How does it work?

Upon receiving your instruction your debt will be allocated to a dedicated person, who will remain your point of contact at all times.  If you have purchased one of our collection packages, we will send a letter before action to your debtor providing them with details of the debt outstanding and requesting immediate payment on your behalf.

We don’t believe in just sending out standard letters though – we have a proactive personal approach to pre-legal debt recovery which we have found to be effective, reliable and cost effective.  Speaking to a debtor can be quicker and more effective than just writing.

If your instructions are received by 3 p.m. we will aim to send the initial letter that same day or if the matter is complex, the next working day at the latest

For more complex and disputed debts we will agree a fee structure in advance with you – this could be a fixed fee, an agreed percentage of the debt or an hourly rate.

We will always make full use of the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations to maximise your recovery and keep costs to a minimum.  In many cases our fees can be recovered from the debtor.
