Vendors will hold onto your old credits and overpayments…
Our Vendor Credit Audit ensures that all unrecognised credits and cash balances due to your business are verified and claimed, leading to an instant improvement to your net profit and cash position.

This audit is carried out 100% off-site at our offices to minimise any disruption to your business and all claim items are pre-authorised with the vendor in question. Our fees are only due when you have received financial benefit via refund or realised deduction from the vendor account.

As all claims are pre-authorised and available on our Portal, ongoing Client time to support our Vendor Credit Audit is minimal, perhaps 1 or 2 hours per week maximum. The return on this time investment is very significant.
