Don’t you hate it when a small business refuses to pay your invoices and says they have no money.  You are sure the owner is taking money out of the company for his personal expenses instead of paying vendors.  You’ve heard it’s easy to pierce the corporate veil and get paid.  Our latest blog explains why it isn’t that easy and tips to avoid this messy situation and increase the likelihood of getting paid.

This blog explains what circumstances make someone personally liable and what owners can do to legally not be responsible for the debts of their business.  While credit professionals learn this very early in their career, a surprising number of business owners and their staffs do not realize this until they learn they will never get paid for a past due invoice to one of their business customers.

As any collector is well aware, debtors have a tendency to reuse many of the same “sob stories” to explain why they haven’t paid their bills or why they are unable to make payments. While sometimes a debtor is telling the truth, more often than not these stories are at least partially fabricated in an attempt to delay the collection process. It is therefore important for collectors to know how to pick through the lies a debtor tells you in order to find the truth behind their non-payment, allowing you to make more informed decisions in how you proceed with the collection effort. Today’s blog post gives a few easy tips that will help you piece together the real story and improve your collection efforts once you know what’s really going on.

What do you do when your customer owes you lots of money and you can’t even get them to answer the phone?  Pray that they are still in business!  Once a company has ceased operating, it is difficult if not impossible to get paid.  The key is to not get to this point.  Our latest blog will help you learn how to confirm a company is defunct, and how to improve your debt collection success by pursuing the debt before the customer goes belly up.

In today’s blog, we talk about how adding a simple personal guaranty to your company’s credit application may help minimize the need for professional debt collection services.  When debt collection is necessary, having a personal guaranty can be helpful in the negotiation process.  The personal guaranty can even lead to a favorable court ruling, if litigation becomes necessary.

As a collector, what do you do when you catch a debtor in a lie? Do you immediately call them out on it, confronting the situation head-on, or do you let it slide? In debt collections, it is very important to know how to respond when you realize a debtor is lying to you. Each situation justifies a different response, and it's up to you as the collector to decide how best to react without damaging your ability to collect the outstanding debt.
Today's blog post can help you better understand how to react to a debtor you catch in a lie. Follow the link below to read more.

Our most recent blog post, titled Does knowing the truth about a debtor matter?, explains why knowing the reasons for a debtor's non-payment can be important in deciding on a collection strategy. If a debtor is struggling financially and truly cannot afford to pay off their debt, taking a hardline stance and demanding payment in full may be more harmful than helpful to your debt collection efforts. Personalizing collection efforts for each individual claim can be time-consuming, but can sometimes lead to significant improvement in collection success.
