Product description

Advance payment guarantee (guarantee for advance repayment) is a bank guarantee by which a guarantor (i.e. CKB) undertakes to pay to the guarantee beneficiary (buyer) a certain amount of money (advance payment made), if the guarantee principal (seller) fails to meet contractual obligations.


Advance payment guarantee is generally used in connection to large export/import deals, where suppliers of equipment or other goods require buyers to pay a certain amount as advance payment. Considering the fact that, in general, there is a misbalance between the advance payment and the amount that is to be paid for the goods purchased, a buyer secures itself by this guarantee in terms of establishing the disrupted balance between the amount paid and still to become due. Also, in case the seller fails to deliver the goods for which the advance payment was made, this guarantee is the security for the buyer to recover the payment made.


The product is intended for all legal entities and primarily those participating in large export/import deals.

For this guarantee, the Bank will charge its clients a minimum fee for issuing a guarantee in the amount of EUR 50, or 0,4%-1,5% quarterly of the approved guarantee amount.
