Credit control is important now more than ever
Seeing money drop in your business bank account for the hard work you and your team have done is a great feeling. As a small business owner it’s also stressful if customers hold back paying or suppliers delay.
With business insolvencies hitting record numbers in recent months, there may be more risks in your business than you know.
The UK saw a 13% increase in the number of insolvencies over the 3 months to June 2023, marking the highest level since 2009.
By checking and monitoring the financial health of your customers and suppliers you can have better data to make decisions.
“Capitalise’s tailored packages offered us a more affordable solution to credit check our customers to see how much credit we should be offering. This helped with our credit control as we knew who to bill with credit, and who needed to pay up front, and the monitoring tool helped us highlight a company that was in liquidation.”
- Johanna, Wholesaler.
Sync contacts and invoices from Xero, QuickBooks and Sage
With our latest update, once cloud accounting is connected, the contacts and invoices are synchronised. By selecting which contacts should be monitored, those will be added to Credit Risk Manager
The platform will automatically synchronise the latest invoice data periodically, or this can be triggered manually at the top of the screen.
With the companies set-up and monitored, this keeps track of the risks with your debtor book, alongside tracking for any emerging risks which might result in late payments or ultimately bad debts.
