What We Do Best

The majority of an organisation’s or a business’s financial difficulties are due to cashflow problems. Sometimes, they are not selling enough but more often than not their problems stem from the fact that they are not being paid on time.

Many businesses give up chasing old debt as it starts to cost more than it is worth in terms of lost production time or they just think they won’t get paid. This is because they have tried their usual processes with no success or, in some cases, they cannot find the debtor and think there is nothing else they can do about it.

There is clearly no point in them sticking to an approach that isn’t working. This is where you need to change tact rather than throw in the towel and you need to do so rapidly when the company is in trouble.

In many cases, a financially struggling business can be turned around by collecting some or most of its book debt.

Else are the veteran experts at getting late and old debts paid. When we bring our reputation and formidable legal weight to bear, many people and companies pay their bill after just our first letter.

It is this speed in getting your late and old debts paid which can help you turn around your (or your client’s) business.

Why not give us your ledger or book debts? You might be surprised by how much of your “old and abandoned” debt we can collect for your business.
