Operating credit insurance
For small amounts, the company has an automatic guarantee but with a low percentage of cover.
For those amounts that are important to cover, the insured requests a guarantee on a buyer and insurer tells him back the amount he is willing to cover.
This prevention is essential in order not to run unnecessary risks, and the seller is a good indicator for the exporter of the financial health of his client.
During the contract, you need to set credit limits for all your new customers.
When there’s a serious delay in payment, you must notify the insurance company.
If the debt is non-collectable, your claim is processed without delay to minimize impact on your cashflow.
