CREDIT CONTROL

How do you feel about chasing your clients for money?

Do you have the time?

Are you embarrassed asking for money?

Is it always the task that is at the bottom of your list?


An important part of any enterprise is the management of monies through the       business, whether this is paying outgoing bills, invoicing or collecting monies in.   Credit control is one key aspect that is often overlooked, deferred or dealt with only when absolutely necessary. However when managed properly it can make an important and vital difference to the cashflow of the business and can actually reduce the          reliance on borrowing facilities.


At Help 4 Businesses we have proved that by having an effective system in place we can make an improvement to the finances of businesses.


We will manage the chasing of your invoices for you. You provide us with a list of     invoices outstanding, with contact details and we will then chase each week on your behalf and report back to you weekly with an update and when funds are expected. All we then ask is that you check for receipt of the funds and keep us informed.

SETTING UP / RUNNING INVOICE SYSTEMS

Do you have an efficient system in place?

Do you send out your invoices regularly?

Do you send monthly statements?

Do you have the time?


What is an invoice? A document issued by a seller to a buyer / client. It identifies both thepartieslists, describes, and quantifies thesold, shows the date of/ delivery, price, discount (if any), andandpayment terms.


An invoice is one of the most important documents that any business issues. For an       invoice to be paid promptly by the buyer it should be sent in a timely manner, be set out clearly and with the business terms clearly displayed.


You may already have a system in place that suits your business needs however you may not have the time to send out your invoices weekly / monthly. At Help 4 Businesses we will send out the invoices on your behalf, either by visiting your premises or with you emailing us the details.


Alternatively we will set up a new system for you, we will then show you how to use the new system for you to continue using or we will visit regularly to carry on sending out your    invoices for you.

INSURANCE QUOTES

When was the last time you reviewed your insurances?

Do always just pay the renewal?

Or do you always shop around?


What is insurance? A promise of compensation for specific potential future losses in exchange for a periodic payment. Insurance is designed to protect the financial     well-being of an individual or company in the case of an unexpected loss.


All businesses pay insurance and they are a necessary cost that can add up to a     considerable amount. There are also personal insurances, house insurance, car           insurance, travel insurance.


You may have a broker that reviews all your insurances annually however if you do not then Help 4 Businesses will review them, including your personal insurances for you. You provide us with your renewal schedule and we will do the ‘shopping around’.

BUSINESS EVENTS

Have you ever hosted an event before to thank existing    clients or to attract new ones?

Are you good at planning?

Do you have the staff to host an event?


A great way to get new clients and grow your enterprise is to host an event to raise the profile of your business.

Firstly, you must establish who your potential clients are and therefore who you want to invite. Choosing the correct location is very important - would it be best to have a stand at a show, have clients visit your own premises or hire a local venue?

Then you must plan the logistics including the invitations, the catering, the seating and all of these are key to the success of the event.

Would you like to show your guests a presentation? Do you need to arrange to have    business pamphlets or catalogues available?

How will you follow up potential leads?

There is a lot to think about if you are planning an event, you want to spend your money wisely so you achieve your goals and help your business grow.

At Help 4 Businesses we will sit down with you and plan each and every step of the event that you want to host. We understand that every business is individual in what it needs and we will tailor the event to your enterprise.

We will organise the venue, the catering, send out invites on your behalf. We will attend the event to co-ordinate and host with you. We will help you to prepare your presentation.  We could then follow up potential leads on your behalf, all so that you can maximise your profile and grow your business.



LENDING PROPOSALS

How would you approach a lending provider for finance?

Would you just hand in a set of financial accounts?

Do you know all the information that is needed?

Are you thinking of switching banks?


What is borrowing? Borrowing is the temporary acquisition of money with the intent to repay the amount borrowed. In a financial sense, if you borrow money, you assume a debt to the lender. The most common form of borrowing happens between a       business and a financial institution usually a bank and is usually in the form of an     overdraft or loan.


When you approach a bank it will have regulations and rules that will govern the    reviewing of the lending proposition. The representative of the finance provider will have questions that need answering to allow them to put together a proposal.

Help 4 Businesses has the experience to prepare a lending proposal for you to take to your finance provider. Having worked in a local commercial banking team, both Gill and Louise know what is expected and required.

You need to present your proposition to your Bank in a professional way and we will help you to do this. This is no guarantee that you will get the funds but it will certainly have a better chance of success.

We will spend time with you getting to know your business, reviewing with you your plans for both the short and long term. We will draw up a cashflow and a balance sheet of your assets and liabilities. We will review with you your future plans to ensure that your request is not only affordable but helps to grow your business.

Although Gill has only been working with me for a short space of time I have noticed immediate results.  She chased down the invoices that I really thought that I had no hope of getting paid on. We are now working together to get me on “top of my invoices”. We get results every week and my cash flow has improved.   KW
