Letters Before Action


The majority of our debt recovery cases settle after a Letter Before Action is issued.

The first step in obtaining payment for an outstanding debt or late invoice begins with a Letter Before Action.

We send a single letter requiring payment within a set timescale of 7 or 30 days (depending on whether your debtor is a business or individual). This approach helps to limit the costs of chasing debts

Where the debt is owed to you by another business, we will seek to recover statutory interest (unless you have a contractual interest rate), currently 8.75% per annum, together with statutory compensation, currently £40, £70 or £100 per unpaid invoice depending upon the amount.
