Cash Credit is a facility to withdraw the amount from the business account even though the account may not have enough credit balance. The limit of the amount that can be withdrawn is sanctioned by the bank based on the business cycle of the client and the working capital gap and the drawing power of the client. This drawing power is determined, based on the stock and book debts statements submitted by the borrower at monthly intervals against the security by hypothecating of stock of commodities and/ or book debts.
Clean Overdraft is an overdraft facility wherein overdraft amount can be utilized for working capital needs. The primary security herein is the property and stock and debtors are considered as collateral security. Further, there is no requirement of submission of monthly stock statement and calculation of monthly drawing power, since the stock statement is to be submitted annually.
A trade finance mechanism whereby an exporter sells its export receivables (bills of exchange or promissory notes, or simply issued invoices, which the exporter is selling on an open account basis) at a discount. The company purchasing the receivables is called a factor. Factors are normally specialized financial services companies, but many are owned by banks. Normally, after the factor has purchased a receivable, the importer or buyer pays the factor directly.
Some factors actually issue the invoices to buyers and in effect, operate the exporter’s sale ledgers. Some factors operate on a non-recourse basis i.e. they assume the risk of non-payment. Less frequently, the factor will take recourse to the exporter for all or part of the sums involved in the event of non-payment or delayed payment by the buyer.

The OD limit is ascertained based on the income from agricultural land. The security to be given can be any other property other than agricultural land. The primary security herein is the property and stock and debtors are considered as collateral security. Further, there is no requirement of submission of monthly stock statement and calculation of monthly drawing power.
Buyer’s credit is the credit availed by an Importer (Buyer) from overseas lenders i.e. banks and financial institutions for payment of his imports on a due date.

In fact the Importers Bank brokers between the Importer and the overseas lender for arranging buyers credit by issuing its Letter of Comfort for a fee. Buyer’s credit helps local importers access cheaper foreign funds close to LIBOR rates as against local sources of funding which are costly compared to LIBOR rates. Buyers Credit for goods purchases can be for a period of up to 6 months.
