The 4Cs of Credit - JBT is proud to promote the four key elements of credit.  


The personal character of company principals is essential to a business’ credit behavior, and is made up in part by previous employment, prior business ownership or involvement, and education.


Does a company have the financial capacity to meet its obligations?


Is there enough money in the business?

Cash Flow

In addition to capital and solid net worth, what is the business’ liquidity?

International Reach - The U.S. jewelry market presents both opportunity and credit risk for suppliers.  If you are an international company currently doing business (or planning to do business) in the U.S., it is essential that you have information to assess credit risks before you ship.  Membership in JBT provides that information.
