It is important for a new business owner to avoid bad debts as much as possible, because bad debt would only make your business stagnant, as a new business owner, you should be thinking of growing your business to a stage where it will standout and become a successful well-known business.

It is very important for newly established business to avoid bad debt at all cost
Bad debt can have a detrimental impact on a business, putting its survival at serious risk. Majority of startups will face financial challenges at the early stage in business and that can lead to early closure of once promising business.

what is the best way to reduce bad debt?
the very best way to reduce bad debts is to enact a policy that will let all customers know that the company isn't selling on credit anymore. those who will stay will stay and those who will not will not, also you need to stop selling on credit and at the same time communicate your feelings with the customers

The way i have been able to avoid bad debt in business is just by cutting off some staff that doesn't need to be in my business like that and monitoring the business closely so that I won't run at loss at the end of the day

In my country we apply different methods, the main one is not to give anything on credit, but if you still do, you must ask for a guarantee that is proportional to the cost of the product. In other cases a document guaranteed by the bank is signed, in the absence of payment the bank cancels the debt, deducting it from the client's account.

You just have to be very positive and also state your business terms and conditions on your business documentation and also you should ensure you set some realistic credit limits

Once you know the financial capacity of the business nothing should make you incure debt on the business. You wouldn't want to go beyond the capability of the business because if you do the the debt will set in and this not good for the sustainability of the business.
When a person start their own business he faces many
problems like bad debt.So you have a proper plan to set the buisness.some customers are buy everything on loan some people have not financial backup so sustain their buisness

Debt in any form is detrimental to the growth and survival of a business. The worst form is the bad debt. Debt can be avoided in a business by creating and maintaining a good business policy. Such policy could be a zero tolerance for service at credit and money-before-service policy.

Bad debt is an expense that a business incurs once the repayment of credit previously extended to a customer is estimated to be uncollectible. Bad debt is a contingency that must be accounted for by all businesses who extend credit to customers, as there is always a risk that payment will not be received

You can avoid bad debt in business. Even if you want to get loan to start a business, you must be sure that the business is capable to swallow the amount you use to start the business and also give you left over.

One of the ways to avoid debt for a new start up is to reduce or totally eliminate unecessary borrowing to fund any sector of the business that the ruturn is not feasible.

Avoid taking loans when it comes to business. Taking loan is always a risk and if you suffer from loss, you will be in bad debt. Many people suffer from huge financial problems after taking a loan that they were not able to pay. Moreover, only give credit to reliable customers who you can trust.

Debt? I would rather not do the business than to ask for loan or borrow money! For business I'm yet to start.
Quote of knowledge!
Ensure you don't have one stream of income! Ensure you make friends that are better than you mentally

Avoid bad debt by avoiding debt as much as possible; that's what I believe in.

If you find yourself really in need of the debt, it's best to make sure you have an exit strategy, i.e an asset you can use to pay back.

Well I am very shrewd with the spending of my business fund. I mention that every morning that goes out is meant for acquiring assets less liability. the answer to bringing more cash flow into the business and help to sustain it. This is how I have been managing to prevent bad debt in the business.
