time bill
A bill of exchange payable at some future date, for example, 90 days after the date of the bill or after sight (that is, acceptance or refusal by the drawee), is called a time, term or usuance bill/draft. On delivery of a time bill to the drawee, if he accepts his liability to pay on the relevant future date, he signs the bill, thereby becoming liable on the bill. He is then called the acceptor.
It is one of the ways in which a letters of credit may provide for payment by the nominated bank.
