Unpaid debts can cause huge problems for businesses. At the very least, chasing late payments can be frustrating and time consuming, but a good cash flow system is also an essential factor to ensure success. When you business' cash flow is affected by unpaid debts it can potentially prevent work from being carried out, or staff being from paid, which may harm your reputation in the long-run.

Forbes Collect is a unique commercial debt recovery process to aid you in the collection of your unpaid invoices. If you're not receiving payments on time, our expert debt collection team will assist you to recover any outstanding invoices in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.

Commercial Debt Solutions

At Forbes Collect, we understand that commercial debt recovery is an essential service for many businesses, which is why our debt recovery solutions are often used by businesses to encourage slow payers to make payment sooner.

We aim to provide an efficient and hassle-free service that makes the process of debt recovery as easy as possible for our clients.

Commercial Debt Collection

Our three-step commercial debt collection process goes as follows:

Step one: Pre-Litigation Process

Our team of expert debt recovery solicitors will start proceedings by sending an initial letter to the debtor, giving them 14 days to pay the monies owed to you, together with interest and late payment compensation, if appropriate. We also send reminders and prompts to maximise our contact with debtors, by text and email if appropriate. If they fail to pay within this timeframe Forbes Collect, with your permission, will then issue a County Court claim against them.

Step two: Issuing County Court Proceedings

If the debtor hasn't made the payment after the initial pre-litigation process, you are within your legal right to commence with County Court action.

You are able to claim for:

  • The amount owed by the debtor
  • Interest (plus compensation, if the claim is in the course of business)
  • Any court fee incurred
  • Specified solicitor's costs

Again, the debtor will then have 14 days, from the date of issue, to respond to the claim.

Step three: Enforcement of County Court Judgments

Once our debt recovery team have secured a judgment on your behalf, there are a number of enforcement options you can take to recover your money. These may include a warrant/writ of control or a statutory demand. Call our qualified commercial debt recovery team on 0800 689 4176 for more information about these options.
