Collection agency

Collection agency


After 2 years in practice I've got my first non-payer.  The total outstanding is £660.  I was just wondering if anyone had used debt collection services, and if they had been good or bad experiences?  Is there a certain level of debt below which it is not economic to chase via a debt collector?

I've already disengaged the client, and told her that the disengagement doesn't forgive the outstanding debt. To which I've obviously had no reply.

To be honest I doubt there's much money in the client's company to actually pay the debt, so not sure if it is even worthwhile, but would like to hear people's war stories anyway.

Thomas Higgins are cheap and efficient debt collectors

However I suggest you use the online court service - Money Claims Online - easy to use and works very well

Small Claims Court

I too have just had my first non payer (they dont usually dare on pain of death!) but this one is a particular case. I'm in the process of using the SMC. Got as far as both agreeing to mediate so we'll see what happens next. I wont be reducing my fee claim tho.
