    Which factors to consider for new customers?

    First you should do is get to know your customer. You should do this before you take on a new customer and before you give them any credit. The bare minimum of what you should know is:

    • the exact name of the customer and the trading address (consider using Companies House Webcheck service)
    • their type of business structure, e.g. are they a sole trader, a partnership or a limited company?
    • names and personal addresses of the proprietors’ if their structure is unincorporated. Consider verifying letter headed paper to support this information
    • contact other suppliers to obtain references
    • their credit rating

    Before you provide goods or services to any customer make sure you address the following:

    • discuss and agree payment terms with the customer before accepting the order
    • agree the terms in writing
    • review any documentation from the customer where they try to change the agreed payment terms
    • negotiate and agree payment terms with suppliers before accepting the order
    • if there is a gap between customer and supplier payment terms, consider whether finance is available to bridge the payment gap. This will require an understanding of your working capital management
    • produce a cash flow forecast covering all expected income and expenses
    • have a standard policy in place to ensure that payment terms cannot be altered without appropriate authorisation
    • ensure that you have the right to apply late payment and interest charges on invoices

    After you have provided goods or services to a customer ensure that you:

    • raise invoices promptly
    • raise invoices accurately to ensure all items are included at the quoted prices
    • include a reference number for the order and then quote this if any dispute arises
    • have everything the customer requires on the invoice
    • have a process for chasing invoices
    • have a process for dealing with disputes
    • keep a log of disputes to ascertain whether similar disputes or customers occur
    • ensure that your invoices are fully compliant with HMRC for VAT purposes
