 Collection Agency Tips for San Francisco Businesses:

Extending credit to business customers is just like a bank giving a company a line of credit.  Before the bank does this, they collect information on the company and carefully analyze it.  Businesses need to do the same thing before extending credit.

Many companies subscribed to credit evaluation services and simply rely on these to determine the credit worthiness of a new customer.  These reports do provide valuable information.  Clearly if a business has been established for many years and pays its vendors on a timely basis, that will give you comfort.

But a credit report alone is not enough to protect you if something goes wrong.  A well designed credit application collects important information in the event of problems, and it is your opportunity to state the legal terms of your business relationship with your customer.  For tips on how to review the information on a credit application, see this article in our resource center.
