Protect Your Profits

Don’t Rely On Sales To Stay Afloat

1

Problem

Jackie owns a small catering business: one that operates on a relatively good profit margin of 5%. But one of Jackie’s clients is not paying a £10,000 invoice. This means she needs to win sales of £200,000 just to make up lost profits.

2

Solution

With Tradelock Jackie could insure a £10,000 invoice for as little £6.81. She could also use Tradelock to assess the risk profile of prospective clients to avoid being in this situation again.

Sound Familiar?

Do unpaid invoices make up more than 30% of your balance sheet? Can your profit margin make up for any unpaid invoices? Do you rely on credit lines? Will you be charged more if your financial position gets worse?
