Types of Bank Guarantees and SBLC
There are two main types of Bank Guarantee:
1. Financial Guarantee Financial Guarantee is issued in-lieu-of cash deposit that the principal may need to place with the beneficiary for an underlying transaction. If the principal fails to meet his financial obligation, the beneficiary may claim on the guarantee. Examples of Financial Guarantee are:Advance Payment Guarantee An Advance Payment Guarantee enables a buyer to recover an advance payment made under a contract or order if the supplier fails to fulfill his contractual obligations. Remisier Guarantee A Remisier Guarantee is issued to the Authority for remisier trading purposes.
2. Performance Guarantee Performance guarantee is issued to protect against the principal’s non-performance over his contractual obligations. Examples of Performance Guarantee are:
A Bid Bond is a bond that is required of a contractor submitting a bid for a project. If the contractor then refuses to undertake the contract after he has been awarded the contract, the bid bond assures that the developer can recover his liquidated damages between his bid and next higher bid. Bid Bond ensures that a contractor will make serious bids and live up to his obligations.
A Performance Guarantee is to guarantee against the failure of the principal to meet his obligations in a contract or completing a project. Performance Bonds are commonly used in the construction and development of real estate properties to protect the value of the work against unforeseen events such as the bankruptcy of the contractor.
A Warranty/Maintenance Bond is to protect against design defects or poor workmanship, and to guarantee that facility constructed would be regularly and adequately maintained throughout the warranty or maintenance period.
