Business Debt Recovery
With effect from 1 October 2017 the Debt Recovery Protocol applies to any business claiming payment of a debt from an individual or sole trader. It does not apply to business to business debts. If you are a business and owed money by an individual or sole trader, please refer to our Business Debt Recovery section.
For taking instructions and sending a Letter of Claim we charge £9.50 plus VAT. Our fully computerised but personal service offers a speedy and cost effective means of recovering debts at all levels through three straightforward steps:
Step 1: This step alone will often result in payment. Provide us with a copy of your outstanding invoice(s) or statement of account with full contact details of the debtor, details of the debt owed and how it arose. We send a Letter of Claim requesting payment within 7 days, warning of Court proceedings in the event of non-payment.
Step 2: The majority of costs are normally recoverable from the debtor. If, at the end of the 7 day period, payment has not been made or a suitable repayment plan has not been agreed, we will advise you of the options available to you and their associated costs.
Step 3: If Court proceedings are commenced we will apply for judgment as appropriate and advise you regarding suitable enforcement steps. If a Defence is submitted we will advise you of its merits and the most cost effective way to proceed. You will be consulted at each stage.
It is important to remember that you do not need to issue Court proceedings. If proceedings are taken and defended, we can help guide you through the legal process.
You are best placed to decide whether or not the debtor is able to pay or simply unwilling and we encourage you to inform us of your thoughts from the outset. Where a genuine dispute is foreseen or emerges, or you instruct us to enter into correspondence with the debtor, we will handle the case and fees will be charged on a time basis.
For taking instructions and sending a Letter of Claim we charge £9.50 plus VAT.
