The best applications of an escrow account

An escrow account is a temporary account held by a third party - a trustee - during the process of a purchase transaction between two parties. Since it is a temporary account, it only works until the terms agreed between the two parties - usually the buy er and seller - have been settled and the transaction can be completed.

Escrow accounts are also becoming increasingly popular in the business world. Opening such an account during a business transaction can replace a letter of credit. In this case, the bank or other trustee will receive money from the buyer and notify the other party that the payment has been made. The seller company can now be confident that it will receive the funds once it has complied with its legal obligations and therefore sends the goods to the buyer. When the buying company receives the goods and is satisfied with the quality of the products, it sends a confirmation to the bank with instructions to release the money.


Another use of a corporate escrow account is to transfer company shares to employees as part of their compensation package. In this way, the employees become shareholders of the company, but have limited use or sale of the shares during the escrow period. The rationale for such a policy is to protect the market price of the company's shares and to discourage employees from leaving the company at least until the trust period expires.


Opening an escrow account can remove most of the uncertainties related to the safe and honest delivery of funds or other assets under a sales contract. For example, if a buyer wants to tour the property they are interested in or do some other due diligence, an escrow account can be used to confirm that the buyer has enough funds to actually complete the transaction. If the buyer is satisfied with the property, he instructs the third party to release the funds from the escrow account. This way, the buyer can be assured that the money will be safe until the deal is closed, and the seller can be assured that the buyer has sufficient funds and is genuinely interested in the property.


Benefits of Using an Escrow Account

An escrow account is beneficial to both parties to the transaction. As discussed above, the involvement of a third party holding the money temporarily while some aspects of the agreement are not being met can make the real estate or business transaction easier, especially if one or both parties do not trust the other.


Still, being able to trust the escrow agent is critical for both buyers and sellers as they will be the only one with access to the funds for a period of time. Hence, it is very important to choose a trustworthy agent with a good reputation.
