Atradius 200BIIA member Atradius has just released its Payment Practices Barometer for the Americas:  Cash flow appears to be the biggest challenge for businesses this year.

Businesses in the Americas express concern about maintaining adequate cash flow levels this year, and consider this one of the biggest challenges they will be facing. These opinions are consistent with those of businesses in Europe. In Canada and the U.S., foreign B2B receivables represent a greater threat while in Mexico and Brazil domestic B2B receivables are of more concern.

The September 2013 Atradius Payment Practices Barometer, a survey of B2B suppliers of products and services in Brazil, Canada, Mexico and the U.S., highlights that, despite modest economic improvement, generating and maintaining sufficient cash flow remains a priority. Insolvency trends, slow sales growth, financing and payment defaults all contribute to the challenge.
