eGuarantee@GoveGuarantee@Gov is an initiative to digitise the paper-form guarantees process to enable you, financial institutions (FIs) and Government agencies to reap time and cost savings.
Benefits of applying for an eGuarantee
- Swift: By purchasing an eGuarantee via eGuarantee@Gov, you can enjoy a faster lodgement process from 5 – 7 working days to within 1 working day (provided that all required information is correct).
- Seamless: The eGuarantee will be lodged digitally between FIs and government agencies via the Networked Trade Platform.
