What to know about credit insurance coverage
Timing is everything. As a business owner or leader, you know this. That is to say, getting things perfectly aligned is essential to your bottom line. How you go about this is unique to the industry that you operate in. For instance, a retailer ensuring products are stocked is working to meet consumer demand. Meanwhile, a manufacturer is making certain that raw materials are available just in time for production. Likewise, a car dealership is focussing on having the right amount of stock in the showroom as well as on order.
Above all, business owners are always playing a delicate juggling act. They are ensuring supply is always meeting demand and corporate balance sheets are well…balanced. This is why failing to pay an invoice or a loan may quickly put your bottom line out of balance.
Thankfully, there’s an insurance product that can help with managing this everyday risk. BDC defines this as, “Credit insurance guarantees a lender will be repaid if a borrower is unable to pay his or her debt due to, for example, death or disability. Although credit insurance is solely for the benefit of the lender, it is purchased and paid for by the borrower. Business owners may be required to purchase credit insurance as a condition of borrowing the money.”1 Every business takes on risk. Credit insurance coverage is an important product that can help you safeguard your bottom line. Below, you can find some important insights about business credit insurance coverage.
