A bank comfort letter is a document issued by the bank on its customer’s (buyer) behalf to a supplier, assuring the supplier of the buyer’s financial ability and legitimacy in maintaining a continuous business. It is important to note that a bank comfort letter does not confirm the payment, but guarantees the seller of buyer’s stability to fulfill its promise in conducting the business. Bank issue the bank comfort letter to the supplier as confirmation of the buyer’s ability and this is accompanied by a sales and purchase agreement or purchase order.

How A Bank Comfort Letter Works
The purpose of a bank comfort letter is to assure a third party to a seller generally that the borrower has access to substantial financial resources to complete the transaction, like the purchase of goods. The confirmation letter sometimes referred to as the letter of comfort is not a payment guarantee, but merely an assurance to pay the borrower’s financial resources.
The bank comfort letter usually requires the signature of the bank or financial institution representatives that are authorized to issue such correspondence.
Since a confirmation letter is issued in relation to a particular transaction, it is not transferable to a separate transaction or project. If the customer of the bank decides to enter into a different deal or purchase, the customer usually needs to get a new comfort letter.
For instance, a potential home buyer decides to buy a different home than the one specified in the bank comfort letter: A new bank comfort letter will be needed.
Regulations may vary from country to country as to whether and to what extent the confirmation letter should specify the specific purpose for which the loan or line of credit is being given to the borrower.
