A Standby Letter of Credit is a financial guarantee issued by a bank on behalf of a client to assure payment to a beneficiary if the client defaults on their obligations.


While both SBLCs and LCs are financial instruments used to facilitate international trade, SBLCs are typically used as a backup payment mechanism when the primary obligation is not met, whereas LCs are used as a primary method of payment.

SBLCs are often used in international trade, real estate transactions, and various business agreements to provide assurance that a financial obligation will be met. They can be used in a variety of situations where a payment guarantee is required.

When a beneficiary (the party owed the payment) does not receive the payment they are due, they can present the SBLC to the issuing bank. If the defaulting party does not make the required payment, the bank will honor the SBLC by making the payment to the beneficiary.

    • Applicant: The party requesting the SBLC.
    • Issuing Bank: The bank that issues the SBLC on behalf of the applicant.
    • Beneficiary: The party who will receive payment under the SBLC if the applicant defaults.
    • Advising Bank: The bank that advises the SBLC to the beneficiary and may also confirm it.
