Understanding Credit Insurance
Credit insurance provides your business with protection against the failure of a customer (‘the buyer’) to pay you for the products/services you have delivered. This might be because they have become insolvent or have simply failed to pay you within an agreed credit period.
Credit insurance does more than just ensure your invoices are paid. It can help your business succeed by providing the following benefits:
- Safer business growth
Credit insurance gives you the confidence to expand your sales to new and existing customers and markets. It also enables you to sell on open account terms, which can be a major competitive advantage, especially for exporters.
- Thorough customer insights
Our knowledge helps you pick the right customers and make the best decisions for your business. We tell you everything you need to know about your customers, your potential customers and your marketplace to grow with confidence. Our risk information database is a valuable support to your in-house credit management.
- Optimised risk management
With a credit insurance policy, you can better control and protect against bad-debt losses. You can minimize your risk when exploring and developing new markets. Credit insurance also gives you the reassurance that your invoices will be paid even if your customers default, which is critical to protecting your cash flows.
- Better borrowing and financing options
Your business can secure better borrowing terms with the security that credit insurance provides. In some cases, your bank or lender may actually require credit insurance in order to qualify for a loan.
