    WHAT IS TRADE CREDIT INSURANCE?

    Trade Credit Insurance is a financial risk management tool designed to safeguard traders, businesses, manufacturers, and service providers against losses often incurred due to non-payment or extremely delayed payment.

    Suppose a buyer is unable to pay due to various reasons, mostly due to insolvency or bankruptcy. In that case, the insured can claim from their trade credit insurance policy for payment

    For businesses offering credit to their buyers trade credit insurance can provide protection against non-payment, insolvency, and unwarranted losses. It can also potentially help with business expansion, increasing profitability and strengthen business stability.

      HOW CAN IT HELP YOUR BUSINESS?

      Trade Credit insurance offers a wide range of benefits to the businesses, including –

      CREDIT INSURANCE Offers a BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH CUSTOMERS

      Having trade credit insurance would allow you to draw more customer-friendly agreements, improving overall relationships with your customers.

      INCREASED SALES

      Businesses with trade credit insurance can help increase sales considerably by offering customers better and more favourable credit terms, eliminating the need for expensive letters of Credit.

      PROTECTION AGAINST INSOLVENCY/BANKRUPTCY

      When sales are made on credit, covered by trade credit insurance, the organisations can protect themselves from the unforeseen risk of customers’ defaults, bankruptcy/Business Rescue, and insolvency.

      COLLECTION SERVICES

      When the organisations are covered with trade credit insurance, they get access to cost-effective and reputed collection services.

      FACILITATE BANK FINANCING & BETTER INTEREST RATES

      When the accounts receivables of the organisations are insured, the banks offer loans at more favourable terms and a lower rate of interest can be negotiated.

      LOWER CONCENTRATION RISK

      Many businesses and organisations depend on a select few customers for a healthy bottom-line. Having trade credit insurance would lower the dependency on these customers and offer considerable protection if these customers default.

      BOOSTS CONFIDENCE

      When businesses are protected with trade credit insurance, it helps them diversify with ease and expand beyond traditional markets. It is a must for businesses aiming to grow and expand.

      EARLY WARNING

      Having trade credit insurance would help businesses gain credit information about companies with high-risk profiles or poor credit. It warns companies of such exposure so that business owners can avoid unnecessary risk.

      IMPROVED PAYMENT BEHAVIOUR

      When businesses are insured with trade credit insurance, the customers typically pay faster than traditionally, improving organisations’ cash flow and liquidity.
