Credit advice

Use only referees selected by you and not by the customer.

Customers are not going to offer names of dissatisfied suppliers. Make it easy for the respondent with a printed form, tick-boxes and prepaid envelopes, as shown in the example below

  • Name and address of business
  • How long known (years/less than one year?)
  • What terms (30 days/60 days /longer please specify)
  • Sales per month (£1000/£1000-£5000/over £5000)
  • Payments prompt? (up to 60 days late?/very late?)
  • Name of payments contact
  • Other useful information
  • Thank you for helping.
  • We will reciprocate at any time.
