This seminar aims to educate the businesses with the knowledge of Working capital management – managing late payments. With the knowledge gained, businesses will be able to better maintain their business fund.

In 2015, more than half of invoices in Singapore were not paid on time. A quarter of these invoices were still outstanding 30 days past due date. This late payment issue has put a large strain on many businesses working capital and cash flow which limits their ability to grow. Hence, it is important for SMEs to be fully prepared on how best to manage the situation


The session will provide an insight on:

1. Understand the status of late payment in APAC and Singapore.
2. Discover the reasons why your customers are stretching payment terms.
3. Understand the impact of late payment on your business cash flow, including hidden costs of credit terms.
4. Learn how to negotiate payment terms and manage late payment.
5. Learn best practices to increase the chances of your invoice getting paid on time.
