Coronavirus help and support for our Towergate Insurance Brokers customers

Credit Insurance

Credit Insurance

As the Towergate Group includes both insurance broking arms and specialist underwriting agencies, we are ideally qualified to advise you and arrange Credit Insurance that suits your business needs.

We appreciate that credit is vital to trade for small and medium sized businesses but increasingly difficult to secure in tough economic conditions. So, our approach is to give you access to a broad range of insurance products at a time when many of our competitors are withdrawing from supporting this aspect of the market.

Suffering a bad debt can cause a business to fail, so Credit Insurance is well worth considering if you sell a product or service to businesses on credit terms. For instance, if your profit margin is 5% and you suffer a £25,000 bad debt, you will need to increase sales by £500,000 just to recoup the lost profit from that bad debt.

Causes of loss that Credit Insurance can protect you against include:

  • Customer Insolvency – Administration, receivership, bankruptcy and liquidation.
  • Protracted Default – Client non-payment of your invoices after a specified period due to lack of funds and where the debt is not disputed.
  • Political Risk – Losses arising from government intervention e.g. currency inconvertibility, cancellation of export or import licences, war and natural disaster.

The specialists at Towergate can assist with many aspects of credit management and risk analysis.
