How to get paid & not the run around

Are debtors who are slow to pay sucking the fun out of business for you?

“The cheque’s in the mail.” Yeh right, we’ve all heard that before. Trying to get money out of late payers is an aspect of business many people find onerous if not downright unpleasant.

But it doesn’t have to be! To quote an old cliché, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Here are just two things you can do to protect yourself:

1. Put systems in place to make it clear to your clients before you provide them with your product or service exactly when you expect to be paid and what will happen if they don’t play by the rules. Just writing pay by the 20th of the month on the invoice isn’t sufficient!

2. Be very careful to whom you extend credit. New privacy and bankruptcy laws are making it harder to track down and recover debts so you need to do thorough checks before making that decision.

And there are a number of other things you can do too…
