Protect Yourself Early in the Game

If a customer cannot or will not pay, you should already have the legal power and information you need to pursue the payment you are owed. Have you already agreed on an interest rate for the late payment? Have you determined where your debtor banks? What court will hear the case if you need to bring a suit against your customer turned deadbeat?

All of this information should be clearly outlined in a credit application or contract. Attorney Alan M. Cohen can prepare for you a contract that works to better protect your financial interests which may include, among other things:

  • Minimum default interest rate
  • Attorney’s fees clauses which reduce or  remove judicial discretion
  • Jurisdiction
  • Banking information
  • Company owner’s name
  • Personal Guaranty

Every business owner, credit manager and controller hopes that customers will pay on time for the goods or services they purchased. A thorough credit application can help provide the protection you need if your customers fail to uphold their end of the bargain. We prepare a soup-to-nuts credit application, terms and personal guaranty for a set fee. Call (508) 620-6900 or email for details.
