Free Debt Collection
So you have supplied a business or company and now they will not settle their account despite your best efforts to get them to pay up. You have sent statements, reminders and maybe even letters threatening formal debt collection action; you have sent more emails, made more telephone calls and left more messages than you care to remember. You have been completely ignored or given one excuse after another and the invoices remain unpaid. You just want to be paid for the goods or services your business has delivered, yet you are left feeling frustrated and angry and you are not sure if you should use a debt collection company or what to do next.
Unfortunately, this is a scenario familiar to businesses of all sizes in all industries across the UK and whether you are a self-employed contractor, work in the accounts office of a small business or head the credit control department of a large national company you will know just how time consuming and exasperating chasing unpaid invoices can be. It also costs money, if your self-employed the time spent on chasing customers for payment could be better spent on what you do best, working and making money, if you employ staff who spend time chasing up payment of overdue invoices, that time is costing money and should be being used in other areas to improve and grow your business.
