A substantial customer default could severely impact your cash flow, potentially even triggering insolvency. If a customer cannot pay you, we will resolve your insurance claim in a few simple steps. We aim to pay all valid claims within 30 days of receiving all required documents from you.

How do I make a claim?


Notify us

When a customer becomes insolvent, you will receive a confirmatory letter from the administrators, which you need to send to us.


Send documents

Once you’ve heard from the administrators, send us your original invoice, policy details, and the insolvency letter.


Get paid

We check all your documents and keep in touch with you. When everything is approved, we aim to pay you within 30 days.
