Workshop aims to tackle the scourge of late payments head on

July 2, 2012

Among all the reasons why running a business is as tough as it's ever been being paid late for the goods and services we provide ranks high on the list of the most unacceptable.

That's the view of Luisa Grey, a Director at Cambridgeshire-based Eazipay, one of the UK's leading Direct Debit processing companies.

In response to recent industry research showing that UK SMEs are owed a staggering £35.3 billion in late payments, Eazipay is hosting an "Avoiding Late Payments" breakfast workshop at The Maltings, Ely on Wednesday 11th July 2012.

The aim of the workshop, says Luisa, is to give SMEs tips and advice on how they can ensure that their businesses are paid what they are owed, and paid on time.

We have brought together a team of experts representing the law, finance, accounting and factoring sectors with the intention of giving SMEs real, tactical insights into the measures they can take to make sure they are paid, and at the same time, are minimising risks to their cash flows.

This workshop is concerned with the hard commercial edge of being in business and the tips and techniques our experts will recommend can be implemented that afternoon.  Businesses that attend will see a difference to their cash flows and benefit from the confidence that comes from knowing that they, and not their customers, are in control of cash that is due to them.

Being in business is about making money and there is nothing more important than being paid for our goods and services.  It is a real concern that viable, profitable companies have to cut back on staff and investment because their customers are delaying payment.

Ultimately these companies could be driven out of business and that is totally unacceptable.

Among the subjects the workshop will cover include: how to spot the tell-tale signs that a customer is in difficulties; how to make sure that a new customer is financially viable; how to become more than just an invoice number with your customer; how to protect your cash flow and how to pursue a customer for payment without necessarily losing them.

Our experts will be explaining that even in these tough times there are very positive measures business owners can take to ensure that they are paid, which at the end of each month is what we all want, concludes Luisa.
