What is Bad Debt Protection?
Bad Debt Protection, also known as ‘BDP,’ ‘Debtor Insurance,’ or ‘Credit Insurance,’ is commonly used alongside accounts receivable (A/R) factoring. Credit Insurance provides clients with the peace of mind that if the customer fails to pay for reasons of insolvency or protracted slow pay, the business will have protection from losses. A/R Factoring is also called Invoice Factoring.
Bankers Factoring provides bad debt protection (B2B credit risk management) through our non-recourse AR factoring service. Part of our factoring service includes credit risk management to protect your business from unforeseen circumstances or volatility.
