Invoice Finance Scenario 2

Business in distress with Collect Out possibly needed

So one of your clients is in Turnaround, Distress or Special Situations? Whatever you choose to call it, they need help fast and even then it may be too late.

Credebt are regularly parachuted in at short notice to assess the situation and provide sensible solutions.

We act fast and get on site to find out the best solution.

Stage 1: Debtor Collateral Review

Following an initial conversation, we always suggest that the first step is to get us out to site to carry out a comprehensive Debtor Collateral Review. We do this initial review at NO CHARGE to you, regardless of the outcome. It includes:

On-site visit usually within 24 hours but guaranteed within 48 hours to review the following:

  • Copy invoices
  • Order to Cash process
  • Details of any issues and queries
  • Backing paperwork
  • Aged Debt reports
  • Customer Master File

Whilst on-site, we tidy up the Ledger and immediately produce a report which indicates the true collectability of the Ledger and whether you are likely to recover your Capital in case a Collect Out is needed.

This can only be accurately assessed once the Order to Cash process has been fully understood, which is why it takes experts to do this.

We also review Aged Creditors, Contras and other issues that may impact collectability and leave no stone unturned in reaching a realistic figure for Collections.


Stage 2: advise course of action

After the Debtor Collateral Review we will be able to advise the correct course of action for you and your client.

This can be any or a combination of the following (please click links for full details of the service provided):


Stage 3: review results

No two circumstances are the same, so we have to be agile in our approach and ensure we do what is best for you, our client, to manage the risk with the Debtor Book, and prepare for all possible outcomes, including potential Insolvency and therefore a Collect Out.

Depending on the course of action we will review the results of each and move on to the next stage if and when required. We will advise on all the options available and the potential outcomes for each, and make our suggestions as to what is required and how quickly. 

Stage 4: CASE concluded

Credebt have successfully helped many distressed businesses, ranging from a £120 million turnover Freight Company, a £60 million turnover Chemicals Company through to a £5 million turnover Printing Company.

Be assured that we don’t close a case until you are 100% happy with the results. We see things through to conclusion, whether that’s a happy retained client, a manage away or a Collect Out. We will only stop working once we know that you are happy with the outcome.

All you need to do in this circumstance is to instruct us to carry out a Free Debtor Collateral Review and we will do the rest.

We have instructed Credebt to support our collections on several occasions, and have always been happy with the approach, professionalism, communication and the end result, which has resulted in us recovering our client’s funding position in full.
