Bill of exchange transactions

Bill of exchange discounting

Bill of exchange discounting is a form of loan of a business entity by the bank by means of purchasing a bill of exchange for money at a discount up to the time of its payment, in order to gain profit from bill of exchange payment in full. Discounting operations performed by the bank include non-resource discounting and discounting with reverse.

Non-resource discounting is a type of accounting, where a bearer of bill is no longer a party liable on a bill as a result of non-resource endorsing on a bill by its bearer or due to transfer of a bill to the bank by a bearer without endorsing, if the last endorsement is in blank.

Discounting with reverse is a type of discounting, where a bearer of a bill lays non-bill obligation on the bank to clear bills discounted by the bank prior to their payment. This type of discounting differs from the standard one by the fact that settle of a bill is not performed by a party liable on a bill – payer (a drawer of a standard bill or an acceptor of a bill of exchange), but a bearer of a bill liable to clear a bill.
