When was the last time you stopped and asked these important questions?
- Right now, how much money is outstanding on your sales ledger?
- How much do you know about your customers’ ability to pay you?
- How much would your business suffer if some of your largest customers failed to make crucial payments to you? Could it make the difference between failure and survival of your business?
More than 50% of all UK insolvencies involve customers who previously paid promptly. Businesses may have up to 60% of assets linked to the sales ledger and slow payments can be a serious problem. In fact, statistics show that companies, on average, are likely to lose more than three active customers each year to financial distress, insolvency, administration or receivership.
