What's your real cost?

Some business owners think that not getting paid for the odd job is simply part of being in business and write it off as part of their tax return to the ATO.  Here, we illustrate the impact that not getting paid for a job has on your business and the importance of ensuring you are paid for your hard work.

It’s not just the cost of the goods and/or services that you have provided.

The real cost is the value of the additional jobs that you need to complete and be paid for in order to get back to a position of breaking even on the initial unpaid job.

Calculate your real cost.

The calculator below shows the real cost of not being paid. Enter the chargeable amount of the job and the profit margin percentage on that job. Our calculator will do the rest.

  • Please enter a number from 0 to 9999999.
  • Please enter a number from 0 to 100.
  • Profit Margin $
  • Cost of Job $
  • Additional Revenue Required to pay back the money lost on the above job $

Time to ensure your business is protected.

I was in a spot of bother with an old account that was still active. This was causing an issue for a loan and was very time critical. I was able to reach Tanya after hours and she not only helped me through sorting it out but followed up to make sure I was being looked after first thing the next morning. Very impressed with Tanya's support and the speed of EC Credit Control.

As a new Accounts employee, this was my first time dealing with EC Credit and they were a breeze. I have called Monika for the smallest of questions and she has been most helpful. I didn't know we could contact them and ask for the advice that I have. I would highly recommend them. Carissa - Navace Pty Ltd

Due to the fast growth of our business and increasing size dollar value size of our orders it was obvious we needed to tighten our trade legality terms to ensure the safety of our assets be they business or personal liabilities. After some positive interactions with Chris last year we decided to meet up with EC just last week to discuss. The information presented was concise and explained brilliantly making it simple for us to understand our current requirements and what to do next. We now have robust documentation to get paid on-time & in-full. Confident for future products with less stress.”
