How to manage credit limit?

The credit limit is the maximum amount of Accounts Receivable that your company accepts to own with a given customer.
It depends on the volume of business forecasted with the buyer, the payment term granted and its financial capacities.

The credit limit is not necessarily the output of the Insurer guarantee and Other guarantees. It is defined with several criteria that can integrate these two fields or not.

In My DSO Manager , the credit limit is managed at the legal entity level. If you have multiple accounts that belong to the same legal entity, the credit limit has to be checked compare to the consolidated receivable of all of these accounts. This consolidation is based on the Legal ID field of customers' data.

There is one credit limit for one legal entity. If you change it in a customer account, it will be automatically updated on other accounts with same legal ID.

Manage CL

This principle is the same for the fields: « Insurer guarantee » and « Other guarantees ».

In the customer Risk report tab tab, information and credit analyzes are necessarily done at the the legal entity level.

In the RiskLink report, receivable data are consolidated at the level of the legal entity in order to have a global view of the exposure with a given company.

It is also possible to update the credit limit in the RiskLink report by entering the amount directly in the table listing the customers.

It is possible to import and update this field with the import of customer data.

A tool to calculate the credit limit is available in the customer sheet, tab Risk report tab.
