BEYOND TRADE FINANCE A Critical Analysis, and an Alternate View, of the Rules for International Trade and Documentary Credits.

Author Name: RUPNARAYAN BOSE | Format: Paperback | Genre : Business, Investing & Management | Other Details
Amazon Sales Rank: Ranked #5 in International Business

If you think that the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Paris on trade finance and documentary credits have no surprises left for you, then read this book very carefully from cover to cover. Whether you are a trade finance veteran or a recent entrant, the articles in this book will provide you with a few unconventional and unusual perspectives about the UCP and the ISBP rules.

The book discusses selected provisions of UCP 600, and also raises several pertinent questions. For example, does the SWIFT MT700 really provide for an expiry date? Is article 15 necessary? Why shouldn’t UCP sub-article 16(f) apply to a nominated bank? Did you know that UCP article 10 on amendments has a huge logical error? Why are some critical rules missing in the UCP (they are only in the ISBP)? Are you aware that sub-articles 14(g), and 14(h) on non-documentary conditions, are both incorrectly structured? Which ICC ‘rules’ apply if a presentation contains only copies of transport documents? Must a B/L or a MMTD show a date of issue? What is ‘negotiation’? Why is the place where a credit is available of critical importance to an exporter/beneficiary? 

Go ahead and read the book. It will provide you with plenty of food for thought, a deeper understanding of the rules of trade finance, and value for money.
