A standby letter of credit is the bank’s undertaking of fulfilling the applicant’s obligations.

A standby letter of credit is issued as collateral and is therefore not intended to be used as a primary payment method, unlike a commercial letter of credit.

A standby letter of credit will be liquidated only if the applicant default of its responsibilities under the underlying contract. As a result, the standby letter of credit serves as a secondary payment option.

On today’s post, I would like to share a standby letter of credit sample in swift format.

Recently I have explained the reason why I have started to put sample letters of credit on my website.

Please read our previous article titled “Sample Letters of Credit – Part I” “Introduction to working with a letter of credit sample” to understand pros and cons of lc samples.

I also highly recommend you to read “Sample Letters of Credit – Part II” – “Guidelines How to read sample letter of credit texts on my web site” before starting to study my standby letter of credit sample.
