What is the Cheque Score?
ChequeScore is a smart indicator ranging from 1 to 99%, indicating the likelihood of the cheque to bounce in the next 9 months. It is color coded to make it easier for you to understand the risk level, with green indicating low risk to bounce, amber medium risk and red high risk. This will help you to decide if you’d accept this form of payment or not.
This is very useful, especially for small and medium enterprises that cannot afford to receive delayed payments, or not being paid at all.Get a Cheque Score now
