Cancellation of Letter of Credit

Any amendment is subject to mutual agreement between the LC Applicant and LC Beneficiary through their intermediary banks to facilitate such amendments.

With the price going high, beneficiary have a right to request you to amend the LC - In case it is not agreeable to you, you may refuse to amend the LC - Beneficiary will be compelled to supply merchandise as mentioned in the Original LC or LC will continue untill its expiry.

However, In case you want to clean oout your LC Facility from the Bank, you must ask the beneficiary to confirm their willingness to cancel the LC and confirm the cancellation to LC issuing Bank.

Hi! LC may be cancelled

Hi!

LC may be cancelled only under consent of issuing bank, confirming bank and beneficiary.

So at least beneficiary's agreement is mandatory.

Have You asked beneficiary for LC cancellation?

If he is not will cancel LC then there is no way than just to wait when LC become expired.

Good luck
