Fraudulent companies masquerading as legitimate businesses has never been a unique or novel concept. Whether it be the charlatans of the 15th century, or the Enron's of the 90's, there has been no shortage of illegitimate gains through deception. 




New York Court
New York County (Manhattan) and Kings County (Brooklyn) in the Civil Court which is in all matters of less than in $25,000.00 in those counties. I have been advised by the court service that judgment entry is substantially delayed and that we cannot expect judgments to be entered whether contested or even on default to be entered for some 9 to 12 months from the date of submission. These circumstances further emphasize the absolute importance as to why all business people should take care to properly document and have all understandings with their companies in writing.

Business stability and viability is not static ---ALL things change!

The sooner your Credit Manager can identify changes the better prepared you are to take appropriate action therefore a regular schedule where ALL customers are required to update their credit application is highly recommended. This is also the one of the best and most cost-effective ways to identify credit risks before they become profit drains.

PICB recommends that credit applications should be renewed annually which includes a re-statement of your terms and conditions.

To help the process PICB has prepared a simple letter that can be sent to your customers along with your blank application, just click on the below link and download this to your computer, then you may make any changes you deem necessary.

Remember, the application is not where it ends - Once done, if there are changes the facts should be reviewed again as well -- PICB's provides a discount for CRA -Rechecks.
