Nimbla & Swoop

Swoop has partnered with Nimbla to provide you with credit insurance on a per-invoice basis from just £5.60* per policy, making it more affordable and easier than traditional credit insurance. You're in good hands with Nimbla’s expertise, support and technology at your disposal.

What’s invoice insurance?

Invoice insurance from Nimbla provides businesses like yours with peace of mind, knowing that if one of your buyers becomes insolvent while owing you money, you still get paid. Unlike traditional credit insurance, Nimbla doesn’t require you to insure your entire turnover for thousands of pounds. Instead, Nimbla allows you to insure individual invoices. If your buyer becomes insolvent, you can file a claim and Nimbla will pay out 90%* of the invoice value.

What are the benefits of invoice insurance?

Grow your business by offering credit terms to new buyers, knowing that you're protected if things don’t go to plan. It could be easier to win new business when you don't have to ask for payment upfront if your customer wants to pay on invoice.

Get peace of mind when using invoice funding, knowing that your loan is secure if the invoice isn't paid. When using invoice factoring or invoice discounting, your invoices are the collateral and you might want to protect them against non-payment to ensure you will be paid.

Protect your bottom line by insuring transactions with existing customers, knowing that you will get paid in uncertain times. Although you might know your customers, their trading conditions can deteriorate quickly and that could seriously harm your business.

Who’s invoice insurance for?

Invoice insurance is perfect for small and medium-sized businesses with invoices of up to £500,000 (subject to your customer's risk profile). It’s useful for companies that operate in sectors such as manufacturing, wholesale, food production, recruitment, logistics and printing. However, we cover every sector. You can use invoice insurance to win new business by offering credit terms to customers, knowing you're protected when the invoice goes unpaid if they become insolvent.
