Commercial Debt Collection

The longer one waits, the greater the danger is of never collecting the debt.

What is debt collection?

Almost 80% of exporters experience overdue payments. Late payments are an unavoidable fact of business life. The longer one waits, the greater the danger is of never collecting the debt. 

Unpaid invoices can seriously affect your business by slowing cash flow, reducing inventory turnover, harming credit ratings and even tarnishing your company’s reputation. That is why you need debtor insurance.

The ability to listen, educate and instil trust are all factors that smooth dialogue with a late-paying customer. Collectors explain they are there to help find a solution. They therefore explain the position of the supplier who has submitted the outstanding invoice payment for them to collect, that they do not intend to act as their customers’ bank. Customers understand these arguments. Debt collectors, as a neutral party in the customer’s eyes, can quickly pinpoint the source of the payment problem, and then find a solution that satisfies both sides and contributes to unpaid invoices and debt recovery. If the late payment is the result of a dispute over the order, they collect a description of the shortcomings in question from the customer and the “undisputed” aspects to report this information back to the supplier. If cash flow is the problem, they will suggest rescheduling reasonable proportions.
