Debt Recovery & Collections

Businesses in the UK are owed billions in unpaid invoices or late payments.  A third of small businesses are forced to write off thousands of unpaid bills each year because they are reluctant to chase up late paying or no paying customers.  At the heart of this reluctance lies a fear of instituting legal proceedings. However, with the correct solutions and support, the process needn’t be complicated, expensive or drawn out.

The first step in the Debt Recovery process is a Letter Before Action which is a stipulation of the civil procedure rules which governs legal proceedings in the UK. Statistics show that 70% of debtors pay back debt owed within 7 days of a letter before action being sent out, allowing you to improve your revenue stream even with aged debts.

You can instruct one of our expert debt recovery Solicitors to draft a letter to your creditors requesting payment of the outstanding debt within 7 days. Click here to complete our easy to complete Instruction Form to get the process started today.
