Trade Credit Insurance
What is trade credit insurance?
You wouldn’t hesitate to insure your business property and stock. But have you considered what would happen to your business if one or more of your key customers default on their payments?
In 2016, £210 million of claims were paid to businesses due to non-payment – that’s the equivalent of £4 million a week.1
- Protect your business
Bad debts can put your financial future at risk. Trade credit insurance provides assurance that lack of payment from a large customer won’t mean disaster for you.
- Rate your customers for credit
The insurer will assess the creditworthiness of your customers and set each of them a specific credit limit, which is monitored regularly.
- Save time
We research the right solutions for your requirements, saving you time and effort to concentrate on what you do best – running your business.

- Avoid losses in the first place and help your business grow safely with additional support and knowledge.
- Secure a better financial position with financial institutes than may have been the case.
- Secure expert business and give you the confidence to explore new markets.
- Offer more competitive terms to your customers.
- Reduce your bad debt reserve, freeing up capital to use elsewhere in the business
