When Do You Choose Outward Remittance? 

The importer and the exporter co-operate for a long time and have a mutual trust, so payment in advance is acceptable to the importer or open account is acceptable to the exporter; 

The commodity to be traded is in a buyer’s market in which the credit standing of the importer is high while that of the exporter is less so, so the importer requires open account; 

The supply of goods is tight and the importer is willing to pay in advance to facilitate the trade; 

Insurance and freight costs, commissions, sample fees and proceeds from a claim can be paid by outward remittance; 

Final payment in trade can be paid by outward remittance. 


The outward remittance should be subject to foreign exchange regulations in China, and valid documents should be submitted if required by the regulatory authority of foreign exchange; 

Please provide the following documents: application form for remittance, commercial documents, payment order to foreign exchange account or RMB cheque for foreign exchange purchase.
