eGuarantee@Gov

eGuarantee@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. 
  • Savings: You will enjoy cost savings as there is no longer a need to collect the paper guarantees from FIs and submit a copy to AVS.
