Unit 3.2- Costs and Value of Credit[edit]

Credit reports are an important investment of international managers to make. Although sometimes costly, offering payment terms to new international customers without conducting the appropriate due diligence can be much more costly in the long run. Assessing the type of credit reports to obtain and the necessary data to evaluate with help justify this cost.

Unit Objective[edit]

The goal of this material is to introduce you to the cost of credit reports used when extending appropriate payment terms to international customers. This information will also provide you with an understanding of the value of information provided in a credit report. By the end of this unit you will be able to

  • identify the cost of credit reports.
