Customer relationships are not always sunshine and roses

When the buck stops with you as the business owner, it can feel like
there is always a new fire to put out to keep the cogs turning.

The last thing that you need is another stressful situation to deal with.

Burying your head in the sand won’t help either!

Do any of these problems sound familiar?

Your Terms of Trade package can include one, several or all of the following and we will recommend the ones you need for your business.

WHY WORK WITH LEDGER GUARD?

PERSONAL SERVICE

You’ll work one-on-one with our director and key staff from start to finish, not a sales person who doesn’t understand what it’s like to own a business.

SEAMLESS IMPLEMENTATION

When you’re introducing new documents into your business you want it to be as straightforward and stress-free as possible. We will work with you and your team to ensure all your customers receive a copy of your new terms and conditions and formally accept them so you are fully protected as quickly as possible.

STRATEGIC ADVICE

We don’t just give you new documents and leave it at that. We will help you implement practical credit systems and processes that will minimise your risk and protect your business from slow payers, bad debt, and warranty/liability issues.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

 

“Ledger Guard has given me confidence in conducting my business with new and existing clients with regard to the contractual obligations of terms and conditions of trade. As a builder, the assumption that a client can pay when they feel like it, imposes financial stress and cashflow interruptions which is not reasonable. The full portfolio of contracts offered to my business was customised to suit my operations.  I sent my first commercial building contract to a client who responded to me “Gee Mate, that’s a full-on contract. I thought you were a small builder.” Proof that this was recognised by a commercial contract administrator gives me confidence in the documentation I am forwarding to clients. I have since recommended Ledger Guard to all my contractors. Thanks Ledger Guard!!”
