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 favor of the creditor to guarantee payment of the debt contracted by the debtor subject to a number of specific provisions.


For a guarantee or a surety to be issued, the principal must at least have or create a relationship with the Banque Agricole S.A (BA).
