In the past, our purchases of steel pipes from you have normally been paid by confirmed, irrevocable letter of credit.
This arrangement has cost us a great deal of money. From the moment we open the credit until our buyers pay us normally ties up funds for about four months. This is currently a particularly serious problem for us in view of the difficult economic climate and the prevailing high interest rates.
If you could offer us easier payment terms, it would probably lead to an increase in business between our companies. We propose either cash against documents on arrival of goods, or drawing on us at three months sight.
We hope our request will meet with your agreement and look forward to your early reply. Yours faithfully, Tony Smith Chief Buyer
专候佳音。采购部主任托尼·斯密思谨上 2000年5月20日 答复 20 May 2000 Kee & Co., Ltd 34 Regent Street London, UK Dear Sirs:
Thank you for your letter of 20 May asking for a change in payment terms. There is nothing unusual in our current arrangement. From the time you open credit until the shipment reaches your port is normally about three months. In addition, your L/C is only opened when the goods are ready for shipment.
I regret to say that we must adhere to our usual practice and sincerely hope that this will not affect our future business relations. We will contact you as soon as supplies of the steel pipes you require come into stock.. Yours faithfully, Tony Smith Chief Seller
贵公司五月二十日要求改变付款条件的来函收悉。 现行的付款条件并无不妥。贵公司只在准备装运时才开立有关信用证,而由开立信用证至物到达贵公司港口一般约需三个月。 为此,未能满足贵公司要求,实感抱歉,并期望此事不致阻碍双方日后的业务发展。一俟贵公司所需钢管运抵,本公司即与贵公司联络。销售部主任托尼·斯密思谨上
