Trade credit insurance protects you against the risk of non-payment of your business customers in Belgium and abroad. You are informed in real time of the financial situation of your customers. In case of non-payment, you benefit from targeted recovery actions and will be
compensated within the conditions of your policy. Even if your claim is not recovered, you benefit compensation, also within the conditions of your policy.

The premium is calculated according to the turnover that you realize with private companies and according to the way you trade. The
premium is based on a percentage of your sales, generally below 1%. This amount varies according to the sector of activity or the type of cover you choose.

Remember that premiums go up or down from year to year. They are affected by the losses you have experienced in the past, the customers you deal with and the sector you work in. Covering political risk as well as trade risk costs more. We calculate the best price for your situation so that these factors and your needs are taken into account.

Just a few instances of failure to pay can compromise your cash flow and have a considerable impact on the health of your business.

For example, if you have a 5% profit margin and you suffer a € 100,000 debt, you will need to win sales of € 2 million to make up for the lost profits.   

In addition, your financial position can be weakened by bad debts through different potential case scenarios.. For example, in the case your cash flow might be affected, you will have less capacity for investment. Banks and financial providers  could charge you higher interest. The morale of your employees may be affected if they become worried about their future in the business.

Consider these effects and what they might cost when you think about the value you will gain from trade credit insurance.
