Approved Debtor Conditions

To facilitate the flow of orders, it is company policy that credit will be extended to all customers who demonstrate both the ability to pay and history of timely payments of debts. The accounts department will periodically review and re-evaluate payment terms and credit lines of existing customers, to manage risks as financial and business conditions change.

  • Once an invoice is overdue, a statement of all outstanding monies will be sent to the debtor.
  • Any overdue invoices will be clearly identified on the statement.
  • Once an invoice is overdue for more than 30 days, and for which no payment arrangement has been reached, a Final Notice statement is sent. The notice is to state that a 30-day stand-down period will be applied to the account, and payment is required immediately. If immediate payment is not possible, the debtor is to contact the accounts department.
