Precisely to answer the many questions on the subject, Antonio Di Meo has conceived and created a specific book  edited in 2018 by Wolters Kluwer (ipsoa) which explores the different forms of payment and guarantees in use in international exchanges, and the implications with other clauses of the underlying contract and with the delivery term of the goods (Incoterms®).

The matter is treated in a schematic way to facilitate practical and effective consultation, with the hope that every company will be able to derive a useful and effective operational advantage. The main topics concern the application of knowledge of the various forms of payment and guarantee (both banking and insurance) adopted internationally and what Incoterms® represent in the definition of the price, in the distribution of costs, risks and responsibilities.

The individual topics are developed with a practical approach, providing for each:

  • the definition and their function

  • the main features

  • the legislation of reference

  • the risks, advantages and disadvantages

  • the main points of attention

  • the reference documents and forms

This Guide is full of useful material and suggestions for practical solutions that prevent the company from meeting the countless risks associated with the foreign market and internationalization.
