Credit risk management » How to manage credit limit?

The credit limit is the maximum outstanding receivables that your company accepts to have with a given client.

It depends on the volume of business forecasted with the buyer and its financial capacity.

In My DSO Manager , the credit limit is managed at the level of the legal entity. 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.

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

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

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

In the Risk 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 risk in the Risk report by entering the amount directly in the table listing the customers.

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.
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 ».
