As a business owner, you’ll know how vital it is that your cashflow is maintained, whatever is going on in the wider marketplace. One of the biggest difficulties with maintaining a steady cashflow is the impact of unpaid debt. If you have outstanding money owed by customers, don’t feel you have to wait forever before taking action to get repaid.
A slowly developing problem
For many business owners, the creep of unpaid debt isn’t noticed until the problem has grown large enough to cause serious disruption. In the interest of having the broadest possible appeal to customers, a business will want to offer flexible payment methods. Within those payment methods, payments may start to get later and later.
If the person in debt is already a loyal customer, it can be difficult to initiate the collections process. Similarly, if they’re a new customer and you’re hoping that they will become a loyal one, you may want to give them the benefit of the doubt by allowing longer payment terms. The issue with this is that before you know it, there can be a serious problem building.
Unpaid debts are rarely isolated instances; there are usually multiple customers who have not squared what they owe your business. If they have done it to one business, they’ll likely do it to another, so the odds of your business getting what it’s owed becomes even smaller again. This is how easy it is for a mountain of unpaid debt to start forming.
How can you avoid this problem?
