Easing the burden on small businesses
Most small and medium businesses throughout Australia often have limited credit management processes in place, relying on their debtors to settle their accounts on their own terms.
It is very easy for this process to quickly grow into an unmanageable mess or to increase the strain already felt by owner operator businesses who often manage their books outside of trading hours.

Effective credit management helps businesses of all sizes to stay on top of their debtors and manage their cash on hand more efficiently. When we talk about credit management, often it’s with regard to banks or large companies who have strict processes and large teams of credit professionals in place. They accurately evaluate the risk of extending credit to a business on the basis of a credit risk score they compile from the history of that business’ previous credit, current financial status and any time they have failed to settle their accounts.
This information is likely to be drawn from multiple sources in order to provide as detailed a portfolio as possible and will include information gathered from entities like the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), the Australian Business Register (ABR), Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA bankruptcy data), as well the Australian Courts and debt collection agencies. As a credit reporting agency, we utilise these same sources to gather information relating to a business credit profile as well as drawing on the extensive information we have gathered from our own databases. And we keep drawing on that information. We don’t just offer a once-off credit check on a debtor, we continue to check the credit of that debtor and notify you of any changes to that file which might affect ongoing trade.
