Bulletproof My Credit Management

The Ideal Credit Process

Protects your business
Lays the groundwork for any debt collection action needed
Creates consequences of non-payment - you are no longer at the mercy of a court
Ensures you don't issue credit to unsafe busineses
Makes you a secured creditor

Step 1 - Identify

identify
Identifying the entity you intend to do business with is critical - after all, it is practically impossible to enforce an agreement made with the wrong entity.

For example - you pick up Bulletproof My Business Pty Ltd as a customer.
In your accounting system you add “Bulletproof” and send an invoice through.
Everything is fine, as long as the invoice gets paid… but what happens if there is a dispute?
You have nothing in writing and “Bulletproof My Business Pty Ltd” is not “Bulletproof” It makes a huge difference if you know the ABN, the type of structure and when it was started - all clearly identify the customer you intend to do business with.

Being aware is the initial defence you will have against bad debtors.
Completing this step will tell you your Customer's ABN status - you don't want to deal with a cancelled ABN.

Step 2 - Terms

terms of trade
Did you know that a verbal agreement isn’t worth the paper it is written on?
Seriously though, if you do not have terms IN WRITING and agreed to PRIOR to debt being incurred then you have no terms at all.
Let’s put this in perspective - do you want to get paid in 7 days? 30? OR whenever your customer feels like it?
All too often we hear - “We have ‘7 days’ on our invoice, that is enough, isn’t it?” -
NO! It is not - you only send the invoice AFTER the debt has been incurred and at this point it is already TOO LATE.
We create a unique and customised agreement to go on your Credit application to ensure you are protected.

This is often the first "check" you do on your Customer - generally people who do not intend to pay you will refuse to sign our Terms of trade.
This is your first chance to stop a bad debt before it even happens!

Step 3 - Due Diligence

due diligence
Identifying the entity you are dealing with and giving them your terms is a great start - but what if they can’t afford to pay you?
Then where does that leave you? Due diligence is how you gain a more in depth insight into your client.
You need to know if this new customer has not paid other suppliers before - because this shows a pattern and may make you rethink issuing credit to them.
Remember, when you issue credit you are effectively lending money to that customer.
Would you be so quick to hand out cash if you knew they didn’t pay their other suppliers?

Being aware of problems your potential Customer has caused for other suppliers gives you a second chance to stop a bad debt before it occurs.
Know your Customer's past, know their future.


Step 4 - Registration

registration
Did you know that if your customer goes into liquidation, it doesn’t have to mean you lose EVERYTHING?
That it is possible to not only to get paid, but to KEEP the money you have already made from them?
Did you know that you can be secured as a creditor at the same level as the bank?
The PPSA has made all of this possible - but only IF you follow the right process.
We give you the ability to become a secured creditor with a mere click of a button!

The team at Bulletproof really opened my eyes to what I needed to do when onboarding a client.
I had no idea what the PPSR was, how to ensure clients didn't bully me, how to protect my IP or how important it was to do a credit check before taking a client on.
Bulletproof made it so easy and have already saved me tens of thousands of dollars.
