CREDITSAFE RELEASES OFFICIAL ‘GETTING PAID FOR DUMMIES’ GUIDE
Creditsafe, the business intelligence experts, has announced the publication of its official ‘Getting Paid For Dummies’ guide to help businesses improve their cashflow.
The 35-page guide provides practical advice to ensure firms improve operational efficiency and reduce the risks associated with doing business. It highlights the importance of getting paid promptly and what suppliers should look out for at each stage of the payment process, including how to check up on prospects before taking them on as customers.
The book has four sections: the first explains ‘why getting paid on time is important’ and how cash moves around the business. It goes on to provide advice on ‘establishing the ground rules’ with potential customers in the second chapter and then explains how companies can go about ‘ensuring payment’. The guide’s final chapter deals with what businesses should do about ‘taking action when you don’t get paid’ and offers some key pointers to recovering the money.
The guide is being released as a limited edition and is the only ‘For Dummies’ book available that offers practical advice on credit referencing. It includes sample invoices and legal letters, as well as links to useful organisations and sources of advice.
David Knowles, Business Development Director at Creditsafe, said: “We’re very excited about the release of our very own ‘For Dummies’ guide and feel that it fills a very important gap in the series. The books have a very strong reputation for making complex issues easily comprehensible and we’re proud that the publishers selected us for this edition.
“It sounds obvious, but getting paid and on time is a massive part of business and could be the difference between boom and bust for a fledgling company; however it’s a part of business that is often ignored. The advice in the guide makes sense and is accessible for people that are not trained credit managers, often it’s just a case of being able to read a credit report properly and performing a few simple checks.
“The guide contains valuable information for companies that are worried about their due diligence when dealing with potential new customers as well as debtors.”
The limited edition free guide is available from www.creditsafeuk.com/dummies
