Battling the twin threats of the global pandemic and Britain's exit from the EU brings challenges and increased risk for many businesses, not least when it comes to insolvencies.
The government's strategy for keeping businesses out of insolvency appears to have had a positive impact for many in the short-term. However, the months ahead remain uncertain and your customers’ ability to pay their suppliers could be impacted.
Underlying all this is the need to keep businesses operating – profitably if possible – and to retain jobs. When times are hard, offering extended credit trade terms is an attractive option to secure work and grow your business; however, this also brings increased risk to your liquidity and cashflow.
Your business is your livelihood, so what would happen if you deliver a significant job for a customer who was then unable to pay your invoice? The financial consequences could be devastating.
A simple solution is to protect single invoices.
We have worked with Nimbla to offer you credit insurance on a single invoice basis.
This flexible and affordable invoice insurance offers cover against unpaid invoices, so you can expand your business knowing that you're protected if a customer becomes insolvent. Prices start from abasis from as little as £5.60*.
How trade credit can help:
- Expand your business by offering credit terms to new buyers, knowing that you're protected if things don't go to plan.
- Have peace of mind when using invoice funding, knowing that your finance on an invoice is secure if it isn't paid.
- Protect your bottom line by insuring transactions with existing customers, knowing that you will get paid in uncertain times.
Invoice insurance is useful for small and medium-sized businesses where goods or services are supplied on trade credit terms.
Unlike traditional credit insurance, Nimbla doesn't require you to insure your entire turnover. Instead, Nimbla allows you to decide which individual invoices (up to £100,000) you want to insure. So during these challenging times, don't let the risk of client insolvency stop you from expanding your business.
