Credit Control Tips for opening a new Credit or Customer Account for 2013

A New Customer Credit application for new customer accounts


In the 17 years Creditserve Business Information Ltd has been trading we have been asked on many occasions to assist clients in reviewing their processes and procedures for opening new customer credit accounts.

The starting off point for all businesses should be to obtain a credit application form that needs to be completed and signed by a legal officer of the business, such as a Director for a limited company, sole proprietor or partners for a non limited business.


Please find a list of the most important information that should be requested on a credit application form:-

1. Full Business name and address
2. Confirmation of whether the business is a limited company a sole trader business or a partnership.
3. The correct Registered name and company registration number (for Limited companies)
4. The full name(s) and residential address(es) of the proprietor or all of the partners (for Sole Traders or Partnerships).

As the proprietor or partners are personally liable for the business debt it is imperative that you obtain the residential address or addresses for all the parties.  

5. Within the credit application form their should be a section that is signed by one of the legal officers.
    This will give consent for credit checks to be carried out now and in the future on both the business 
    and personal checks against the owners of the business.

If you require any additional information regarding credit application forms please contact us or complete or online form.

Creditserve Business Information ltd also specialise in providing  bespoke credit information on non limited businesses, which are sole traders and partnerships.
