Your customer previously said they would pay your invoice, now they are not responding, what can you do?

The best option is to hire a debt collection agency who understands the laws and legalities to quickly recover your money. They know the best techniques to deliver the right results for you.

Here are the benefits of hiring a debt collection agency

1. Specialist Skills & Knowledge

If the electrics need fixing in your home you use a skilled electrician hopefully. So the same applies here! Use qualified experts in the industry to provide you with the best chances of recovering your money.

2. Time Saving

Our team work on recovering the debt quickly for you, whilst you focus on other key tasks in your business. Keeping you updated and contacting you for decisions is a key part of what we do.
If a staff member usually takes up the role to collect a debt for you, using a debt collection agency will free their time to focus on their main role.

3. Tools

We use specialist software to trace, verify and locate your debtor and our software systems manage processes effectively. Monitoring platforms keep us informed with what’s happening with your customer, so that we know if any changes are made with Companies House, ie an application to strike off their company.

4. Rapport building

Some people say that using a debt collection agency may ruin a relationship with your customer. However, I can only refer to the true statistics of what happens with our customers and their debtors.

All of our clients recommend us to friends and business partners, so much so, that 80% of our new business comes from referrals. Plus, the companies who we chase for payments often ask us to do it for them too! With professional processes and techniques correctly in place, relationships are not always ruined.

5. Documentation

Bespoke documents, legal letters and processes play a key part in our high success rate. Most companies that don’t specialise in debt collection won’t have them readily available.

6. Legalities

There are many laws and legalities that regulate and govern the debt collection industry, so knowing what you can and can’t do is important.
Debt collection agencies know what the legalities are and by using one to recover your debts, it reduces your legal risk involved with the recovery of your money.

7. Cost Effective

It’s common knowledge that most debt recovery agencies work on a “no win no fee” basis. When legal late payment fees and interest are added to the debt, recovery costs for you are reduced.

Below are the late payment fees that you can add to a debt amount.

Debt Owed: Up to £999.00

You can charge: £40

Debt Owed: £1,000 to £9,999.99

You can charge: £70

Debt Owed: £10,000 or more

You can charge: £100

For debts over £500, we charge 9%+VAT on the debt amount only. Late payment fees and interest added are yours.

Court fees are payable up front should it get that far, but these fees are redeemable from the debtor. Here is a link to what it costs to submit a debt through the small claims court:

8. People Pay Faster

Bringing in a third party shows your debtor that you are serious and this alone usually makes them more inclined to pay your invoice.

9. Dispute & Query resolving

Often disputes between the customer and debtor will lead to awkward discussions and a breakdown in communications. However, using qualified third party mediators, who specialise in commercial disputes, means you are more likely to get your money and settle out of court.

10. Successful

Using a debt recovery agency increases your chances of getting paid. Our current success rate for business debt collection stands at 90.4%.
