Our trade credit services

Trade credit insurance is an option to cover your business against your customers insolvency and payment default.

Policies can be tailored to suit your business needs – to cover a single debtor or your entire debtor book.

Unsecured debtors generally make up to approx. 40% of the current assets on a typical balance sheet.

How well do you know the strength of your key customers?

Can they continue to settle their account on the unsecured credit terms agreed?

How would your business survive if one of your customers owing you $50,000 collapsed and was unable to pay?

A $50,000 bad debt at 5% net profit margin would require new business of $1million to return you to the pre loss position. Can this be achieved in the following 3 to 6 months?
