    Stand By

    You can request that your suppliers issue any guarantee in your favour that will ensure return to you of any cash advances you may have been required to pay, and you can also demand their return in the event of a contractual breach.

  • What is the duration of a guarantee?

    The expiry date of a guarantee is fixed according to the terms of the underlying guarantee and therefore there are no predefined terms. Many guarantees even have an indefinite maturity.

  • What interest is paid on a guarantee?

    No interest is paid on a Guarantee, but rather risk fees and issuing expenses, if it is issued via SWIFT.

    The standard in terms of the risk fee charging methodology is for quarterly settlements paid in advance.

  • What are international guarantees?

    The main international guarantees are those of tender, early payment, performance, guarantee and retention in the field of "technical" guarantees and payment guarantees and financial guarantees in the "financial" field.
