Is your company ready for the tsunami of debt that’s on the horizon?

Due to COVID-19, there has been an increase in the number of vulnerable customers and the risk of bad debt, meaning the risk of higher provisions and bad debt write off has significantly increased. The utilities sector is having to re-evaluate their collections strategies to prepare for these unique challenges.  

 

 

How best to prepare for the surge in bad debt? 

It is vital you review your collection strategies to ensure your people, processes, policies and systems can manage the increased customer contact and number of cases falling into arrears. You will also need to ensure your treatment strategies address the projected increase in fuel poverty and vulnerable customers, whilst addressing those that can pay but choose not to pay.
