RUN A TIGHT SHIP WHEN IT COMES TO IN­VOICES

Fiji Sun - - Tech World -

A per­son who has poor eat­ing, ex­er­cis­ing, and hy­giene habits isn’t in a strong, healthy state.

Tak­ing care of your body is im­por­tant. You can ap­ply this prin­ci­ple to your busi­ness’s fi­nan­cial health, too. “Sloppy in­voic­ing habits can lead to lost prof­its and tense re­la­tion­ships be­tween you and your cus­tomers,” says Frank Kasi­mov of Busi­nessLen­derMatch.com. To avoid this pit­fall, en­gage in good in­voic­ing prac­tices.

Be to­tally clear and trans­par­ent about pric­ing, cov­er­ing ev­ery as­pect thor­oughly and ask­ing ques­tions to en­sure that you are be­ing un­der­stood.

Credit check your new cus­tomers, and ask for a deposit when a cus­tomer makes the or­der.

When billing time rolls around, send the in­voice on time, and ask for ac­knowl­edge­ment that it has been re­ceived.

Hire a spe­cific per­son to mon­i­tor and chase down un­paid bills, and con­sider charg­ing late fees to mo­ti­vate your clients to pay on time.
