Why are Drafts so popular for overseas payments?
• Drafts may be enclosed with letters or invoices and forwarded direct to the Payee.
• If a draft is lost or stolen the draft can usual y be stopped and a new draft issued. However, it is
important to note that a draft can only be stopped once it has been confirmed that the draft has not
already been presented for payment. If a draft has been presented for payment it is not possible
for it to be stopped.
• A Draft is an economical method of transferring funds to a specific company or person overseas. • A Draft provides security of payment as it is a non-negotiable instrument and can only be credited to
the Payee’s bank account unless the Payee has endorsed the draft.
