Related to Accepting Bank: Notifying Bank
A bank in a country to which another bank sends a letter of credit on behalf of a client. The accepting bank honors the letter of credit and transfers requested funds to the client. This is similar to an advising bank, though the latter term refers exclusively to a bank in different country; an accepting bank may be (but is not necessarily) in the domestic country.
