Overview

In many instances of international commerce, credit may be offered to a buyer by a vendor in lieu of cash-on-delivery or pre-payment for the goods or services being provided. This allows the buyer some time to generate the required funds to pay for the goods or services they are purchasing, and can actually mean a higher profit for the vendor under some situations. However, this scenario does mean that the vendor will be taking the risk of having the buyer renege on the agreed payment for the products or services in question.

Trade Credit Insurance, otherwise known as Business Credit Insurance, Export Credit Insurance, or simply Credit Insurance, is a form of Hong Kong Business Insurance plan which has been designed to protect companies against financial losses stemming from non-payment with regards to a buyer of the company’s products or services.

CCW Global can offer a number of Trade Credit Insurance options to businesses in Hong Kong, ensuring that your company is protected in the event that a buyer does not fulfil their obligation to pay for the goods and services provided by the organization.
