Bad Debt Protection Insurance: Protect your cash flow and give yourself peace of mind
You’ve worked hard to build up a strong customer base, but sometimes for reasons out of your control some of these businesses will fail.
With Bad Debt Protection up to 90% of this loss is covered, minus the excess, minimising the impact of a failed customer on your business. It provides you with the peace of mind and security needed to grow your business, safe in the knowledge you will not be left out of pocket should one of your new customers not be a success.
Why you may need Bad Debt Protection Insurance
Over the the course of a year the average company will lose more than 3 of its active customers because of financial distress, insolvency, administration or receivership.
- 76% of the time if one of your customers goes into liquidation you will get nothing back
- 7.5p in the £1 is the average amount recovered without Bad Debt Protection
- A £1.5m turnover business earning a 5% margin would have to increase its turnover by 30% to recoup a bad debt of as little as £22,500
