Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

BHETA launches credit forum for DIY Suppliers

Published: 3 April 2020 - Alex Fordham
 

The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) is launching a new series of credit crisis forums tailored specifically to the needs of its DIY supplier members. 

The first event will take place as a video conference on Wednesday 8th April at 10 o’clock; and will then be repeated either fortnightly or at intervals to be agreed by the delegates.

The forums are open to credit control and finance professionals as well as managing directors and business owners from member companies working in the DIY sector.  Hosted by Let’s Talk Credit, Experian and AON Credit Insurance Brokers the meeting will include discussion of specific retail accounts’ payment terms, credit insurance and insolvency law as well as discussion as to how different companies are handling the impact of Covid-19.       

BHETA’s Chief Operating Officer, Will Jones explained, “This event is a free ‘taster’ for our DIY members.  The housewares equivalents are very popular; and feedback is always positive in terms of useful content and a friendly atmosphere.  In the current crisis, businesses need to try and work together more than ever, so we hope to get a good response from delegates keen to support each other at this very challenging time.”

The event will be conducted via Zoom.  To register interest, or for further information, contact Nicola Adams at the BHETA Member Services Team on 07946 078566, or alternatively, email on na@bheta.co.uk
