Trade Credit Insurance - benefits and how it works

What is trade credit insurance?

Trade credit insurance is a policy that can protect your business from bad debts.  It secures your accounts receivable and insures your business from unpaid invoices caused by customer bankruptcy, nonpayment, political risks and other circumstances agreed with your insurer. Trade credit insurance is also known as ‚Äòdebtor insurance', ‚Äòexport credit insurance' and ‚Äòaccounts receivable insurance'.

How does trade credit insurance work?

Trade credit insurance works by insuring you from your buyer on payment failure, which means that every invoice from that customer is covered for the insurance year. Trade credit insurance is used by businesses of all sizes to protect both domestic and international trade. Businesses also use credit insurance to help keep them financially secured and to confidently explore new markets as well as to attract new customers with suitable credit terms. There is no ‚Äòone size fits all' approach to trade credit insurance, as with all types of insurance.  The extent and value of your credit insurance will be stipulated by your needs.
