If you are an accountant, you not only process purchase and sales invoices, but you also check banking transactions. You set up commissions, write down depreciations, and prepare the VAT return. You are also (partly) responsible for the complete monthly, quarterly, and annual closing. At all times, you ensure that the accounting rules and fiscal legislation are respected.
If your focus is on credit, you ensure punctual and efficient implementation of payment credits and delays.
As a credit controller, you are in direct contact with clients, the debtors, and draw up reminder letters. You carry out checks for duplicate payments, settle disputes, and report on open invoices every month.
As a credit analyst, you go a step further, because you analyse the creditworthiness of the various customers and coordinate closely with your sales colleagues. In addition, you monitor credit management and support KPI statistics and reports.
