Protect your invoices

With Hokodo you can check your customers' credit score, select the invoices you want to insure and get paid in time - regardless of whether your customers pay or not.

Providing peace of mind by protecting your invoices against non-payment

We know cashflow probably keeps you up at night. Late payment of invoices is one of the leading causes of small business failure across Europe.

Although the insurance industry has developed some products to address this problem, these solutions are cumbersome and economically unavailable to small and medium sized businesses. Not anymore thanks to Hokodo.

Our ambition is to bring you peace of mind and give you visibility over your cash. With Invoice Protection, you now have a simple solution against the risk of non-payment.

Any questions? We have the answers

  • Why does my business need Invoice Protection?

    Late or non payment of invoices by clients is the main reason businesses run into financial distress or become insolvent. Invoice Protection helps you collect your unpaid invoices faster, and protects you in the event that your buyer defaults.

  • How much does it cost?

    The insurance cost depends on your customer’s risk profile. It will typically range between 0.3% and 2% of the invoice value.

  • How much will I get paid?

    Invoice Protection helps protect you against the risk of non-payment. You’re guaranteed to receive at least 90% of the value of your B2B invoice, so long as it is valid.
    In case of non-payment, you can make a claim 45 days after the due date. We will take care of the whole collections and indemnification process. We aim to settle the claim within 15 days, however, this can take longer in the event additional investigation is needed.

  • Are you FCA approved?

  • What is Hokoscore?

    Hokoscore assesses the level of financial health of a given company in the next 12 months with a number (1 to 5 stars). 5 stars are granted to companies in good financial health and 1 star for companies facing substantial default risks.

  • What do the Hokoscore company ratings mean?

    Each company is rated by Hokoscore on a scale from 1 to 5:
    1 star = Danger
    We do not recommend extending credit terms to this company unless you are really confident that you will get paid.
    2 stars = Caution
    This firm has a weak credit rating. Manage your exposure to this company carefully.
    3 stars = Acceptable
    This firm has acceptable financial health, but you should still ensure you can withstand the costs of any default.
    4 stars = Fair
    This firm has reasonable financial health, though invoice protection can provide additional security.
    5 stars = Excellent
    This firm has strong financial health.

Many of the conversations with businesses have revolved around how they are getting ready for the grand re-opening of the UK economy, and whether or not they’ll be granting trade credit to their customers.
