When a buyer asks for a quotation the seller should always provide a pro-forma invoice. A pro-forma invoice is an invoice sent in advance of the commercial invoice, which is the final bill that the buyer agrees to pay. Some of the advantages of pro-forma invoice to the importer include to show to his government for foreign currency allocation, opening letters of credit and most importantly, to have a detailed information on the transaction that can help him plan. An accurate and professionally submitted pro forma-invoice can help buyers to make a decision and agree to the quotation.
Thank Them, and Ask Them to Thank You – must be sincere Money is often a touchy subject, so politeness about it is a good idea. Your clients are paying you money that they’ve earned with blood, sweat and tears, so let them know you appreciate it. You should also invite them to contact you if they have any questions and, more importantly, make it clear that you appreciate their present (and future) business.
Another significant benefit of invoice factoring is the professional debt collection service provided by the factoring company. The factoring company is equipped to handle debt collections professionally and efficiently, leaving your staff to focus on core activities such as creating more sales. In addition, this will reduce your costs associated with processing invoices and handling collections costs.
Apart from your customers meeting qualifications, your invoices must also pass certain criteria. There can’t be any existing primary liens on your invoices, meaning no other company should have a claim on the payments once they arrive. This ensures that the company purchasing your invoices has a clear right to collect the funds in your place.
Don’t Forget: You’re a Designer – must be professional Imagine this, you’re at an expensive restaurant. Every detail is perfect: the food was fantastic, the service excellent and the atmosphere rich and plush. Then, you receive the bill, which is printed on cheap paper with low-quality ink. What would you remember about this experience?
Just about any company that generates commercial invoices can take advantage of invoice factoring. But is invoice factoring right for your business? It could be if your business is struggling to make ends meet because of long billing cycles, you’re wasting time collecting down payments from slow paying clients, you’re unable to take advantage of business opportunities due to lack of funds, or your business isn’t financially strong enough to obtain traditional bank financing.
