Should You Be Setting Tighter Controls on New Customers?

debt collection MichiganIt’s not a bad idea. If you want to protect yourself and your business, it may be worth trying to tighten controls on your customers. However, you don’t want to tighten the reigns too firm! You don’t want to upset new customers.

To protect yourself, you may choose to adopt some of the following controls:

  • Put the customer on a short leash, such as a 15-day watch list, so you detect a slowdown in payments almost immediately.
  • Be ready to turn off the credit faucet: no credit if no payment.
  • Hold up further deliveries of your goods or services until the customer pays his late invoices.
  • Get additional assurance of payment, such as liens, guarantees, and promissory notes.

Want to Tighten Controls on New Customers? Here’s How!

debt collection Michigan Are you finding it challenging to get new customers to pay on-time?

When you first extend credit, your new customer knows he’s being monitored. For that reason, in most cases he’ll pay the first few invoices on time. After that point, some customers decide that they can relax and pay less promptly because they’ve already earned your respect and are no longer under the microscope.

Get some tips to tighten controls on your newest customers here!

Can you file a lawsuit on expired debt?

Do you have expired claims?

Are you unsure if the statute of limitations has run out?

Are you worried about the consequences of filing a lawsuit on an expired debt?
debt collectors Michigan

Consequences of filing a lawsuit on an expired debt include:

Dismissal and sanctions: When a judge realizes that a claim is beyond the statute of limitations, he or she may dismiss the claim on their own initiative or on the motion of the defendant, and may even assess a fine or penalty for starting a suit that has no legal merit. Sometimes the defendant also receives an award of attorney fees.

Counterclaim: As a result of your filing litigation beyond the statute of limitations, the defendant may file a counterclaim for violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or similar state or local consumer protection acts.

A few states forbid collections lawsuits after the limitations period has run so ignoring the limitations period can put you in front of an angry judge.

Affirmative Defense on Expired Claims

Do you have expired claims?

Are you unsure if the statute of limitations has run out?
debt collectors Michigan

The statute of limitations is what’s called an affirmative defense. That means the defendant must raise the statute as a defense to your collections lawsuit and has the burden of proving that the statute of limitations has run. It’s thus possible to get a judgment on an expired claim where the debtor has overlooked the defense and the court doesn’t notice that the claim has expired.

Is Your Deal Legal?

collection company michiganIs your deal legal? Did you have a legal document drawn up? Are you in the habit of making deals without a signed contract? That’s probably a bad idea. 

When you’ve made an oral agreement, it’s good practice to follow it up with something in writing. Even a quick email stating something like: “This confirms our understanding that you’ll pay $3,000 for 500 widgets.”

Get it in Writing!

collection company michiganYour handshake deal is legal, so why does everybody tell you to “get it in writing?” That “if it isn’t written, it doesn’t exist”? The two main reasons are:

Memories fade: You may have a very clear understanding of your agreement at the time you shake hands or hang up the phone, but what will your memory be like in six months? What will your customer’s memory be? You may both, in good faith, have different recollections of your deal. How do you decide who’s right?

People lie: When your debtor denies that a contract existed, tries to change its terms, or misrepresents the negotiated price, you have no document that establishes the truth.
