Export Insurance
To protect Qatari exporters from risks imposed by overseas buyers, TASDEER provides two types of export credit guarantees: Pre-shipment risk cover and post-shipment risk cover.

These two products protect exporters against commercial and political risks and allow them to submit claims in the event of nonpayment. Exporters are highly advised to have these two guarantees when dealing with new buyers and while engaging in foreign trade in high risk countries.

These products relieve companies of the burden of maintaining additional capital for export financing.

Pre-shipment risk cover
Risk cover before consignment protects Qatar exporters against loss of produce (direct or indirect), or when an order is cancelled before the goods are shipped. Exporters producing custom-made products that may not be resalable, especially when production may be discontinued due to political or commercial risks, should seriously consider taking up risk cover before consignment. The guarantee covers 90% of the value of production. Claims must be submitted within two months of receiving notification of the loss, providing all the necessary documents are in order when submitting the claim.

In brief, it is a credit cover used to ensure the protection of exporters from losing major costs (direct) resulting from the cancellation or the violation of manufacturing contract.
  • Coverage begins on contract signing OR beginning manufacturing; ends with shipment of goods.
  • Coverage for all political and commercial risks
  • 90% from the production cost

Post-shipment risk cover
Post-shipment risk cover protects against the risk of an overseas buyer failing to pay for goods received on credit. This coverage is intended to protect transactions with repayment terms not exceeding 24 months, and mainly includes the supply of consumer goods, raw materials, semi-finished goods and spare parts. Similar to the pre-shipment risk cover, the guarantee covers 90% of the value of goods. Claims can be made within two months of lodgement, providing all the necessary documents are in order when submitting the claim.

In brief, it is a credit cover used to protect the seller’s commercial account receivables against buyer’s default.
  • Coverage begins on shipment of goods; ends with payment of goods
  • Coverage for all political and commercial risks
  • 90% from the transaction value
