For immediate release
ST. LOUIS, MO (July 18, 2019) – The Equipment Dealers Association, in conjunction with the Far West, Iowa-Nebraska, Midwest-Southeastern, and United Equipment Dealers Associations, is excited to announce a FREE webinar for EDA members called Dealer Beware: Managing UCC Risks to Limit Chargebacks When Customers Don’t Pay. This webinar will be hosted by Lance Formwalt, shareholder in the Equipment Dealer Group at Kansas City based Seigfreid Bingham.
Dealers are often actively engaged in the process of providing financing options for their customers. Although many customer financing options are labeled as “non-recourse” to the dealer, dealers are often surprised when a retail finance lender assesses a chargeback down the road after a customer can’t pay the lender. Unfortunately, this situation happens fairly frequently and tends to increase when customers are facing tough economic times. In these circumstances, dealer exposure is often the result of not following the correct procedures to help ensure that a UCC financing statement is filed to give the lender a first priority security interest in the financed equipment.
Please join us for this timely webinar to hear Lance explain these issues and educate us on steps dealers can take to help reduce risk on future transactions.
Date: Tuesday, August 6th
Time: 12:00pm (noon), central
There will be time for Q&A with Lance following the presentation.
