Monitoring of receivables for firms

Monitoring of receivables for firms

Overdue receivables are a problem for a large part of companies operating in Poland. On December 8 2022, an amendment to the Act on Counteracting Excessive Delays in Commercial Transactions came into force, which aims to speed up proceedings against debtors with overdue receivables exceeding PLN 2 million.

How to effectively counteract delays in payments by contractors?

Effective verification of contractors and monitoring receivables allows early identification of situations that may lead to late payments by a business partner. Properly formulated provisions of the contract and payment terms will also help to eliminate potential payment gridlocks.

In the event of delays in payments, it is extremely important to conduct the debt collection process in such a way as to recover receivables in the shortest possible time, and at the same time maintain good relations with the contractor.

Key stages of receivable management:

  1. Optimization of the process of verification of contractors
  2. Verification of contracts and terms of cooperation with business partners
  3. Monitoring of receivables and ongoing identification of potential delays in payments
  4. Debt recovery process – payment date reminder, notice to pay
  5. In-court debt recovery
