The credit application form is issued by a broker or customer with the intent of standardizing the information it uses to make credit decisions. Additional information may be used in making a credit decision, such as a credit report from a credit rating agency and information received from the credit references supplied by the applicant.

Based on the information in a completed form, a credit analyst may elect to grant or deny credit, or may impose additional conditions, such as a personal guarantee or collateral. The granting of credit through an online form is highly automated, so that the entire process may only require a few minutes to complete.

The Bill of Lading is a document, issued to a shipper/exporter by a carrier, which describes the products to be shipped, recognizes their receipt and states the conditions of the contract for their carriage.

There are two types: A straight bill of lading is non-negotiable. A negotiable BOL, or shipper’s order bill of lading, can be bought, sold, or traded while goods are in transit. It is commonly used for letter-of-credit transactions. The shipper is responsible for completing the bill of lading and providing the completed document to the carrier at the time the shipment is sent. The receiver usually needs the original, or a copy, as proof of ownership to take possession of the goods when delivered.

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a preferential tariff program, which allows null or decreased duties for products that qualify under its provisions. A NAFTA Certificate of Origin should be supplied along with goods that qualify for reduced or duty-free entry as a product of any of the three participating member nations: The United States of America, Canada and Mexico.

The certificate should be filed with the commercial invoice for any shipment destined to the U.S., Canada or Mexico valued at $1600.00 CAD or more. But beware, not all shipments crossing the border qualify for preferential NAFTA treatment. In actuality, the nature of the goods will always determine NAFTA treatment. The form is usually available in English, French and Spanish.

The Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) or the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) are responsible for updates to the form and NAFTA regulations. Please see our external resources section for links to both agencies.
