Invoice Discounting and bad debt protection

It is commonly thought that bad debt protection or credit insurance can only be provided by the the incumbent invoice discounting or factoring company. It is a little known fact that credit insurance can be provided by an independent third party.

An independent can often provided greater levels of cover for the same customers , at a lower cost and with more protection. As far as we are aware there is only one or two high street finance companies that provide bad debt protection in the event of a protracted claim.
