YBC Academy : Getting Paid

Prevention of late/non payment
Ideally we all want to be paid on time by every customer. However you can never rely upon this happening so please use our checklist as a precaution to ensure you are not put in a position of having to chase too many slow or non-payers.

Chasing the slow payer
Receiving payments promptly is essential to the success of a business. Use our checklist to make sure you do things correctly when chasing payments.

Chasing a non payer
If your customer is simply refusing to pay, use our checklist to try to persuade them to settle your overdue account without you having to take them to court.

Using External Help
For whatever reason you’ve decided not to go it alone. Where else can you turn to for help and assistance in trying to recover the debt? Use our checklist to run through potential next options.

Recovering the debt
If you’ve exhausted all options and intend to use the legal route, use our checklist to help which explains what’s involved in attempting to recover your money.

Enforcing the judgement
Getting a judgement is fine but enforcing it can still be difficult and how successful you are will determine whether you get paid. Use our checklist to run through your various ­options.
