By protecting your own company's interests with a comprehensive credit insurance policy, you are guaranteeing the ability of your business to continue high levels of production, sales and profitability despite your customers' difficulties.
When you purchase global credit insurance for your business, you are protecting both your domestic and international receivables from risks of non-payment. Of course, you want to offer your clients competitive-edge credit arrangements and terms. However, if even a few of your regular customers fail to meet their payment obligations, you may need additional funding to keep your business in good standing and full operation. With the instability of today's global economies, customers can suffer financial cutbacks or purchasing slowdowns. Some may file for bankruptcy. In addition, international clients may have problems due to currency devaluations or changing political situations.
What common risks are covered by credit insurance on international receivables?
Frequently occurring risks involving international receivables are insolvencies such as bankruptcy and receivership as well as cash flow difficulties that often lead to protracted defaults. Balance sheet problems along with fluctuations in global economies, market demand and worldwide currencies can all contribute to risk factors. Wars and natural disasters can also have strong effects on overall risk levels concerning international receivables.
Additional political risks may include work stoppages and riots, countrywide revolutions, expropriations, embargoes and trade sanctions. Government-controlled regulatory changes involving importing and exporting of goods and services may also pose risks. For security from these and other serious situations and occurrences often detrimental to global sales and export or import of goods, your company should definitely have the ongoing protection of modern credit insurance. Only with the security of such insurance coverage can you be assured of continuous and strong business operations, well protected from threats of damaging risks.
