Letters of credit are indispensable for international transactions since they ensure that payment will be received. Using documentary letters of credit allows the seller to significantly reduce the risk of non-payment for delivered goods, by replacing the risk of the buyer with that of the banks. Letters of credit have become a crucial aspect of international trade, due to differing laws in each country and the difficulty of knowing each party personally. But if there isn’t a pre signed letter of credit or no period of extension clause is mentioned in the contract provision even then the debtor can send a notice to the creditor for extension of notice period. Most extensions are related to delays beyond the debtor control, and many involve change order requests.
