What is a Surety Bond?
A surety bond is a legally binding document that guarantees terms of a contract will be fulfilled.
When a business or individual buys a surety bond, what they’re essentially saying is “I promise to hold up my end of the deal.” This party will incur penalties if it fails to uphold terms of the contract.
In essence, surety bonds are a useful way to provide accountability and transparency when reaching a formal agreement. These bonds create a legally binding contract among three parties:
Obligee: Party requesting the bond
Principal: Party obligated to buy the bond
Surety: Insurance company with financial backing to ensure claims will be paid if the principal does not fulfill the contract’s terms
Surety Bonds are a mix of insurance and credit. They are a form of insurance for the obligee as they shield the party from damages if the contract is breached by the principal. Surety bonds function as a credit for the principal because claims must be repaid to the surety by the principal. This ensures that the company buying the bond will honor the contract or else face financial penalties if claims arise.
Though surety bonds are made to protect the obligee, they can make the principal more competitive because they express trustworthiness. As a business owner, you want to make sure you follow through on a deal. Bonding proves that you’re a credible company that stands by its word. That’s absolutely crucial when potential customers are deciding which companies to do business with.
