The good management of trade receivables has a direct impact on the result of a company and on its capacity
self-financing. The audit of your credit management processes, from the sale to the collection of your turnover, through all customer contact points (ordering, adv, delivery, invoicing, collection …) will help you reduce your DSO, increase your cash flow, optimize your WCR and reduce your customer credit risks.

Thus, the audit of your trade receivables will have a positive impact on the good financial health of your company. This will allow you to:

  • Grow your business sustainably
  • Simplify your financing requests: better bank loan conditions for example…
  • Better control your operational management indicators

The audit of your receivables covers all operations from prospecting to collection. Each of the steps that lead to collection is important. The objective is twofold. It is first necessary to identify the corrections and improvements to perfectly control the risk linked to the client. Then, you have to find the levers to accelerate each step of the sales-to-cash process to save days or even weeks on your DSO and which will have a positive impact on your company’s cash flow. This audit is practiced within the company and will concern all the people in connection with the customer process: accounting, invoicing, reminders, salespeople, etc.

The audit of your trade receivables takes place in two stages.

Before the accounts receivable audit is launched, our consultants question all of your managers to understand and identify with you the real credit management issues. At the end of this period of questioning, we formalize the objectives and the detailed action plan on specifications.

Once the audit has been launched, we provide close support to your teams at each stage so that they take charge of the corrective and scalable action plan. Then, we regularly measure the progress of the audit assignment through regular progress reports. Once the action plan has been completed, we ensure the handover to your managers. So we make it a point of honor to pass on our know-how to them.

The cost of auditing a trade receivable depends on its scope:

  • The frequency and location of site visits
  • The number of employees involved
  • The number of hours of support that the audit mission will require.

Do not hesitate to contact us to evaluate with us the method best suited to your credit management challenges.
