Protect a large and vital business asset. This policy pays you if a customer defaults on payment. In this way it ensures a steady cash flow and mitigates an important business risk.
Trade credit insurance covers default for several reasons ranging from political situations, currency demonetization, license cancellation or exchange rates fluctuations. Defaults by public sector units can also be insured.
Trade Credit Insurance protects defaults even if your customer goes bankrupt. The reason for bankruptcy is not relevant. This is particularly relevant for a fragmented customer base that is exposed to economic cycles.
By taking trade credit insurance policy, you will cover all the risk of default by your customers. This will ultimately keep your bad debt level low, which further helps grow the business. Remain focus on business’s core activities and don’t worry about payment defaults.
If you leave out important information in your proposal it can result in a claim rejection. Important information could be the fact that you have a history of payment defaults, a debtor has threatened non-payment or that you have debtors that are not declared in the proposal.
A common reason for claim rejection is late filing of a claim after the maximum reporting time provided for in the insurance contract. The reason for claim rejection in cases of late filing is that late filing significantly reduces the insurer’s ability to recover the funds from your creditor. Insurers price trade credit with the expectation that they will use legal and other recourse to recover at least a part of the default payment.
Many claim gets rejected because they lie outside the policy terms. Terms include the definition of goods, territory and payment conditions. Certain kinds of debtors such as government departments may be excluded in the insurance.
Cover can be customized to include only big buyers who can create a potential risk. Add ons can include insolvency, protracted default and political risks.
Typical exclusions are: Non-payment arising due to cross-country trade disputes, sales to an associate company, sales contracts where payment should be received in advance, sales under irrevocable and confirmed Letter of Credit, and recovery losses due to foreign currency fluctuations.
