How does free debt collection work?

At Advocate, we believe it should not cost a single penny to recover payment for goods or services that have not been paid for on time, and the Government agrees with us! Late Payment legislation empowers us to provide a true no cost commercial debt recovery and debt collection solution to businesses of all sizes, in all sectors across the UK.

The whole team at Advocate always endeavour to recover and pay to our clients 100% of the outstanding debt they are owed, and in over 90% of cases we are successful in doing this, within 14 days and without recourse to legal action.

We add statutory Late Payment charges to the amount to be collected from the debtor to cover our costs. You receive every penny you are owed and a completely free business debt recovery and debt collection service. No charges, fees or commission are payable by the creditor.

If it’s not possible for us to recover a debt within 14 days, the client decides if we close our debt recovery file or issue legal proceedings on their behalf. If a client decides to close a file the services we have provided are completely free of charge.

We are not just another debt collector or debt collection agency, Advocate’s expert application of Late Payment legislation and cutting edge financial, investigative and tracing software combined with our vast experience, professionalism, persistence and free to the creditor service makes us truly unique within our industry.

Can we help you with free commercial debt recovery & debt collection?

Advocate’s free commercial debt recovery and debt collection services are available to any business that is owed over £1,000 by a business they have supplied. We have recovered and collected payment of unpaid invoices for over 6,000 businesses of all sizes, from self-employed contractors to FTSE 250 companies. We have collected debts ranging in value from £1,000 to over £1,500,000.

The late payment of invoices creates many problems, at the very least chasing late payers is frustrating and time consuming, it can even mean you are unable to pay your suppliers on time and threaten the working relationships you have endeavoured to build, and in some cases it can be critical, in the UK businesses cease to trade every week simply because they have not been paid and cannot meet their outgoings.

Despite the problems associated with late payment many businesses are understandably reluctant to use a traditional debt collection agency. There is still a stigma attached to the debt collection industry which tighter regulation has failed to dispel. Advocate offers an alternative, a service carried out in accordance with Government Late Payment legislation, the law is on our side and this is just one of the reasons for our successful recovery rate of 93%.

Advocate’s case managers have particular experience and knowledge in recovering accounts in the construction, consultancy, distribution, recruitment and wholesale sectors. Public authority debt recovery and small business debt collection is performed by dedicated case managers.
