  38. 38. 38 Credit Risk Control - How a)  Increase your department's participation in industry credit groups to gain additional insights about existing customers as well as potential new customers. b)  Create an internal credit scoring system based on client industry, probability of default formula and submitted financials. c)  Request or require that customers provide financial statements more frequently than once a year…just to be sure that debtor’s credit worthiness is still intact
  39. 39. 39 Credit Risk Control - How d)  If you are selling to a subsidiary of a company, and the subsidiary's financial condition or payment pattern is "disturbing”, request or require the parent company to sign an inter-corporate guarantee. e)  Increase the frequency of calls relating to past due balances, and eliminate grace periods before making the first of these collection calls.
  40. 40. 40 Credit Risk Control - How f)  Insist/require/demand that your collection staff report to you any problems they encounter including: " Disconnected phones " Customers that will not accept their calls " Customers that do not return messages " Unrealistic payment commitments " An outright refusal to make a payment commitment " Customers that refuse to pay large past due balance because of small Dirham disputes.
  41. 41. 41 Credit Risk Control - How " Be more willing to use order holds as leverage to extract payment from a customer that has not made a payment, or even offered a reasonable payment commitment.

Usually, there are a number of customer accounts for which coverage will be denied in full or in part by the credit insurance carrier.
  42. 42. 42 Credit Risk Control - How " Work closely with sales to determine the expected level of sales to each customer. •  Work proactively to try to qualify customers for the credit limits they require - and when you are unable to extend amount of credit requested make sure that the salesperson knows both the credit limit and the reason[s] for your concern about their customers' financial health and/or payment problems.
  43. 43. 43 Credit Risk Control - How f)  Insist/require/demand that your collection staff report to you any problems they encounter including: " If an account becomes seriously past due [for example more than 30 days past due], do not return to "business as usual" once the past due balance is paid. v This situation should automatically trigger a review of the customer account before a decision is made about whether or not to continue to offer open account terms and at what credit limit.
  44. 44. # What are our departmental goals? Identify KRAs? A Key Result Area (KRA) is an strategic process region either internal to the organization or external, where strong positive results must be realized for the organization to achieve its strategic goal(s), and therefore, the organization's longer term vision of success… # What metrics are used to evaluate the performance of the credit department •  What do we do with the results of these performance metrics? 44 Credit Department
  45. 45. KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) are quantifiable measures (metrics) against which a company defines & evaluates it’s progress towards achieving set strategic and operational goals… “You Can Only Manage What You Can Measure” 45 Credit Risk Management
  46. 46. Goal : Increasing cash flow! •  Accounts Receivable performance indicators •  How these KPIs interact with each other •  What those interactions (departmental, company-wide and Customer) mean for your bottom line. Accounts Receivables : KPIs 46
  47. 47. Accounts Receivable Turnover Ratio (ART) measures how many times your company turns accounts receivable into cash during a period; usually over one year. ART= Net credit sales/average accounts receivable •  A higher ratio means you are turning A/R into cash more frequently; if, for example, your ration is 2, you collect average A/R twice a year, every 6 months. The more frequently you are collecting, the higher your cash flow and liquidity therefore the stronger the company’s bottom-line… Accounts Receivables : KPIs
  48. 48. Days sales outstanding (DSO) or Average Collection Period or Days’ Sales in Receivables : is a measure of the average number of days that a company takes to collect revenue after a credit sale has been made. •  This calculation shows the liquidity and efficiency of a company's collections department •  Can be calculated on monthly or annual period DSO = Account Receivables x Period Total Credit Sales Accounts Receivables : KPIs Note : Accounts receivables are reported on Balance Sheet (Financial year) while Credit Sales (Revenue) on Income statement
  49. 49. •  Standard DSO = Account Receivables x Period Total Credit Sales Ø  For example (June Month), if your accounts receivable totaled AED. 20,000 but you sold AED. 10,000 on credit in a 30-day period, you are taking an average of 60 days to collect on your invoices. •  Best Possible DSO = Current AR x Period Total Credit Sales Ø  If your current accounts receivable is AED.3,000 and you sold AED. 10,000 on credit in a 30-day period, then your current debtors are taking an average of 9 days to pay. This should serve as a benchmark to aim for in your standard DSO. Accounts Receivables : KPIs
  50. 50. Average Days Delinquent (ADD) or Delinquent DSO: measures the average time from an invoice date to the date it’s paid. •  Shows the average number of days your invoices are past due and will give you a good idea how well your collection efforts are working. Delinquent DSO = Standard DSO – Best Possible DSO Accounts Receivables : KPIs
  51. 51. Collection Effectiveness Index (CEI) : measures the % of your A/R that are closed or paid within a time period. •  used to determine the quality of your collections (amounts received), not the time it takes to collect them. The nearer to 100 %, the better results you are achieving in your collection efforts. If it begins to drop, you should re-evaluate your credit policies. Accounts Receivables : KPIs Ending Total Receivables Receivables balance at end of 12-month period being reported. Ending Current Receivables Por>on of domes>c open accounts and notes not yet due as of end of 12-month period.
  52. 52. DSO provides insight into collections during one point in time, usually periods of less than a year. •  DSO also is a measurement of time, how long it takes for you to collect on an invoice once it is sent. CEI measures the effectiveness of your collections performance over a longer period of time. •  CEI differs from DSO because it is not a measurement of time, it measure the overall quality of your collections processes. KPIs : DSO Vs. CEI
  53. 53. Credit Risk Management þ  Identify the end goals of the department inline with the vision of the company þ  Prioritize those that are achievable with available resources, in the short term but with incremental benefits þ  Draw out a process flow of how to get to the goals… þ  Review the approach…understand teh current state þ  Make a note of those process steps that really work þ  Start building a set of procedures and policy against the proven process steps..
