Bad Debt Protection

Financial protection against customer collapse

Is bad debt protection right for your business?

If you have concerns about payment from certain customers, or you bring in new customers, bad debt protection can cover up to 90% of any outstanding invoices.

This means you can focus on growing the business without worrying about customer failure. You pick and choose which customers are covered, so you don’t have to pay to protect reliable businesses.
