commercial debt recovery

Is your business suffering because your customers aren’t paying you?  Would you like to improve your cashflow and working capital?  We can help.

Our Goal

During the last economic downturn, our clients began to ask if we could help recover bad debts from their customers.  We wanted to help, so we created a team within our firm who specialise in just that.  We aim for the best recovery rate possible, and our expertise means that we achieve a successful outcome in over 90% of the cases we pursue.

Commercial Debt Recovery

Cashflow is the life blood of any business and here at Backhouse Solicitors we help you keep the cash rolling in.

We offer a range of personally tailored debt recovery options, and we will work with you to find the approach that best suits your business.  We can assist with anything from one-off debts to completely outsourcing your credit control function.

Why should you instruct us?

  • A tailored debt recovery service for your business.

  • A dedicated manager appointed to your cases.

  • Fixed fees starting from £350 to recover undisputed debts OR discuss with one of our experts our no collection no fee service.

  • A full litigation service available for disputed debts.

  • A straightforward letter writing service available to chase slow payers.

  • Proactive, simple and cost effective debt recovery.

  • Our collection service is professionally regulated, so your reputation is never put at risk by dubious practices.

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.

A unique service which we also offer is a free assessment of your credit control function. We visit your office to meet your staff and understand how your existing credit control operates.

How will this benefit you?

  • We will give you feedback on what you are doing well, and what areas you could improve.

  • We will teach you how to avoid the common pitfalls.

  • We might even be able to recover debts that you have previously written off.
