Accelerated Payment - L/C and Bill Discounting

There is no need to wait for payment once you have shipped your goods.  BACB can provide L/C beneficiaries with a tailored discounting service for documents presented in conformity with a usance L/C issued or confirmed by us. Alternatively we may be prepared to discount bills of exchange or promissory notes issued in connection with open account or bill collection sales, subject to these instruments being issued or avalised by counterparties acceptable to BACB. 

We are an active participant in the London markets and so are well placed to offer prompt and competitive quotes in all major currencies and a growing number of Arab Mediterranean currencies in which we act as a market maker.
