Time is your enemy when collecting on a bad check
Managing your accounts receivable is one of the most important aspects of running a financially successful business. When someone writes a bad check to your business and it bounces, your business then takes on the responsibility of trying to locate that person and collect on their bad debt. What is worse is that the bank will charge you a fee for every bounced check that you send them. This means that not only are you not earning any money, but you are actually losing money whenever someone writes a bad check to your business.
Running your business and creating and selling your products is what you are best at. You know how to manage your books and you can balance your budget. However, you are more than likely not equipped to get on the phone and try to track down delinquent customers who owe you money as a result of writing a bad check. You have much more important matters to worry about and trying to collect on a bad check should be the last of them. As a business owner, however, you understand that it is very important for that bad check to be collected. Even if you cannot get the entire amount, you will need to get as much as possible, because you have more important things to focus on. Given this, you should outsource your bad check collections to a national collection agency.
Time is your enemy when collecting on a bad check because the more time that passes between when the check was written and the time you are trying to collect, the harder it will be to collect on that check. It becomes more difficult because the customer may have sincerely forgotten that they wrote the bad check or have even moved and changed phone numbers. A national collection agency allows you to turn over all of your debts and let them worry about collecting on a bad check.
A national collection agency will always be much more effective at collecting on bad checks because they do it as a professional business. The agencies are extremely effective at getting in contact with borrowers who have written bad checks and their employees are skilled at negotiating with customers who have written bad checks. The fact is that even if a business owner were able to get in contact with this type of customer, they would not be as successful at trying to collect on that bad check. Collecting on a bad check is anything but easy and a national collection agency is experienced at doing just that.
Your business should not worry about collecting on a bad check, rather you should outsource all of your collection activities to a collection agency and let them do their job so you can focus on yours.
