Credit is Crucial
Credit-worthy customers are crucial to any business. As a business owner, it is important to limit your own credit risk, practice due diligence regarding your customer’s creditworthiness, and refrain from extending credit that is beyond profit margins.
Customers at risk for not paying your invoices put your business at risk. Confirming the credit-worthiness of your customers before you enter into a business relationship should be a routine business practice and there are a good number of companies that can provide credit services.
Business owner’s need to be diligent and also need to be careful not to overextend credit even to the most credit-worthy customers. Never extend credit to an amount your business cannot afford to lose in the event they do not pay. Businesses with the best credit ratings are still at risk for unexpected events which may change their ability to pay.
Credit Insurance companies provide insurance that protects businesses from non-payment of debt from commercial accounts. Assuring that the business will get paid gives the business owner the ability to manage risks and better accounts receivable management and cash flow. The credit companies look at your credit-worthy customers and set limits for the amount they will cover for non-payment. Accounts receivable comprises about 40% of a company’s assets which is a major component for a successful business. There are a number of companies providing this type of insurance for business owners. As your business grows, this may be an important business investment to assure success.
