What our clients say
B2B Debt Recovery for UK Companies
Typically, a debt occurs when one party disengages, this can be for a number of reasons i.e cash flow, dispute, poor customer service or workmanship etc. Before instructing a debt collection agency it is always worth giving your customer a final opportunity to resolve matters amicably and therefore we always suggest a final letter or email is sent to them explaining what will happen should they not engage with you. The purpose of this is to show total transparency, a clear escalation process and the 3rd party psychology that a debt collection agency will be instructed.
It is always best to name the debt collection agency you intend to use because this gives your customer something tangible to review. For example if you cited that you will pass the account to a debt collection agency, everyone has a perception in their mind as to what to expect whereas if you stated the account will be passed to Athena Collections a simple search will show that we deal with legal actions and insolvency proceedings (bankruptcy and winding up) also. Our recommendation is to always follow up on your threat, this shows you are serious about your intentions and when we eventually contact your customer it shows consistency in the approach.
