Companies often enter into agreements with other businesses in order to obtain supplies or services. These arrangements are often beneficial and can help companies operate as needed. Unfortunately, issues can also arise with these types of business relationships, especially when a company does not pay for the supplies or services rendered. As a result, business collection may need to take place.
Texas residents may be interested in a lawsuit currently underway in another state. Reports indicated that a grocery store chain announced that it would be going out of business, and a product supplier has since filed a lawsuit against the grocery store for unpaid deliveries. The produce wholesaler apparently supplied more than $453,000 worth of produce that the grocery store chain has not paid for.
The grocery store company has apparently not denied that the debt is owed, but they have not taken steps to make payments to cover the outstanding balance. The products were sold and delivered over a three-month period without payment. Neither company provided comment for the report.
When companies do not receive payment for supplies provided or services rendered, their businesses can face considerable setbacks. In many cases, companies may need to take legal action in order to work toward receiving their deserved compensation. Business collection may seem like a drastic step, but if other efforts to obtain payment have been unsuccessful, legal action may be the most feasible route to follow. Texas business owners who have faced such issues may want to speak with their legal counsel about their best options for addressing lack of payment from customers or clients.
