9 Agenda Basic Credit Management Principles European Perspective on Credit Management Effective Credit Management Organization and Processes Outlook and Future Trends 9

10 The overall situation of EU cross-border business Problem A Business A situated in the EU has a customer in another member country Payment under the contract is made on credit after product or service has been delivered Business A would like to secure payment or at least minimise the risk of non-payment How far can this (1) be regulated by contract and how far (2) can arrangements be made beforehand to safeguard rights of recovery Solution Approach Analysis in two phases required Prospective: involves contract management and credit control Retrospective: involves claims policy and dispute resolution Strategic decisions and a sound understanding of the underlying business required so that terms of trade reflect the nature of the business (e.g one-off vs. continuing business, individual vs. multiple customers) Specific cross-border questions need to be addressed, e.g. Applicable law: scope and choice of the law applicable Dispute resolution: what to go for and how to set it up Procedural / logistical questions: enforcement and required support / cost Arbitration, litigation or mediation: suitability for the type of business / customer 10

11 The legal situation of EU cross-border business EU instruments / policy aims status so far To enable court judgments to circulate freely within the EC/EU with the aim that they should be treated as domestic judgments in all EU member countries To harmonise rules for achieving enforceability of judgments across EU borders and to make procedures for recognition and enforcement progressively easier and less burdensome Harmonisation of rules for determining applicable law Limited harmonisation of service of documents and taking of evidence Approximation of procedural norms with limited unified procedures for certain types of claim Business impact of EU instruments If people and businesses want to take full advantage of the EU's single market, they need easy access to justice, on equal terms in all countries EU-wide rules are needed: in cases of cross-border litigation to ensure good cooperation between courts in different countries so that court judgments can circulate freely throughout the EU The business environment can be significantly improved by: better enforcement of commercial claims simplifying the enforcement of judgments in cross-border disputes (cutting red tape and costs) introducing rules to help creditors recover cross-border debt (63% of which is currently unclaimed) modernising EU insolvency proceedings to help some firms stay in business which otherwise would not survive EU countries are also encouraged to make their legal systems even more efficient and implement necessary legal reforms as part of their economic recovery programs, thus contributing to the policy of the "Justice for Growth" 11

12 Agenda Basic Credit Management Principles European Perspective on Credit Management Effective Credit Management Organization and Processes Outlook and Future Trends 12

15 International Credit Management organization (example 2) Country/Business Unit 1 Acct. # 1 & Credit Limit 1 iwantobuy Ltd Country/Business Unit 2 Acct. # 1 & Credit Limit 2 Country/Business Unit 3 Acct. # 1 & Credit Limit 3 Fragmentation in decisions Overall exposure management is slightly improved Different approach (order control, past due follow-up) Can be better managed with a centralized organization if in presence of a common systems platform 15

16 International Credit Management organization (example 3) Country/Business Unit 1 iwantobuy Ltd Acct. # 1 & Credit Limit 1 Country/Business Unit 2 Country/Business Unit 3 Credit decisions are taken on behalf of the group Exposure management can be consolidated/centralized Common management approach across the organization Can be supported both in a centralized and decentralized organization 16

24 Agenda Basic Credit Management Principles European Perspective on Credit Management Effective Credit Management Organization and Processes Outlook and Future Trends 24

25 Change needs to be actively driven 25

26 Selected trends in credit management Marketing Sales Credit Management Operations... Organisation Staff Controlling Processes Systems Auditing CM Policy Organisation Reorganization of sales and credit mgmt leadership Set-up of shared service centers More efficient processes, reduction of staff in credit management Staff Continuous staff training Providing data analysis expertise to other departments (career steps for credit managers!) Controlling Simplification of KPI systems Redesign of sales incentives (aim: based on profitable sales Processes Improvement of master data management Increasing variety of data for credit decision Systems Implementation of IT systems to generally support the credit mgmt process Automation of (administrative) credit management processes Auditing Investments in certification of credit management processes Use of certifications with external parties (e.g. banks) 26

27 The role of the Credit Manager has changed from being an Accountant to being an Adviser Classic Credit Management: "Accountant for the Company" New Credit Management: "Adviser to the Company" Little communication, many interfaces Economic situation hardly considered ("sales deterrent") Limited use of customer data Marginal use of external data Exceptions rather than clear rules Late / forgotten request for payment Central function in the company Advisory function for other departments in the company (especially sales and top management) Credit policy for determining policy towards risk Use of mathematical / statistical method Use of additional external data sources; link-up of all relevant information Assessment of all customer information Permanent monitoring and early warning system Credit management should serve as an adviser to the whole company! 27

28 But please keep in mind: all optimizations must be balanced between value and cost Euro Value Investment Optimum Cost Best practice Time Individual approach required to effectively balance value and cost! 28

29 Key Take Aways 1 Effectively integrate with sales to boost performance! 2 Holisticly improve your credit management function! 3 Innovate and adapt continuously! 29
