Credit insurance removes the credit risk from your balance sheet, which improves your margin and bolsters your P&L.
As potential losses are covered, you can reallocate excess bad debt provision as working capital.
Having credit insurance can increase your credit rating giving access to improved and more economical levels of finance.
You can use the debtor asset on your balance sheet to free up working capital by unitising invoice discounting or factoring.
Credit insurance can act as a cost-effective replacement for expensive bank guarantees and letters of credit.
As your shipments are covered, the fear of “not getting paid” is removed meaning you can offer extended payment terms to customers, giving you a competitive edge in your market.
