So one of your clients has asked you for an over-payment, or an increase in their pre-payment percentage, but they haven’t explained why!
Or they have explained why, and that worries you!
Credebt are regularly parachuted in at short notice to assess the situation and provide options, and even advise whether the request should be accepted or denied, and why.
We act fast and get on site to find the best solution whilst carrying out our Debtor Collateral Review.
Credebt have successfully assisted many Funders in this situation, and our Review will uncover the reasons for this request, if not already known.
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:
Order to Cash process
Details of any issues and queries
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.
THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS INITIAL VISIT, REGARDLESS OF OUTCOME
Stage 2: advise course of action
After the Debtor Collateral
Recommended service: Monitoring Collections
2. Not collecting the Debt very well, but they have the resource to do it
Recommended service: Credit and Collections Policy and Procedures
3. Aged Debt unacceptably high
Recommended service: Assistance with Collections
4. Collections are not being dealt with at all, or not well enough
Recommended service: Take over Collections – Intensive Care
5. Significant Creditor pressure, which means potential Insolvency and Collect Out
Recommended service: Pre-appointment Credit Control
6. Business has stated this is very temporary and when no other issues have been found, it is agreed under certain conditions.
Recommended service: Controlling Funds Out position
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
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. This will include advice on whether the request for over-payment should be granted, and provide the reason it was requested, so you can make an informed decision.
