Letters of credit

• Letters of Credit (LC) is an example of OBSAs (Off-Balance Sheet Activities). LC simply says that if a firm cannot make a promised payment within say 90 days, the bank will make the payment. There is no immediate liability that shows up on the balance sheet and the bank earns a fee income for the guarantee.
