Credit Applications


How to Write a Credit Application with Teeth

Use Your First Line of Defense Wisely

What should a good credit application do for you? In addition to providing you a basis for determining whether your prospective customer is credit worthy, it also sets forth your terms and what will happen if your customer fails to pay you.

A good credit application should be written with teeth. You need to sink your teeth into customers before they take a bite out of the finances of the company. A credit application should include information about their bank account, their identification, tax identification number and a list of personnel who can back them up.

Although a good application does not need to include all the information detailed above, it is important to carefully decide what information should be collected from which customer. Attorney Cohen helps clients use the credit application to help control their money. The credit application is the first (and maybe the last chance) before making the sale to control the terms and conditions of the commercial relationship.

Do Homework Before Giving Credit

Which of these or other criteria that your company requires depends on both credit and sales risk assessment. Use your credit application to help control your money.
