How does Hermes Cover click&cover EXPORT work?
In the case of supplier credit cover, the exporter allows the foreign buyer time for payment and bears the risks arising in connection with this loan, e.g. payment default, himself. Short-term Supplier Credit Guarantees (repayment terms not exceeding 24 months) are offered by the Federal Government mainly for cover of the supply of consumer goods, raw materials, semi-finished goods, or spare parts. Supplier Credit Guarantees for medium-term transactions with repayment terms of more than 24 months are applied primarily in the capital goods and plant sector.
Worth knowing: The counterpart of a supplier credit is a buyer credit where a bank extends a loan to the foreign buyer with which the exporter is paid already when the goods are shipped. The exporter can then take out cover for the remaining risk of non-disbursement of the buyer credit.
