Deciding on whether to extend credit to a potential customer, increase the credit line of a present client, or to stop selling to one is by no means an easy decision in today’s uncertain economy. Credit reports enable you to evaluate if you are going to get paid—the bottom line. The reports demonstrate the company/owner’s management proficiency. Are there bankruptcies, state/federal tax liens, judgments or collections? How are other suppliers paid? What are the historical payment trends? All questions that need to be considered before saying YES.
