What Is trade credit insurance?
In simple terms, trade credit insurance protects your business against bad debts.
Whether your customer becomes insolvent or is simply unable to pay you, trade credit insurance protects your business by insuring it against the loss you suffer as a result.
You may know and manage your own customers very well, but it’s not just your own customers that represent a risk to your business. Your customers are also vulnerable to bad debts and non-payment, and the domino effect of company failure can affect you without warning, maybe even when your customer is not overdue paying you.
