Our debt collection service

Q: Isn’t it expensive to use a debt collection agency compared to writing off the debt?

A: This might be true with some debt collection agencies because of the charge a very high set-up fee. With us, this is not the case. We don’t charge a setup fee when the debt is passed on to us. We also charge our fee based on a sliding scale.

For commercial debt recovery, we recover our costs from the debtor thanks to the EU Late Payment Directive.

Q: Your dodgy bailiffs will scare away my customers won’t they?

A: This is something that we hear very often. Fortunately, it is not true.

We only use bailiffs that have been recommended by the court. Also, we save court proceedings as a last resort. We understand that most debtors prefer to make the payments that go to court because of the added costs. Even though we are firm with the debtors, we are also fair and diplomatic. Our unique approach helps us to recover your money without affecting your relationship with your clients.

Q: Can you help me collect on an invoice is two years overdue?

A: Yes. It is possible to collect on invoices that are up to six years overdue. In some case, the period within which you can collect is even longer but, you have to refer to the outstanding county court judgment for this. If you’re still unsure, you can give us a call, and we will give advice on the same.

Q: What if you fail to collect the debt. What happens?

A: Our debt recovery record is very impressive. However, there are some isolated cases in which we might fail to collect the debt. In such cases, we only request for a discontinuance fee to help cover the work that we have done already.

Q: The debtor moved and did not leave the new contact information can you still collect?

A: Other than having a successful debt collection service, we also have a tracing service. We work very closely with very experienced expert tracers. With their help, we can find the individual and proceed with the process of collecting on the debt.
