On receipt of the remitting bank’s collection instruction and the documents, the collecting bank will examine what has been received, check the schedule of instructions it has been given, and make sure that the documents attached are as described and in the correct number of originals and copies. Collecting
banks are not required to look to the documents for any instructions.
For the collecting bank, the collection will often be referred to as an ‘inward bill for collection’.
The collecting bank, normally a correspondent of the remitting bank based in the buyer’s country − the collecting bank, as agent of the remitting bank, will present the documents to the drawee (usually the
buyer of the goods) for payment or acceptance. It should request the drawee to pay the funds on an account of the bank.
There is also a possibility that the additional collection documents are received by the collecting bank through 2nd mail. In this case there will be an already created contract, where the user (as recipient of the documents) can select a contract party or another party, who is only entered in this transaction. There will not be any bookings done in this transaction.
