Chasing payments in a pandemic.

This week Frankie Tortora and Steve Folland have a chat in response to a question from accountant Caroline Boardman. She says:

“How should we chase payments in this climate? When you know times are tough for people but you need to get paid too, what’s the best way to approach credit control?

As an accountant, I am in the position of knowing more than most about my clients’ finances, so it is tricky to chase a late payment when I know they really don’t have the cash in the bank! Should we just be leaving it at the moment and chase after lockdown? Should we just be doing what we usually do? Or is the best thing to do to offer payment plans? Help!”
