What is Premium Funding?

Premium Funding allows your business to spread the cost of its insurance premiums over the year. Rather than paying your annual premiums upfront, you can borrow the value of your premiums and then pay them off in monthly instalments, plus interest.

KBI has relationships with several Premium Finance Companies and would be pleased to provide you with a competitive quote.

Can Premium Funding help my business?

The primary benefit of Premium Funding is that it prevents the need for a large outlay of cash. Premium Funding might be considered by:

Businesses that do not have the cash available to pay insurance premiums upfront (but could pay in monthly instalments.)
Businesses that expect to get a greater benefit from using their liquid assets for investment or profit-making activity.
Businesses with a variable or unpredictable cash flow. Premium Funding allows them to keep their cash on hand in case they need it.

What are the benefits of Premium Funding?

There are many reasons that a business might choose Premium Funding over paying insurance premiums upfront or borrowing from other sources. These include:

Conserved cash flow

Premium Funding frees up cash for profit-generating activities.

Flexible payment options

You can make your instalments in a number of ways, including by debit and credit card.

An additional line of credit

You can borrow to cover your insurance premiums without affecting existing finance arrangements like overdrafts.

A simple application process

KBI will organise quotes from trusted Premium Funding Partners. Once you pick a program, the application is simple.

No collateral required to your assets

Security for the loan is absorbed over your insurance policies. You will not need to offer assets as collateral or make additional financial guarantees.

Tax deductible interest

Your commercial insurance premiums and the interest charged on Premium Funding are both tax deductible.
