Private credit insurance covers exporting companies against a possible default by a foreign customer.

Your situation

You are an Austrian company and have delivered goods to a foreign customer, but your customer has not paid. You can cover your company against this possibility, in advance, through OeKB or its subsidiaries.

Our service: Covering your receivables!

In the case of export transactions for which default insurance has been taken out, OeKB or ACREDIA Versicherung AG, a 51 percent subsidiary of OeKB, will indemnify you in the event of payment defaults.

The enforcement of claims can be a long, drawn-out process, particularly in difficult markets with different legal systems. This is where we step in to ensure that you get your money quickly.

Small bad debts, big consequences:

An unpaid invoice of €12,000 doesn’t look especially bad at first glance. But if you’re aiming for your business to generate a margin of three percent, you’ll need an additional €400,000 in sales to cover the loss.
