An Advance Payment Guarantee is a financial guarantee issued by a bank or financial institution on behalf of a seller (applicant) to assure a buyer (beneficiary) that an advance payment made by the buyer will be refunded in the event the seller fails to meet their contractual obligations.

APGs are used in international trade and business transactions to build trust between the buyer and seller. They provide the buyer with confidence that their advance payment is secure, reducing the risk of non-performance by the seller.

When a buyer makes an advance payment to a seller, the seller provides an APG issued by a bank to the buyer. If the seller fails to meet their obligations, the buyer can present the APG to the bank to recover the advance payment.

  • Applicant: The seller who requests the APG to provide assurance to the buyer.
  • Beneficiary: The buyer who receives the APG to ensure the safety of their advance payment.
  • Issuing Bank: The bank that issues the APG on behalf of the seller.
  • Confirming Bank (optional): A bank that adds its confirmation to the APG to enhance the beneficiary’s confidence.

APGs are typically non-transferable, meaning they can only be used by the beneficiary (the original buyer) and are not transferable to third parties. The terms and conditions should be clearly defined in the APG.
