5.) What advice would you give to the business or consumer to avoid bad debt?

Bad debt occurs when businesses ignore little things such as:

  • Checking the business and consumer background of the client before offering them credit
  • Setting conservative credit limits for customers
  • Waiting to release goods until after the payment has cleared.
  • Likewise, waiting for direct deposit payments to clear before shipping goods and material
  • Sending out an invoice immediately to the responsible person once the job is complete
  • Provide all the relevant information on your invoice to make payments easy
  • Keeping in contacts with your clients regularly
  • Offer a small discount to your clients if payments are made early or in advance.
