Bad debt insurance protects your business from unpaid invoices and customer default. Credit insurance prevents disruption to cash flow.

Late Payment

Late payments occur when a customer fails to pay on as per the agreed time period. Late payments eventually can lead to
non-payments, having a severe impact on business.
