Security in the midst of uncertainty
If you import or export goods to or from Ghana, you are legally required to pay customs duty immediately as the goods enter or leave the country. The Ghana Revenue Authority, acting on behalf of the Government of Ghana, will allow duty payments to be deferred if there is a guarantee in place from a reputable insurance company.
A Customs Bond from Provident is a guarantee against any loss of revenue arising from the failure, default or non-compliance by your company in terms of your obligations to Customs when it comes to export/import duties.
These are the types of customs bonds we offer:
A written guaranty from a third party guarantor (usually an insurance company) submitted to a principal (client or customer) by a contractor (bidder) with a bid.
A bid bond ensures that on acceptance or winning of a bid by the customer or contractor they will proceed with the contract and will furnish the obligee with a performance bond. In the absence of this the guarantor will pay the customer the difference between the contractor's bid and the next highest bid.
This guarantee is given out to contractors only when the principal wishes to advance an amount of money to the contractor to mobilize resources to work on the project.
The bond is an undertaking to the owner of the project to refund monies advanced to the contractor to mobilize resources to work on the project should the contractor after collecting the mobilization fund default in the performance of the project.
If however the contractor utilizes the money in the performance of the project successfully then the bond becomes void.
A written guaranty from a third party guarantor (usually an insurance company) submitted to a principal (client or customer) by a contractor on winning the bid. A performance bond ensures payment of a sum (not exceeding a stated maximum) of money in case the contractor fails in the full performance of the contract. Performance bonds usually cover 100 percent of the contract price and replace the bid bonds on award of the contract.
