A Discretionary Trading Limit is a pre-approved limit that is provided to you by your insurer at the start of the policy. It will allow you to trade with smaller customers without the need for a credit check with your insurer.

What are the conditions of trading under a Discretionary Limit?

These limits are small, ($25,000) and rely on you doing your due diligence on your customer. In most cases you will need to order a credit report and it will need to return no adverse information.

No, GST amounts are excluded from your claim settlements.

Each insurer will have a date agreed in which you will need to notify of non-payments. Failure to do so could mean that you jeopardise your cover under the policy.

No, disputes are excluded under all Trade Credit Insurance Policies. Disputes will need rectified before cover can be considered.

A Credit Limit is an amount that your insurer is willing to cover your customer in the event of non payment or insolvency.

How do I calculate what my Credit Limit should be?

A Credit Limit is calculated by what your credit terms with your customer is. For example, if you have 60 day credit terms with your clients, you would apply for the highest amount that you would have oustanding with your clients for that 60 day period.

How does the insurer assess my request for a credit limit application?

Your credit limit application is determined by your insurer based on their credit report, industry insights in their ability to pay, their industry, and how long they’ve been trading.

Trade credit insurance is primarily designed to protect businesses from the risk of non-payment for goods or services they have provided. It is not limited to international trade activities only. While it may be particularly important for businesses involved in exporting or importing, it is equally valuable for companies that operate solely within their home markets.

If one of your customers is unable to pay due to insolvency or by default as per the insurers policy definition, then your insurer investigates the claim and if it’s approved, pays out the oustanding amount up to the insured percentage, less GST.
