How would you determine credit worthiness of a company?

4 Answers

Pull a D&B and then find out the company’s current asset and liability position , amount of COH / liquidity of all assets, set up an informal interview with the CFO or controller if possible, time in business, any legal issues to note, then pull all that information together to determine credit worthiness. There is not set formula but when you underwrite loans or even do collections for a living you get a sense of the whole picture when u pull all pieces together and got from there. Never disregard you guy . What is your impression? The more info the better of you are and the better paper you’ll write for your bosses Less

Tell me about a time when you were trying to collect from a difficult customer and what did you do?

1 Answers

Hopefully there are strong policies and processes to fall back on. When I worked property management I often had to try and collect rent from non-payers. I issued verbal and written reminders and warnings per policy and when they still did not pay they were evicted. This seems harsh but they knew the agreement up front and we did not stray from it. We offered opportunities to come in and talk about the situation and to find a feasible solution. Some people took advantage of the opportunity and we worked payment plans with them. Others were simply evicted. If you hold firm to the policies and processes customers will know you are serious and fair. Less
