Why you should call CPA without delay

Ideally, business would be easy and everyone would just pay on time without needing to be reminded. Services like CPA would not be necessary and we would happily go do something else. In the real world, suppliers regularly have to wait for payment, leaving them short of money to invest in their businesses or even pay their bills. Chasing slow payers ties up time and other resources that could be used much more productively. When one considers bad debts when customers go insolvent then it can all get troubling. We at CPA understand this and are passionate about helping deal with bad payers and warning of customers in difficulty. We want our members to be able to concentrate on making their own businesses successful.

Perhaps you might have reservations about using a debt collector. There is no need for worry. We are courteous, helpful and almost definitely had direct experience of working with a business like yours.

At CPA, we provide solutions, advice and support in all areas relating to the supply of services or goods on account. You receive everything you need to drastically reduce debtor days and write-offs from the one on-line source.

How It works

No matter how diligently you open new accounts and no matter how robust your credit control is, many customers will simply not pay you on time. They don’t communicate with excuses or apologies they just do not pay.

This may be that they are short of money themselves. Sometimes bigger companies cynically use suppliers’ money for as long as possible before settling an account. Worst of all, late payment may signal financial difficulties and a write-off may be looming.

Maintaining customer goodwill and retaining hard-won customers appear on every business owner’s mission statement – the problem is achieving this and getting paid too!

CPA’s service can be tailored depending on the risk of non-payment and depending on whether or not you wish to maintain an ongoing trading relationship with any particular customers.

When they consider the time is right (often 5-9 weeks overdue), CPA Members input slow-payer information to the system and sit-back while CPA send a carefully crafted series of letters prompting payment directly to the supplier (Member).  The success rate for this service is, on average, 84% with the biggest impact being in the first week. Payment comes to you directly from your customer and the trading relationship continues as before. So you can have your money and your customer too.
