Performance Bond

A bond (guarantee) provided by one party of a contract to protect the interests of another party, in the event of non performance.

The supplier of the goods or service is normally required to issue a PB for the benefit of the importer or receiver of the goods or service. The guarantee amount can vary from 2 % to 10 % (or more) of the contract amounts.

The receiver of the goods / service can claim against this PB if the supplier of the goods does not perform in accordance with the trade contract, undertakings, agreements or LC’s.


Bid Bond

When tendering on certain projects, suppliers of services or product are sometimes required to put up a guarantee that they can perform if called upon to do so or if they win the tender. If they do not perform when called upon to perform, then the Bid Bond is called up (paid).

Construction Guarantee
