Protecting your largest assets.

Credit Services

Trade credit insurance protects your debtor’s ledger, one of the largest assets your business can carry.

Even the most rigorous and disciplined credit management cannot prevent bad debts, any business with these exposures should ensure they are protected with trade credit insurance. Self-insurance or a bad debt reserve does not replace monies lost, whereas trade credit insurance puts cash back in your hands.

Risk management in credit is a vital tool used to protect the financial health of your business.

Our credit risk management service is proactive and designed to grow your company’s sales while increasing accountability for cash flow and profitability. In other words, we aim to balance our client’s drive to increase sales with the capability to collect money owed.

Benefits

Our credit risk management allows you to relax in confidence for the following reasons:

  1. Deal with the right entity

    Most debtors’ ledgers have an identity error rate of around 10%. Dealing with the correct legal entity ensures that you have a contract to pursue and that you will rank for dividend in the event of insolvency. We can review your ledger so that you always know who you are dealing with.

  2. Timely advice on changes

    We can provide you with early warning signs on selected debtors. You will be alerted to changes or adverse events on your debtors as soon as we are aware of the facts. Wouldn’t it be valuable to know if there was a change in your debtors’ credit profile or if they have overdue debts elsewhere?

  3. Reliable credit limits

    If you have already set credit limits for your customers, on what basis are these limits set and how often are they reviewed? Our experienced analysts draw on an extensive range of data and will provide you with thorough advice on your credit limits.

  4. Customer profiles

    Our reports are not “off the shelf” information, instead we offer personalised, current and accurate mercantile reports. Our clients also gain free unlimited access to NCINet and over 600,000 debtors.

  5. Practical advice

    We can provide you with advice on issues such as effective retention of title, directors guarantees and terms of sales. We can even audit your credit management procedures manual or provide relevant training and consultation.
