3. The exporter encounters new investment opportunities after acceptance/commitment by any foreign banks and before collection, and the expected rate of return is higher than the discount rate.

Application conditions

I. Basic conditions

1. The applicant has been approved and registered in accordance with the law, and has an annually legal person business license or other valid documents which can prove its business legitimacy and business scope;

Business flow

1. The exporter signs a financing agreement with the Bank and submits export documents to the Bank.

2. After checking the documents, the Bank sends them to a foreign bank (issuing bank or designated bank) for reimbursement.

3. After receiving the documents, the foreign bank accepts/commits to pay the Bank.

4. After receiving the acceptance/commitment, the customer submits an application for discount business to the Bank, and the Bank then remits the discount amount net of interest expenses receivable to the exporter's account.

5. The foreign bank pays the Bank by the due date, and the Bank will use it to return the payment of discount, and the balance will be deposited into the exporter's account.

2. The exporter shall submit documents under the L/C via the financing bank;

3. After the issuing bank/designated bank accepts the usance bill or issues the notice of commitment, the exporter shall submit the discount application to the financing bank.
