Bank Guarantee assistance in Dubai, UAE

A bank guarantee is a guarantee given by a bank or financial institution to a creditor on behalf of a borrower. This is a three-party agreement between the bank, the borrower, and the lender. When a lender makes a loan or sells a product to a borrower, the bank or financial institution guarantees that if the borrower fails to pay the bill, the lender will bear the loss.    

What exactly is a bank guarantee?

When two parties agree to conduct a trade transaction, a bank guarantee comes into play. A bank guarantee is a promise made by the bank to the beneficiary to pay a sum of money if the other party fails to meet the contractual obligations. A bank guarantee protects a trader from any loss or damage caused by one of the agreement’s parties failing to perform. If one of the parties breaches the contract, the other party may invoke the bank guarantee by filing a claim and receiving the guaranteed money. In this manner, the buyer or seller can ensure that the trade transaction is completed even if one of the parties fails to meet the contractual commitments.
