Import trade financing Export Trade Financing: Export L/C operation is just reverse of the import L/C operation.
For exporting goods by the local exporter, Bank may act as advising bank and negotiating for the exporter. As a negotiating Bank, it receives documents from the foreign importer and hand it over to the exporter.Sometimes it adds confirmation on the L/C on request from the opening Bank. By adding confirmation it assumes the responsibility to make payment to the exporter. As negotiating Bank, it negotiates the bills and other shipping documents in favor of the exporter. That is, it collects proceed of the export-bill from the drawer and credits the exporter’s account for the same. Sometimes the banks purchase the bills at discount from the local exporter and waits till maturity of the bill.
When the bill matures, Bank presents it to the drawer to Ancash. In our country, export and import operations of Bank is very much related with one another because of use on Back to Back L/C.Most of the L/C opened is Back to Back L/C and maturity of payment for Back to Back L/C is set in such that it can be paid our of export proceeds. So export and import sections works as one unit. These two operations can hardly be separated from one another in the branch. Exporters need finance in the following manner: • Pre-shipment Finance. • Post-shipment Finance.
1. Pre-shipment Finance: The exporter may avail of facilities during pre-shipment stage in the following ways: i. Back-to-Back Credit. ii. Packing Credit. i. Back-to-Back Credit: Under this arrangement IFIC Bank finances an export by opening a letter of credit on behalf of the exporter who has received a letter of credit form the overseas buyer but is not the actual manufactures or producers of the exportable goods.
The letter of credit is opened in favor of the actual producer or supplier within or outside the country. Since the second letter of credit is opened on the strength of, and backed by, another letter of credit it is called “Back- to-Back Credit”. The need for a back-to-back credit arises because the beneficiary or the original letter of credit may have to procure the goods from the actual producer who may not supply the goods unless its payment is guaranteed by IFIC Bank in the form of a letter of credit. The supplier is generally paid after negotiation of the documents. Since this type of financing is somewhat risky, IFIC Bank sometimes asks for collateral security before opening letter of credit.The back-toback letter of credit must confirm to the terms and conditions of the original letter of credit. Back-to-Back L/C condition: Security • Lien and physical possession of export L/C in favor of the Bank (affixing lien mark on it).
• Imported items will be stored in a bonded warehouse under joint and effective control of bank and customs authority after clearing through the approval C; F agent. Other conditions • Drawing to draft clause • Import of raw materials in proportion to the working capacity and convenience of the factory • Treatment of interest • Undertaking must be given by the party in case of any failure to export the goods • Time of opening L/C and negotiation within specific periodBack-to-Back L/C shall be opened only in the currency in which export L/C would be receive to avoid loss due to exchange fluctuation ii. Packing Credit: Packing Credit covers the credits extended by IFIC Banks to the exporters prior to the shipment of the goods. Such credit is granted to the exporter for procurement and processing of raw materials, manufacturing of finished products, packing and transporting goods meant for export to foreign countries. Such facility is allowed to an exporter just at a time when he has the foreign buyers order by the way of confirmed export letter of credit or a firm contract. When the order is executed, the packing credit gets paid out of the proceeds of the bill drawn on the foreign buyer. Post Shipment Finance: Post shipment credit is given to the exporters by banks after the actual shipment of the goods.
The necessity for post shipment credit arises because the exporters who have shipped goods have to wait for a long time for receiving payment from the overseas buyers; the period of waiting depends on the terms of payment. The exporters need funds to carry on his normal export activities. IFICBL are the natural source to seek the finance for these activities. IFICBL generally finance the exporters at post shipment stage on verification of the credit worthiness and financial soundness of both the buyers and the sellers. Import Finance Trade:International trade takes place between sellers and buyers located in different countries. The parties to a trade transaction are not always known to each other. Even if they are known to each other the seller may not have full confidence in the credit worthiness of the buyer or the buyer may not like to pay before he actually receives the goods.
In Letter of Credit worthiness is substitute for the credit worthiness of the importer. Under a banker’s Letter of Credit, the issuing bank (IFICBL) gives a written undertaking on behalf of the buyer that the bank will honor the obligation of payment or acceptance as the case may be, on presentation of stipulated documents.Importer bank issue the Letter of Credit at a margin prescribed by the Government. This margin varies to commodities to commodities. According to the Govt. instruction bank does not generally issue the Letter of Credit less than at 50% margin. IFICBL follows this margin prescribed by Government strictly.
These are: • The L/C should irrecoverable, unrestricted valid and preferably confirmed. • The credit worthiness of the importer and his import performance are to be invariably ascertained. Similarly, credit worthiness and solvency of the buyer and seller also be enquired through foreign correspondence. • In case of pledge “Banks affective Control’ should maintained. The exporter documents should be carefully scrutinized at the time of negotiation to ensure with the terms of the L/C.

IFIC Bank assets are in the form of loans with a large portion in securities, since these are the main sources of income for IFIC bank. Cash: Cash is obviously an asset to a bank. A bank must maintain a certain level of cash compared to its liabilities to maintain solvency.
A bank must hold some cash as reserves they have to keep some cash to conduct business which includes being able to meet withdrawal requests and to meet reserve requirements that are set by the Bangladesh Bank to help prevent insolvency. | Year |Amount in Tk. |2005 |2146612028 | |2006 |2646787635 | |2007 |3593513841 | |2008 |3340418678 | |2009 |4633980079 | [pic] Cash is an expensive asset in terms of opportunity cost because it earns no interest—therefore; banks try to minimize the amount of cash that they hold.

IFIC Bank invests more in 2009 compare in other years.
In 2009 IFIC Bank Ltd investment 86. 40% in Government securities which is more than compare in other years. However, investment-grade securities are liquid, and they have higher yields than cash, so it’s always prudent for a bank to keep securities on hand in case they need to free up some liquidity. Loans and Advances: Loans represent the majority of a bank’s assets. A bank can typically earn a higher interest rate on loans than on securities, roughly 6%-8%. Year |Amount | |2005 |21694895612 | |2006 |25490660668 | |2007 |28361456225 | |2008 |33018385382 | |2009 |37793886723 | IFIC Bank Ltd gives correspondingly more Loans and advances.

In 2009 they buy more fixed assets compared in other years.
Percentage change in fixed cost sometimes percentage change for EBIT.If useful lives of assets do not differ significantly as it was previously estimated, bank management does not consider revaluing its assets by the meantime. Other Assets: Other assets, including property and equipment, represent only a small fraction of assets. A bank can generate large revenues with very few hard assets. Compare this to some other companies, where plant, property, and equipment (PP&E) is a major asset. | Year |Amount | |2005 |1194269731 | 2006 |986779144 | |2007 |1361334367 | |2008 |1640263398 | |2009 |2419136205 | [pic] Other assets include stationery and stamps, suspense account, Revaluation A/C FDBP, Revaluation A/C IDBP and Accounts receivable others.
