Generelt kan man si at Kredittforsikring gir en leverandør av varer og tjenester en omfattende beskyttelse mot kundetap ved salg til så vel norske som utenlandske kunder. Det er ikke uvanlig at den største delen av en bedrifts eiendeler består av kundefordringer. Svært ofte har norske bedrifter utestående fordringer som langt overstiger egenkapitalen, og selv små betalingsforsinkelser fra kjøper kan få alvorlige følger for likviditeten. Den kanskje vanligste årsaken til at en bedrift kommer i økonomiske problemer og, i verste fall, går konkurs, er jo nettopp betalingsforsinkelser og tap på kundefordringer. Aktørene i kredittforsikringsbransjen dekker ditt selskap mot den risiko som alltid, i større eller mindre grad, eksisterer når man selger varer og tjenester, det være seg på hjemmemarkedet eller i resten av verden.
