Keeping a record of all of your deals


  • Record signed contracts
  • Make sure they go live
  • Live Dates


  • Contract Usage – has this been checked?
  • Supplier Payment Terms
  • Recording when you’re expecting payment files through

Creating your forecasts

Adding actual payments


  • Where to allocate your payments
  • Record start/end period dates


  • Don’t overcomplicate it
  • What does performance look like “as of today”
  • Live Contracts / Expired Contracts
  • No payment made
  • Monies Received Payments / Reconciled Payments


Amending / Reviewing your forecasts


  • Not always as simple as “supplier isn’t paying me properly”
  • Use your account managers to help with forecasting, site closures / COT’s
That's All Folks

In Summary

  • This can be managed on a spreadsheet for 1-2 man bands, but will become more difficult the bigger you become.
  • Good house-keeping is needed for keeping on top of your commissions.
  • Keep your reporting simple. Focus on the bigger picture.
  • Everybody needs to be involved, not just the Finance team.
  • Systemising your processes are the best way to keeping things working smoothly.
