Express BG is an online platform for customers to apply for BGs on an ad hoc basis against cash margin without the need for UOB internet banking subscription (i.e. BIB Plus) or BG facilities. Customers must, however, have a UOB current account to facilitate the debit of the margin amount.

Simple, fast and convenient, there is no need to fill in a paper form. Instead, customers will fill in the online application.

Express BG is available to Business Banking customers who are seeking for a transactional BG application. Customers must maintain CASA with UOB.

The BG commission is 1.5% p.a. subject to a minimum of S$200. This is regardless of the type (i.e. whether financial or performance BG) of guarantee required.

As soon as 3 working days if application is in order, from the point where customer submits the necessary documents via email/fax.

No limit on either, but both subject to Bank’s approval.

Yes. Typically, BGs are issued for beneficiaries such as Ministry of Manpower, The Comptroller of Goods and Services Tax, Director General of Customs, Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore, Housing and Development Board, etc.

The BG will be issued against 100% cash margin which will be debited from the CASA number provided by customers.

No. This is to ensure fast and timely issuances. Please click contact us for further assistance.

* If you have any existing credit facilities with us, please contact your Relationship Manager, or apply for BG online via BIBPlus.
