Access the working capital you need and improve cash flow by bridging the gap between settlement with suppliers and payment from buyers.

Access the working capital you need and improve cash flow by bridging the gap between settlement with suppliers and payment from buyers, putting you in the position to negotiate better prices. Our import finance solutions offer flexible financing options, fixed or variable repayments and a drawdown process on individual transactions to qualified importers. This is combined with our international trade expertise, which enables us to design a structure to suit your specific trading cycle.

Our import solutions

Import documentary collections

Give suppliers payment assurances as you protect your interests by confirming that goods have shipped according to your specifications before making a payment.

Import documentary credits (letters of credit)

Let HSBC pay suppliers on your behalf, giving suppliers added peace of mind that they will receive payment after presenting the correct documents and you the comfort that documents evidencing the goods have been shipped will be presented before your supplier is paid.

Import finance

Streamline access to working capital and protect against currency fluctuations by funding the difference between outgoing and incoming payments. Includes documentary credit reimbursement finance.

Shipping guarantees

Speed up receipt of imported goods by providing freight carriers with a shipping guarantee backed by HSBC.
