View this email in your browser Is your customer in calm waters or choppy seas? Understanding who is managing key decisions is often the key to avoiding risk in business
Often businesses find out too late that their customers are in trouble financially or that major changes have been put in place which can then have a knock-on effect to their own business. Perhaps your customer has sold part of the business, meaning that your position as a supplier is in jeopardy. Perhaps a key director has resigned, and you might be required to re-pitch to secure an account. Being in possession of all the facts is vital in business, but with so much going on behind closed doors, how can you be sure that you’re not the last to know?
identeco’s Business Support Toolkit subscribers have that intelligence at their fingertips and all for an annual fee of £79.95. The online portal which operates in real-time allows subscribers to search for directors and shareholders – either by an individual’s full name, company or company number. You can cross-reference with other directorships – allowing you to understand an individual’s current and historic business interests. Get insight into any irregular patterns in their involvement with a company; a short tenure might indicate that they tend to come in and shut operations down. Perhaps they already have a vested interest in another business that offers the same service as you?
With the business landscape moving so quickly and 62% of SMEs struggling with the knock-on effect of late payment, it has never been more imperative that we protect ourselves from risk. For the first time, you can carry out unlimited searches and download reports giving you the intelligence you need to put yourself in the driving seat and make informed decisions to protect your own business.
As well as director and shareholder searches, the £79.95 annual subscription fee includes company searches and access to financial reporting, a unique company health check, a data auditing service to make sure that business data is compliant and accurate, unlimited bespoke marketing and telesales lists as well as reporting on new entrants to market, acquisition targets and a document retrieval service.

Are you doing enough to credit check your customers? Offering credit terms to customers is a solid strategy for building business relationships and increasing sales but with 62% of SMEs reporting that they are struggling with late payments, it’s vital that companies are proactive in making sure that they have a clear understanding of their customer’s ability to pay invoices before setting out terms and conditions.
