Guarantees are used by the Government:
As security deposits and tender deposits for procurement, revenue and land sales contracts; and
For licensing obligations/ regulatory requirements, e.g. employment agency licensing, dog breed licensing, GST registration.

You can enjoy a faster lodgement process. Typically, it takes you up to 5-7 days from application to delivery of the guarantee to the Agency. With eGuarantee@Gov, the application and issuance process can be completed within a day. You can also enjoy cost savings as there is no longer a need to collect the paper guarantee from the bank or insurance company and deliver them to the Agency.
