Once you have received a new client who is eligible for commercial credit, the second step that is required from the supplier is to determine your credit limit. There are several ways to improve the credit limit, and that each company must develop the most appropriate, depending on the industry and market.
Credit line will appear on the card of the customer and will be respected by all company employees, because they do not exceed this limit without the permission of the management of financial or Credit Manager.
Department should monitor the risk of credit available to all customers and ensure that risk is a given time limit. To understand the risks we should be less than the available credit limit provided to the customer, the risk is discussed. Hedged risk is obtained by considering not only for the payment of outstanding bills, but also add the order book, orders are billed but not yet served the purpose of remaining maturity and the documents included in the collection to the bank, but pending the results of the recovery.
This is also suitable for inclusion in the risk cover outstanding checks or notes, and because the agreement does not fall into the error of some companies who see the provision of inspection and a letter with a note as a cash equivalent without using the backup account customers. This practice can cause problems not totally adequate in the case of receivables that have not been paid as of the instruments which are dangerous to limit the risk that real customers have paid. In case the supplier has enough information available about the risk of its customers, will occur in the impossible situation in which there is a bankrupt debtor with the unpaid balance exceeds the credit limit provided.
