Relationships have priority at all times
Based on a Quick Scan (max. 2 weeks), we will make a specific proposal for a recovery project for supplier revenue. We will execute this project as independently as possible, in order to minimise any hinder for the organisation. We will also take responsibility for the negotiations with suppliers, in consultation with purchasing/category management where necessary. During negotiations, the client-supplier relationship has priority at all times. And so we can achieve concrete, non-budgeted revenue for our clients, without running any financial risk or need for pre-investment.
The scope can vary
In the most extreme scenario, a Recovery project concerns:
- Bonuses, including provisional ones
- Growth scales
- Marketing, media and brochure contributions
- Logistics conditions (fully laden trucks, central delivery)
- Return of trade goods
- Payments for defects/warranty issues and such claims-
- Temporarily reduced purchasing prices (e.g. for special offers)
- Supplier contributions based on volume sold (POS)
- Restitutions from, for example, Stibat (battery recycling) or Waste management contribution
- Unclaimed pricing differences
As a sideline, we ensure administrative hygiene by detecting and solving:
- Double payments
- Errors in VAT bookings (insufficient claiming of pre-tax)
- Misplaced supplier credit notes
Simple clean up of a debtor and/or creditor portfolio (unpaid supplier credit notes) is also an option. When such subjects have been deprived of attention for too long, the corrective action can become so complicated that your own financials lack the time to do so. We correct the situation on your behalf and advise you on future monitoring of the hygiene.
Our people know the ins and outs of administrative and database systems, and can find their way around independently. We understand the entire spectrum from ledger transactions to annual prognoses, and are therefore able to establish facts and make analyses which surprise our clients.
The final report, always generated following a recovery assignment, contains a financial analysis of the playing field and our results. But also an analysis of the client’s processes and the improvements we consider possible. These may be found at the management level, but possibly also in working methods, forms, standard contracts and the provision of information. And so a Recentes project not only gives a positive financial outcome but also an actual and (hopefully) permanent improvement of the organisation.
