For most small or home businesses, problems with cash flow is often the biggest fear you have. Will you get paid, and will you get paid in a timely fashion.
There are those that just won’t pay. And for certain industries, a type of customer that can cost you thousands of dollars a year in real terms, not to mention lost opportunity through missed appointments.
It’s these debts that you need to hand over to a debt collection agency. Unfortunately most debt collection agencies are not interested in your small debt.
That’s where Sentinel Credit Services are different. Our debt collection services are specifically designed to help businesses just like yours collect debts across New Zealand.
With a tried and tested approach to collection using a series of effective debt collection letters, phone calls, texts and email, we are confident we can help businesses just like yours recover their delinquent debts. And if that doesn’t work, we have the processes to take the matter all the way to court, even for small debts.
It’s 3.40pm, and your client hasn’t turned up. What do you do?
(a) ignore it
(b) get angry
(c) text them
(d) ask them to pay
Most service businesses that work on a scheduled appointment basis will do (b), then a combination of (a) and (c).
But the reality is you should go for (d); if a person made an appointment then didn’t show up, they are liable for the cost of their allotted time if you could not find another paying client to replace them.
If you have clients who have not shown up, or don’t transfer payment for their appointment, you don’t have to write it off.
Sentinel Credit Services is a debt collection agency that understands the problems small businesses just like yours face. We have built a system that lets you get on with working with your paying clients, while we chase the bad apples.
We charge commission only, so there is no upfront costs. If we can’t collect a debt, you pay nothing.
And we’ll even help ensure that any debt collection costs can be added to your debtor’s bill for future problems.
