The sales contract, which is direct correspondence between importer and exporter, is called Pro forma invoice. There is no intermediary between them. On the other hand, there may be an agent of exporter in
importer’s country. In this regard, if the sale contract is occurred between the agent of exporter and importer then it is called indent.
