There is no point in pursuing a debtor for money you are owed if they are unable to pay. You can easily check their status through Companies House searches and bankruptcy checks.

43% of businesses have customers who are more than 90 days late paying their debts

When should you instruct us?

If the debtor is having trouble paying you - it is likely that they are experiencing financial difficulties and owe money to other creditors too. This which makes it essential you take action before it is too late.

Is court the best option?

Going to court has its place but is not always the best way to ensure debt is recovered. We use to the most effective and speediest pre-court methods to ensure recovery of the money you are owed.

Claiming Compensation from the debtor

Under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 you are entitled to recover compensation from the debtor, due to their late payment. This compensation is in addition to their repayment of the amount owed and any interest.

If we are successful in recovering compensation, it will go towards covering the cost of instructing us to recover the debt on your behalf. We will always seek to recover compensation from the debtor: however, this can only be recovered where the debtor is a business.

The amount you are entitled to recover is dependent on the amount owed and the number of outstanding debts.
