Guarantees

Reduce the risk of late performance of contractual obligations within the agreed deadlines. Our team of experienced colleagues will provide you with the most professional expertise regarding the following types of guarantees: tender guarantees, performance guarantees, advance payment guarantees, customs guarantees, payment guarantees and money retention guarantees.

Tender (bid) guarantee: is a bank guarantee by which the guarantor (CKB) undertakes to pay to a beneficiary (contracting authority) certain amount of money if a tender participant (guarantee principal) revokes its bid during the bidding process or refuses to conclude contract in accordance with conditions of the accepted tender (bid). For this guarantee, the Bank will charge its clients a minimum fee for issuing a guarantee in the amount of EUR 50, or 1,0% annually.

Performance guarantee: can be used for almost all types of sales agreements or commercial service agreements. However, it is most widely used in agreements on delivery of equipment on credit or in building contracts. For this guarantee, the Bank will charge its clients a minimum fee for issuing a guarantee in the amount of EUR 50, or 2,00% - 3,00% annually of the approved guarantee amount.

Defects liability guarantee: represents a bank guarantee by which the guarantor (CKB) undertakes to pay a certain amount of money at the request of the beneficiary if the principal fails to fulfil the obligations from the underlying contract.

Advance payment guarantee: is a bank guarantee by which the guarantor (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. It 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. The product is intended for all legal entities, primarily those engaged in large export/import transactions. For this guarantee, the Bank will charge its clients a minimum fee for issuing a guarantee in the amount of EUR 50, or 2,00% - 3,00% annually of the approved guarantee amount. In special cases, the Bank management may apply a negotiated fee for issuing a guarantee.

Customs guarantee: With the customs guarantee, CKB guarantees to the Montenegrin Customs Administration for regular settlement of obligations related to excise duties, taxes, customs debt and other levies owed by the client, depending on the customs process. These guarantees can also be used as security for the payment of some services – goods warehousing, goods transit, active and passive improvement of goods. For this guarantee, the Bank will charge its clients a minimum fee for issuing a guarantee in the amount of EUR 50, or 2,00% - 3,00% annually of the approved guarantee amount. In special cases, the Bank management may apply a negotiated fee for issuing a guarantee.

Payment guarantee: represents a bank guarantee by which the Bank guarantees for regular settlement of obligations to suppliers within the guarantee period subject to certain conditions.

For this guarantee, the Bank will charge its clients a minimum fee for issuing a guarantee in the amount of EUR 50, or 2,00% - 3,00% annually of the approved guarantee amount. In special cases, the Bank management may apply a negotiated fee for issuing a guarantee.
