Your Credit Policy – just a simple document to set out the rules is all that is needed here, that sets out your approach to risk, especially high risk potentially profitable accounts.

Your Credit Terms – are they clear, are they communicated, are they enforceable and are they enforced? Setting lines of credit for your new and existing customers beyond just a credit report. Understanding the story the figures are telling you and what to look out for.

Opening new accounts – the do’s and the don’ts.

Dealing with disputes and queries – and putting procedures in place to eliminate them.

Timely follow up (Internally and Externally) – the key ingredient in successful collections.
Finally, what to do when it all seems to be going wrong – the last thing on the list is legal action that can be time consuming, expensive and ineffective.
