"You can avoid having to make cash advances or prepayments."
- An effective way to speed up transactions, build your relationships and eliminate cash advances or prepayments.

- A Letter of Credit or Letter of Guarantee may be required by an organization (e.g. a municipality, Saskatchewan Lotteries, Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming; inventory suppliers and fuel suppliers) to ensure your business can meet its obligations to that organization.

- It is a written undertaking by Synergy Credit Union to pay money to a third party, conditional upon presentation of a certificate or other written demand for payment together with specified documents. In other words, it is your financial institution saying, in effect, "This business/operation is reputable and will keep its promise."
