Bank guarantee: cover your payments or your services

A bank guarantee is the irrevocable commitment by a bank, at the first request of the beneficiary, to pay a sum of money in the event that a third party fails to fulfil its obligation to provide a service or pay. The guarantee is the instrument to use, especially in the context of international commercial relations.


A surety is a commitment for a defined amount by which the bank undertakes in favour of the creditor to guarantee payment of the debt contracted by the debtor subject to a number of specific provisions.
