Personal Guarantee Insurance
We have helped resolve thousands of cases worth over one hundred million pounds in the 11 years, serving businesses throughout the UK. With that experience we are best able to manage the process of dealing with personal guarantees (PG), ensuring business owners and directors remain informed and protected throughout the process.
Offering a PG as assurance for credit can often be the only option. But before you put pen to paper you should be fully aware of the pitfalls and the potential consequences that could arrive should it be enforced.
Years of experience enables us to deliver in-depth and proactive guidance so that you can understand the full implications of the documentation you are about to sign. Whether it’s for a business loan, property lease, trade supply deal, asset lease agreement, or any other type of PG, working together, we ensure you receive considered and timely advice that will allow you to make an informed decision.
What is Personal Guarantee Insurance?
How can you insure a Personal Guarantee?
When the company initially applies to take out a loan, it is almost impossible to know if there will be any change to the company’s circumstances in the years to come. The company applies for the funds with the best of intentions, hoping to use the additional finance to help support and grow your business.
However, due to the unexpected nature of the business world, events may happen that mean the company is unable to keep up repayments at a later date. This is often through no fault of your own but means bearing the personal responsibility of repaying a large loan which can be extremely stressful.
This is why taking out insurance against a personal guarantee should be considered. It offers some peace of mind and protection in the event the company defaults on the loan and the personal guarantee is called in by the creditor.
The amount and cost of insurance cover available will vary as it is subject to a credit check on the company and each case is assessed on its own merits based on your company’s unique circumstances.
Insurance can be taken out either by the directors individually or on behalf of the directors by the limited company or LLP. And, if required, multiple guarantors can be included on a single policy.
When do you need Personal Guarantee Insurance?
If the company has taken out a loan with a creditor that has required you to offer a Personal Guarantee and the company is unable to pay it back in full, the personal guarantee is likely to be called in once it defaults.
Business owners or directors that find themselves in this situation might benefit from having PGI in place depending on its availability and affordability. It is also important to remember that a PGI is not always appropriate or available as each case is assessed on an individual basis.
We do not provide insurance ourselves but can put you in contact with organisations that do.
