What a weekend for the Underdogs – Wexford in Hurling, Longford in Football and Portugal at Euro 2016. You’d have got very good odds on THAT treble !!! It just goes to prove that we just don’t always know what’s going to happen. Form and tradition may suggest particular outcomes but nobody tells the underdogs. They just don’t accept that favourites are always going to win.
Isn’t life in general just like that? We think that events will turn out one way and, lo and behold, the opposite happens. The American crime writer, Robert Crais, put it very well “Man Plans , God Laughs”. How true is that? (This is all getting very philosophical, isn’t it?) And while this saying is very accurate, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t plan – especially in your business. Every business needs to plan for the future and, while you can’t cover every eventuality, you can have a plan in place to cover most situations that arise in business. Credit Control is one area where your forward planning can be very effective. Having a proper Credit Control Procedure in place won’t eliminate Bad and Doubtful Debts but it can go a long way to minimising them. Checking out new customers, sending invoices out quickly and asking for your money when it’s due are just some of the elements of an Effective Credit Control Procedure. You should always remenber – IT’S YOUR MONEY – and you’re entilted to be paid for the goods and services that you provide. We’d be happy to have a chat with you and set you on the right path to improving your Cash Flow and getting paid quicker. A quick phone call to 00353 86 3589842 is all it takes.
