With a „classic“ trade credit insurance the supplier concludes into a contract with the insurance company in order to secure his outstanding trade receivables. In this case the supplier has to provide a substantial self-retention

If the coverage is effected via euro delkredere the customer (=buyer of the goods) initiates the insurance. In this case the supplier does not have to provide a self-retention, his receivables are genereally fully covered.

We offer improved supply chain cover from a buyer’s and supplier’s perspective

Suppliers and euro delkredere become contracting parties for a defined term in the case of central settlement using del credere cover. This provides security and stability in a transparent contractual relationship.

By signing the central settlement and del credere contract the supplier acquires full cover of his receivables.

The supplier obtains a direct claim for payment against a financially sound credit insurer with „AA-“-rating to the full amount of his receivables.

Central settlement process

euro delkredere pays the suppliers – other processes are not affected! We ensure a smooth and transparent process and provide the supplier with timely reporting of payments.

The terms of payment agreed between the customer and supplier are not changed nor are any other conditions and agreements.

euro delkredere does not know the product purchase prices and conditions. The supplier continues to send his invoices to the customer only.

  • Direct claim against the insurer
  • Rating for Zürich and Euler Hermes actually „AA-“

The customer releases the payments together with euro delkredere. The suppliers receive a settlement notice from us with all the relevant details for accounting one day before the payment. Accounts receivable management can clear the open items and arrangements can be made for the expected payment.

Substantial advantages for our customers and suppliers.

Insolvency administrator / Trustee

In cases of crisis and extraordinary situations we also ensure stability in the supply chain.

We were able to find solutions to cover the suppliers during the preliminary proceedings.
