How does Trade Credit Insurance work?

If your business supplies goods or services to other companies on credit terms, Trade Credit Insurance can protect against your customers failing to repay you.  This can be as a result of their business becoming insolvent or sometimes it can happen through no fault of their own, such as political or economic problems.

As well as offering a safety net against the risk of non-payment, your Atradius Credit Insurance policy can also help your business grow by gaining a competitive advantage in your market through identifying opportunities as well as risks. 

That's because our team of financial underwriters around the world constantly analyse the credit ratings of around two hundred million businesses. Should your customers' financial circumstances change, we'll make you aware of this to enable you to take appropriate action. You may, for example wish to offer them more favourable credit terms if their credit ratings improve (or reduce credit terms if their credit ratings are not so good). 

This information about your customers buyer ratings is supplied automatically via our online portal which you will have access to as part of your insurance policy with Atradius. 

Credit Insurance can also help with your cash flow, as well as a range of benefits including:

  • increased access to finance, as we can provide your bank with the reassurances it needs when extending finance to you
  • a reduction in your bad debt provision and, in turn a healthier balance sheet
  • the confidence to seek out new markets and customers, and benefit from the growth this may bring
