Thursday, June 27th, 2019

Bad debt protection insures your ledger in the event of a customer’s insolvency or protracted non payment. As a business you protect your assets; offices, plant and machinery, computers, or company vehicles. However, your biggest asset, your debtor book, is unprotected.

Not all finance companies provide bad debt protection in the same way therefore it is important that an insurance product is best suited to your needs

There are three main types of bad debt protection products. As to which one is the most suitable will depend on factors such as turnover and quality of your customers

Stand Alone.  

Bad Debt Protection is a way of insuring your ledger against insolvency. Traditionally this is bolted on to a factoring or invoice finance facility however a standalone facility provided by a specialist insurance provider can be cheaper and provide superior cover. Clients can also choose which debtors they want to insure, and only pay the cost of insurance as and when they fund invoices against that debtor.   Insurance can be provided for international trade as well as domestic

Non-Recourse Factoring

Non Recourse factoring provides businesses with a cash flow finance solution along with the added value of bad debt protection. Factoring provides an immediate injection of cash into the business and will provide a source of funding that will grow with your business. Bad debt protection provides peace of mind that you will get paid in the event of a customers’ insolvency / inability to pay. Factoring also can save valuable management time by chasing and collecting outstanding invoices on your behalf.

Non-Recourse Invoice Finance
