Payment and performance guarantees
Payment guarantees — refers to the obligation of the bank to pay an amount to the seller if the buyer violates the terms of the contract and/or defaults on the payment by the date as defined in the contract.
Performance guarantees – refers to the obligation of the bank to pay the buyer an agreed amount if the seller does not fulfil its contractual obligations.
Guarantees of return of an advance payment – refers to the obligation of the bank to re-pay the buyer the advance payment paid by the buyer under the contract in case of the seller’s failure to fulfil the conditions of the contract on the supply of goods/services or refusal or inability to return the advance payment received.
Advantages of bank guarantees:
- The ability to get a payment deferral (commodity credit) for buyers from the counterparties.
- Ability to ensure return of the advance payment for the buyer if the seller defaults on contractual commitments.
- Minimising the risk of non-fulfilment of the contractual obligations by the counterparty.
- A more cost-effective financial instrument in comparison with lending or factoring.
