Payment default insurance
Protection against your debtors’ insolvency
When a debtor becomes insolvent, this poses a significant financial risk to your business and causes you to spend considerable time and effort on collecting outstanding accounts receivable. To protect you against your business partners’ insolvency, Intermarket Bank assumes the risk of default for you under a payment default insurance policy.
As soon as you take out a payment default insurance policy, a limit is set for each debtor. If one of your business partners becomes insolvent, you receive up to 90 % of the outstanding accounts receivable directly from us.
Transactions with new foreign partners can be particularly risky from a financial viewpoint. We therefore assume 100 % of the risk of default on your export transactions to foreign countries by means of export factoring.
Drawing on our long-standing experience and acting with utmost professionalism, we protect your business against your business partners’ insolvency.
Financial security for exporters
When you establish business relationships with new customers abroad, the distance, the language, but also legal and cultural barriers may complicate cooperation. With export factoring, you no longer have to worry about late payments and can build a relationship of trust with your foreign customers right from the start.
When you use export factoring, you as an exporter enter into a factoring agreement with Intermarket Bank that is governed by Austrian law.
We assume 100 % of the risk of non-payment for you and immediately finance 80 % of the amount of your accounts receivable. Should your foreign partner fail to pay the invoice within 90 days, we pay the remaining 20 % to you.
