Taking on new clients is integral to the success of any business venture. However, the common practice on taking clients based on goodwill and allowing them to place a large order with the promise of payment at a later date can often prove crippling. This happens when the client who places the order is simply in no position to pay you back. Such clients are often conmen who pose as clients to enjoy services for free. When you try to collect on their payments, they default. They may also file for bankruptcy at the last minute and leave you stranded.
Why Generate A Credit Report
A credit report can help you gauge the actual financial situation, and hence, value of your client. A credit report finds many applications. Suppose you are a raw materials manufacturer and a building contractor asks you for 100 kilograms of cement. If you fill this order on the promise of payment at a later date with a nominal or no advance, your newly acquired client has the capability to fleece you by not delivering on the promised payment. This represents a large monetary loss for you. A credit report of your client can thus help save you from this fate.
Why Run A Background Check
A background check of your client should also be done. This too can save you great grief at a later day. A background check can actually help you weed out an unscrupulous conman from an actual client. Also, on running a background check, you can glean a lot of useful information like the past behaviour of the client during other business transactions. If a background check reveals that the client has a habit of defaulting on due payments, it may be a wise idea to consider not entertaining him or her. Background checks an also reveal other illegal activities the client may be involved in.
How Is A Credit Report Generated
A credit report is generated by taking into consideration all the positive and negative credit related to the person under scrutiny. They are usually generated by amalgamating all their public records like tax filings, monetary judgments, alimony, child support, their credit enquiries based on interactions with their landlords, employers, lenders and the records of their accounts. These include payments made on various accounts including real estate and other investments. Based on this information, a credit score is generated. This can help you accurately gauge your client’s payment potential and is an invaluable tool for any successful business.
