Shouldn't you be making money, not chasing money?

Posted: 9th January 2019

Many SME businesses don’t have the resources to employ trained credit control personnel.

Yet, every day, more and more customers are paying later and later; 45 days, 60 days, even 90 + days is common. You need to make sure that your invoices are on top of the ‘to be paid’ pile. If invoices aren’t paid on time, how can overheads be covered and suppliers paid?

Sadly, the majority of business failures are down to poor cashflow. You can be the most profitable business, but no cash means that there could well be no business within 12 months.  

Without a credit control team most SME business managers end up chasing payments themselves. Are you having to juggle making money with chasing money? All that time spent on chasing late paying customers is time lost on building the business and making money.    

Not with invoice factoring - with a credit control team at your disposal, it’s all part of the service!

There is no need to make countless calls – half of which are ignored, and the other half spent listening to excuses and false promises of imminent payment.  All areas of the credit control process are taken care of with our factoring facilities... It’s all part of the service.
