Letter Before Action

Issue a Letter Before Action

The first action we will take in recovering your debt is to send a Letter Before Action to your debtor. For instructions received before 2pm, the letter will be sent on the same day and within 24 hours if after 2pm. The letter before action will demand payment within either 3 to 7 days (depending on your requirements). Your debtor will then understand that you take late / non-payment seriously and that you are actively pursuing them. In the majority of cases payment is received within the deadline set in our letter.

In most cases you are also entitled to charge interest and an administration fee on your invoice debt and this could cover your costs of sending a Letter Before Action, so you have nothing to lose.

If you want us to send a Letter Before Action simply provide us with your details, details of your outstanding invoices and the debtors name and address and we will do the rest.

We believe our fees should be reasonable, easy to understand and with no hidden charges or extras. We recognise the need to ensure that recovering your debts is always cost effective. That is why we let you know in advance how much it will cost to recover each debt.

By using tried and tested methods aided by state of the art IT systems and commercial common sense we are able to offer a rapid turnaround at very competitive rates.

Cost

Although the fee for the Letter Before Action is not always recoverable from the debtor, it does cover all work we carry out on your behalf up to the issuing of Court proceedings (e.g. follow up telephone calls to your debtors, reporting back to you and negotiations with the debtor).

Our charges are straightforward:

  • All claims for unpaid invoices  - £50 plus VAT
