What is this course about?

Getting paid or making payments on international transactions can appear complicated and risky. How is payment made to or from another country? When is payment due? How can I be sure I’ll be paid if I’m an exporter? How can I be sure I’ll receive the goods I ordered if I’m in importer? How do letters of credit work?

This course will explain the procedures and methods in international payments for goods and services. It will cover crucial topics such as:

Currency risk

Country risk

Agreeing payment terms with a customer or supplier

An overview of letters of credit. How they work and how to avoid the pitfalls

Legal processes for non-payment and non-delivery

Retention of title

Who should attend?

Everyone who has any connection with sales or purchases and the international supply chain. This seminar will remove misunderstanding and shine a light on which terms are better for your individual business needs.

Export administrators and managers who have had no formal training

Buyers, purchasing and procurement staff who need to understand key issues to correctly obtain prices and understand the true “cost of ownership”

Freight forwarders and clearing agents who may be asked by their clients to make this important legal decision when entering goods to customs
