//About PICM

Receivables are one of the key economic concepts and the category to be measured in the accounting system. Receivables belong to the group of assets very susceptible to impairment due to the constant risk of default by unreliable contractors. From the point of view of the company – the seller, trade credit is an important instrument in the struggle for the customer – the seller strives to achieve an increase in the number of customers, consolidate customer loyalty, increase market share and, as a result, maximize profits by offering attractive terms of settlement.
