Target group

German export firms


Payment terms of the covered transactions

  • Short-term (up to 12 months, in exceptional cases up to 24 months)


Insurable risks

Revolving supplier credit cover offers protection against payment default, particularly if

  • the foreign buyer becomes insolvent
  • the buyer fails to make payment within 6 months after due date (protracted default)
  • adverse measures are taken by foreign governments or warlike events arise
  • local currency amounts are not converted or transferred
  • goods are confiscated due to political circumstances
  • contract performance becomes impossible due to political circumstances


Special features

As a rule, cover facilities are available for all countries, with the exception of exports on credit terms of up to two years to EU and core OECD member states (i.e. EU member states, Australia, Canada, Iceland Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, United Kingdom and USA).



  • A certain percentage of the order value covered (interest excluded) as well as specific processing fees
  • In the first contract year a so-called advance premium is charged which is later deducted from the premium amounts due for the individual transactions.
  • For a detailed calculation there is an interactive premium calculator (German version only)available.
