CRA Trust Overrides Contractual Right To Set Off

Q and A (1)
Is credit insurance the answer to a credit managerâ€™s prayer?
Not in every case! By the time a credit limit is requested on a buyer, the writing may already be on the wall and the underwriters can’t increase their exposure. This information in itself is useful.
In some cases, the underwriters may only be able to cover some of the exposure due to the credit evaluation or their current level of exposure. Again, this is useful information. In most cases, at least one of the underwriters will be able to approve the buyers. When this happens, credit managers can sleep like babies knowing that they are protected from the unforeseen. Once the credit limit is in place the underwriters monitor the buyer and they will advise you if problems are arising.
Underwriters can, and definitely will, cancel or reduce credit limits, but the cancellation or reduction only applies to future shipments. They have no retroactive effect. Your insured exposures remain insured.
