    European Finance - Cash Collection/Accountancy

    United Kingdom - Last active: 24 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    Cash Consultancy in Europe & French Canada. Do you have difficulty using French and German language to oil your business transactions? Using these languages can help the process in getting your unpaid invoices in French and German speaking territories paid. This is where I come in. Using French and German language skills, I contact by telephone, email and letter your clients, working towards getting unpaid European/Canadian invoices paid into your bank account. I work with your ledger information, the invoice itself and client contact details to help bring the funds in, and this consultancy service is all done virtually, online. The service is not one of factoring, I do not have any physical input on the funds themselves, which are always paid direct into YOUR account. The fee for the service is as follows: 2% commission payment of the net invoice value paid upfront - with a 100% refund on failure to obtain payment back to you ; plus 2% final commission payment on the day the funds hit your bank account. The basis on which the work is done, is of a recurring nature. Cash Consultancy Europe is a service that you can use every month to aid your cashflow in your business.Especially in those, sometimes tricky markets, where language skills can be a real asset in creating beneficial relationships with your European French, German & Canadian French clients. My business statement is that I proactively seek a relatively small portfolio of regular recurring clients with relatively small European/Canadian ledgers. In such companies with these relatively small ledgers, it is not cost effective to employ staff to facilitate cash collection. This is a specialist linguistic - credit control service which can be very useful for the development of your international company - whatever your level of business transactions with overseas territories...........Contact me today for more information
