What is Credit Insurance?

Credit insurance gives business owners peace of mind to grow their business whilst removing the risk of non-payment through insolvency. An insurer will provide limits for all customers and if that customer falls into liquidation, the outstanding invoices to that customer are covered through the insurance.
