Practical Straightforward Solutions

The simple solutions are often the best

A straightforward solicitor’s letter will often get the result you want. It’s a polite but professional nudge that shows the debtor that you are serious. About 80% of the time, reluctant debtors will ‘prioritise’ your payment.

Beyond that, there is a series of measures that we can help you with.

The approach will vary depending on whether the claim is more or less than £5000.

Typical Debt Recovery Route

We can help you manage the escalating process.

  • Send a solicitors letter
  • Follow up with a phone call
  • Obtain further information on your debtor
  • Issue court proceedings (small claims court)
  • Obtain a County Court Judgment (CCJ)
  • Enforce a CCJ to obtain payment

Important issues to consider

You need to be clear about who the debtor really is contractually – ie. whether they are a sole trader, a private individual or a company.

Don’t waste time or money pursuing people and organisations who simply don’t have the money to pay you.

We can help you gather the right information by completing various searches - so you can then take the right course of action.

We offer fixed-fee solutions

All we need to get started are copies of the relevant invoices, facts about the debtor and any governing terms of business. And that’s it.

Call us now

It’s a FREE conversation to work out how we can best help you and your business.

Most of the time we will be able to agree a fixed fee for the work we then do.
