New Statements

We have refreshed and simplified our statements to make it easier to know that your account is within credit terms. From February Statement 2020, we are rolling out these changes to all customers. Please see details below on how to read your new statement and refer to our standard trading terms for further details.

Here is the header of the new statement showing your mailing address, Customer number and month of statement due. Also, please take note of your Credit Terms. I.e. 30 Days from End of Statement date. Below we can see that this February statement would be due on the 30th of March 2020.

Below are the various trading lines that have not been paid for.

We have been able to break this down with a total of balance due by date. This clearly shows the amount and the date your account needs to be settled by. Below also shows the total account balance.

If you are outside of terms, then you will receive a handy reminder of the balance that needs to be paid urgently to remain within credit terms provided. For example, there is $10,000 that is still owing from month prior. This will trigger an overdue warning below. (i.e. total balance is great than balance due).

Account escalation – warning messages

Please be advised that any account that operates outside of terms consistently will be reviewed and can be cancelled by our credit department at our discretion per the credit terms.
