Overview of the webinar

It is difficult to get everything you need for a credit report as most of them have outdated financial information. One of the best things you can do especially for your major customers is to get audited financial statements. Any account that you sell to that is publically traded has financial statements available on their State’s SEC.GOV website. Once you have the financial statements you now have the information and tools you need to make determinations for. Do you grant them a loan, do we buy our next piece of equipment from them, and will they be around to support the product if something goes wrong? Do we sell to them and how much?

Why should you attend?

  • What’s in a number, if a company has a current ratio of 2:1 what does that mean and will I base my credit decision on that number
  • If I see grocery stores have an average inventory turnover of 45:1 and mine is only 9:1 are we doing something wrong
  • Ratios by themselves cannot always give you everything you need so you need to be resourceful and know where to go to get the answers
  • To accommodate those needs this session will teach you how to use the Balance sheet, Income statement and the Statement of cash flows and the associated ratios along with other tools to help you make a sound credit
