What is HKECIC?
The Hong Kong Export Credit Insurance Corporation (HKECIC) was founded in 1966. It provides Hong Kong exporters with indemnities and assesses trade credits for international importers. Regardless of importer insolvency, with HKECIC, exporters still receive payment.

With a HKECIC-backed credit limit in place, you can reap the benefits of postponed payment terms (of 90 to 180 days) that you can set up with a Hong Kong-based supplier
How it works
Company data & documents
The initial step is to provide Axton Global with your financial statements. We organize the paperwork and submit it to HKECIC to get your company's credit limit assessment underway.
HKECIC credit analysis
HKECIC will go through your paperwork to assess your company and its financial status. This will lead to a decision on your credit limit, taking approximately 21 days.
Establish a sales contract
You will settle on terms for a sales contract with a Hong Kong exporter and sign it. The contract will specify the deferred payment terms you have agreed to.
Credit limit launch
Your supplier will launch a credit limit with HKECIC. If you want to use a credit limit with several exporters, no less than $100,000 should be used for each supplier.
Goods are shipped
Once you have made a customary deposit of 10 – 30% of the order value, your supplier will ship the ordered goods. The outstanding fees should then be paid within the agreed postponed payment terms.
Make the payment
Make the final payment for the remainder owed on the imported items within the allotted time frame. This agreement is insured by HKECIC, which will collect payment if you default and pay the insurance compensation to your supplier.

What are HKECIC-approved credit limits?

Officially HKECIC-approved credit limits are the established maximum number of trade credits that you are permitted from your Hong Kong supplier (or suppliers). A written document will authorize these credit limits, which will be granted after a successful credit evaluation.

The HKECIC documentation will feature:

Your established upper credit limit
The stipulated credit period
Your company's name
Your supplier's name
