Key takeaways

  • Credit protection shields up to 90% of eligible debt from insolvency or extended non-payment, safeguarding your business's financial health.
  • It aids in maintaining stable cash flow and business growth by ensuring you're not adversely affected by customer defaults.
  • Credit protection allows businesses to plan and invest in operations, resources, and expansion with more certainty, despite awaiting customer payments.

What is credit protection?

Credit protection is a safeguard mechanism that protects businesses against the risk of non-payment by their customers.

In the context of invoice finance, credit protection ensures that the business is not left out of pocket if their customer defaults or becomes insolvent. This means that even if the end customer fails to pay the invoice, the business that sold the invoice will still receive the agreed-upon funds.

Put simply, credit protection is a safety net, providing businesses with added security and peace of mind when engaging in invoice finance transactions.

Why use credit protection? 

You’ve worked hard to build up a strong customer base, but sometimes for reasons out of your control some of these businesses will fail. In fact in the course of a year the average company will lose more than 3 of its active customers because of financial distress, insolvency, administration or receivership.

When this happens, it can have a major impact on your cash flow, and potentially your own success. With credit protection, up to 90% of your eligible debt is protected against insolvency or prolonged non-payment, minimising the impact on your business.

It provides you with the support and security needed to grow your business, safe in the knowledge you will not be left out of pocket should one of your customers fail to pay.
