Trade Bureaux Australia
Business is about Risk Management!
Our primary objective is a forum for a group of industry Credit Personnel to gather and exchange factual information concerning a customer’s ability to pay within the agreed terms. This enables participants to identify early signs of risk within the guidelines.
Understanding the risk of a potential or existing customer experiencing financial stress provides invaluable insight. Having this information allows you to make informed credit decisions about which customers you should extend credit to and ultimately supports the mitigation of the risk of non-payment for business in distress.
