The reason for the GLOBAL GUARANTEE ON COMMERCIAL CREDIT is constituted by the compulsory payment by the buyer to the seller of the price contractually agreed for the sale of goods or provision of services; therefore it is an obligation exclusively of "giving".
In this case, the function of the guarantee is to be indemnified for the loss suffered by the creditor (the supplying company) due to the failure of another party (the purchasing company) to meet its payment obligation for the goods purchased or services received.
Therefore, the guarantee guarantees the beneficiary (the supplying company), in the established percentage of coverage and within the credit limits agreed for each purchaser, indemnification for losses incurred due to the failure to collect, as a result of the insolvency of a purchaser, receivables arising from the supply of goods and services.
The advantages of the global guarantee on commercial credit are:
once 180 days have elapsed from the date of notification of a purchaser's default, there is "presumed insolvency" with the liquidation of indemnification by the Company.
Therefore, the global guarantee allows the seller to obtain a qualified selection of customers and certain collection times even for outstanding receivables.
The costs of the "global guarantee" are established by evaluating multiple factors: size of the seller, product sector, risk splitting, exclusivity schemes, seniority and solvency of customers.
