What is bad debt protection?

Our Bad Debt Protection service gives you the confidence of knowing you will receive payment for all your hard-earned sales even in the event of a customer insolvency ensuring no disruption to your cash flow.

It is a sad reality that many businesses experience insolvency each year. At Advantedge Commercial Finance, we know that assessing your customers ability to pay can be difficult and you don’t want to turn business away.  In the event of non payment, recovering monies that are owed to you for goods and or services already supplied can have a serious and detrimental effect on your business.
