French term or phrase: relevé de LCR / BOR à payer
Bonjour,

Contexte : une usine en Estonie est sur le point d'ouvrir un compte en banque en France. Le PDG souhaite également mettre en place un service internet auprès de cette banque.

C'est un formulaire à traduire, avec comme option de réponse oui/non.

Je suis complètement nulle en vocabulaire financier même en français :-( mais je dois faire cette traduction, car c'est pour un ami.

Merci à tous ceux qui pourront m'aider ! La suite des autres mots à traduire viendra plus tard....

English translation:Statement of Bills of Exchange / Promissory Notes
Explanation:
LCR = lettre de change relevé
BOR = Billet à ordre relevé

I believe if it is followed by "oui/non", it could be asking if the user would like to receive these statements. But, without additional context I cannot be 100% sure whether that is the case.

According to investopedia.com:
Bills of exchange are similar to checks and promissory notes. They can be drawn by individuals or banks and are generally transferable by endorsements. The difference between a promissory note and a bill of exchange is that this product is transferable and can bind one party to pay a third party that was not involved in its creation. If these bills are issued by a bank, they can be referred to as bank drafts. If they are issued by individuals, they can be referred to as trade drafts.

I hope this helps!

Also, I did not include "à payer" since a synonym for promissory note is "note payable" and by definition they are owed.

agree  rkillings: But DO include 'payable'. For the *holder* of a promissory note, it's a receivable!
