This document outlines the key stages in the receiving and processing of a leased SBLC. Buyers must provide sufficient proof of identity to enable the anti-money laundering checks to be made. All our SBLC’s will be ‘fresh cut’ and issued via SWIFT or Hard Copy depending on the client and contract needs, which means they must have financial backing.

Prior to issuance, we engage with ‘Account Holders’ to ensure there is sufficient cash backing to any instrument issued. For the avoidance of doubt, the leased SBLC process utilizes USA-based escrow agents, to hold funds for the SBLC issuance stage of the process. This ensures that the buyers have the funds to transact each stage and it also ensures that once the provider has delivered each stage that they are paid without delay. For each payment/stage, the payments are to cover the work being undertaken, once that work has been done, there are no refunds.
