The corporate customers of Unibank can also use the documentary collection service whereby we, acting as the remitting bank, send the documents specified in the contract (invoices, waybills, insurance and customs documents, etc.) to the importer’s bank for collection; the importer’s bank, in turn, will forward the documents to the payer in accordance with the instructions and against payment or acceptance.
The documentary collection provides greater security guarantees in comparison with a direct wire transfer because it will not let the buyer to receive the executive and accompanying documents and as a result the goods without having paid for the goods previously. Another advantage is, the customer spends less on bank fees. The payments are made faster in comparison with settlements over an open account.
