Import with peace of mind

Enjoy financial security when you’re exporting
As a supplier, you need the peace of mind of trading with reputable buyers and the guarantee of payment - in order to produce orders. Let us help you with that.
Avalisation is a win-win situation
Exporters may require a third party, usually a bank, to guarantee payment of a bill of exchange drawn on an importer under a trade contract. This action is known as avalisation and you can request it from Barclays.
