Credit Application Sample

Do you know who you are dealing with?

You need to know who you are dealing with before you commence a new business relationship.

You need to obtain upfront information about the business and persons you are about to provide with credit. The best way to obtain this information is to request that your new customer completes and signs your Credit Application Form.

So be smart and protect yourself from defaulting customers.

The information from the Credit Application Form can also be used to make a decision as to their credit worthiness. Credit Reports, Credit Checks and Credit Scoring can be obtained to support your decision as to the amount of credit that you are willing to provide to the new customer.
Remember it is your money and you need to protect yourself.

Are your collection costs recoverable?

To be able to legally recover your collection costs you need the correct documentation in place from the beginning of your business relationship.

So what do you need to have in place to get it right?
  • You need a correctly drafted clause that allows you to recover your debt collection and legal costs.
  • You need to have made your customer aware of this clause before entering into a contract.
  • You need to make sure that the costs being added are commercially priced and not overstated.
  • And to make your claim enforceable, you need evidence that your client agreed to the clause. 

The best way to achieve this is to make sure that this clause is in your credit application and that your customer signs this application before you commence supply or works.
Debt Collection Cost Recovery

Includes Directors Guarantee

Did you know that there are around 40 companies that go into liquidation every day? So what happens when a company goes into liquidation?

Collection action stops against the company and you deal with the liquidator. It is unlikely that you will see any return of your money by the liquidator.

So what can you do to help protect yourself?

If you have a personal guarantee with the directors of the company you can pursue them for the outstanding monies instead of the company. For the guarantee to be enforceable:

  • The guarantee needs to be signed by the guarantor.
  • The guarantor needs to understand that they are guaranteeing the debts of the company.

You need to make sure that the personal guarantee is in your credit application and that your customer signs this guarantee before you commence supply or works.

Debt Collection and Personal Guarantee

How does the credit application make you money?

If a customer defaults on their obligations the more information you know about them the more likely you will get paid. The more you legally secure your debt the more likely you will get paid.

The more you protect yourself from the costs associated with defaulting customers the more profit you make. By using the Credit Application Form it really does make you money!

Enjoy peace of mind knowing that you have a professionally drafted Credit Application Form.

Being proactive can save you thousands!
