What is bad debt protection?

Bad debt protection is a product that can be added to your invoice discounting or factoring facility that ensures that you still receive payment in the event that your customer can’t settle their invoices.

We credit check your new and existing customers, and offer up to 100% protection on customers who have been pre-approved by our expert team, so you can have peace of mind that customer insolvency won’t negatively impact the availability of funding.

How does bad debt protection work?

Should a customer insolvency arise, we will liaise with the designated insolvency practitioner on your behalf. Once we are in receipt of all supporting documentation, the formal write-off process may be completed within as little as two weeks.

We have an expert credit management team that will work with you to assess any potential risks from your existing or new customers, minimising your exposure to bad debts.
