If XXX is asked to continue providing paid-for services to a client after the client went into administration, the claimant must contact the insurer (via our broker) and ask for a "salvage waiver".

A "salvage waiver" protects our insurance claim and ensures that any money received from trading with the "in administration client" is not allocated by the insurer against the oldest debt, which is typically part of the insurance claim.

Knowing the terms of trade is fundamental – each insurer has its own agreement/policy. For instance, some insurers have a
‘salvage waiver’ clause in their policy, which means that if an ‘adverse event’ occurs, such as irregular payments, you may need to agree in advance any trading over the approval limit.
Failure to do so may have implications, including reducing the insurer’s liability and therefore your potential payout from the
insurer. For instance, the following scenario would result in a shortfall of £160,000 paid to the supplier.
