On this page we will elaborate further on the costs of a credit insurance. 

Multiple determinative factors

Although we attempt to be as transparent as possible, is is hard to provide the specific costs for your company or organization. The precise costs are dependent of the next factors;

  • the turnover of your organization
  • the industry in which you operate
  •  the kind of policy (kind of credit insurance)
  •  the payment terms and delivery time
  • the additional risks
  •  the debtor balance

These are the most important factors. However, there are more factors determinative for the premium level. The premium level is normally between 0.075% and 0.35%

Credit insurance costs compared

Many companies believe the costs for a credit insurance are too high and, that in most cases, it will cost more than it will make. However, on the basis of statistics and researches, it can be proven that debtor losses are usually higher. Research shows that 2.2% of the invoices are irrecoverable. Moreover, the percentage for irrecoverable invoices is higher in other European countries. This holds that, when only looking at the numbers, the premium costs of a credit insurance are lower than the amount of irrecoverable invoices. 

Multiple non-measurable benefits

Next to the coverage against no-payment, multiple benefits of a credit insurance are applicable for your organization. For one, you can rely on the knowledge and expertise of the credit insurer. Moreover, you can make use of the creditworthiness check to gain competitive advantages and you will more easily receive credit from banks as you have limited your risks. When you weigh in these benefits, a credit insurance is, just like any other investment, a chance and not just an expense.


Below, an example of a company that did not take out a credit insurance is displayed. 

The company had build a fruitful relationship over the years with one of its clients.
The client was suddenly declared bankrupt without any signs. The outstanding invoice of €35.631,- remained unpaid due to insolvency. 
The company had a profit margin of 20%. This means that, with a profit margin of 20%, the company had to achieve €178.155,- of additional revenue to be able to cover the losses. A credit insurance would have cost only a fraction of the revenue.
