Debt collection legal protection insurance

COLLECTING UNDISPUTED RECEIVABLES

It’s tiresome for companies when their customers or suppliers fail to pay. And more often than not, the tedious reminder processes that follow end with the amount having to be written off as bad debt. With debt collection legal protection insurance you have a strong partner at your side, ready to enforce your claims. This module can only be taken out as an optional extra to the corporate legal protection insurance BASIC.

FAQ

The insurance cover applies to cases of debt collection that relate to a debt that has been incurred during the term of the insurance contract and reported to Fortuna within this time period. A waiting period of 60 days from the start of the contract applies. The waiting period does not apply if the same risk was insured by a previous insurer and if the insurance transition occurs without interruption. When the contract comes to an end, the insurance is renewed automatically for one year at a time unless cancelled one month beforehand.

Debt collection legal protection insurance has a maximum insured amount of CHF 50'000 per debt collection case and provides up to 15 credit assessments a year.

 

Cover applies throughout Switzerland. 

Your company and the operating activities of the co-insured companies and subsidiaries listed in your policy.

The premium is based on your company’s operations, revenue, total payroll and number of employees.
