5 reasons to use a Debt Collection service

These are tough times for UK businesses. In September 2021, the number of businesses based in England and Wales to go bust was the biggest since the start of the pandemic. According to the most recent data from the Insolvency Service, the month saw 1,446 insolvencies registered, representing a 7.2% increase on August’s number and a 55.8% rise for September 2020.

One of the factors that can contribute to insolvency is unpaid debt. Outstanding debts use up time and resources to chase, and if they remain unpaid, they can have a major impact on cash flow. Yet the rules around debt collection can make the process feel like picking your way through a minefield.

That’s why businesses in the UK are increasingly turning to Professional Business Debt Recovery services, which have the experience and expertise to recover your debt while maintaining customer and other business relationships. Here are five reasons to speak to a Business Debt Recovery service.


Debt Collection Service Get Results


As specialists in this area, professional Business Debt Recovery agencies can be fully focused on the business of national or international debt recovery every day. They will be able to employ tried and tested debt collection strategies and will be able to navigate through the complicated rules around debt recovery. Not only will you get better results, but you will also be freed up to concentrate on running your business.


Debt Collection Service and Document Management


Sometimes, when all measures to collect a debt fail, it is necessary to pursue court action. In this case, you need to ensure that all the relevant details are correctly recorded to present to the court. A legal firm could charge significant amounts of money for this service, but a professional Business Debt Recovery company will ensure that all documentation is in order.

Extra Insurance


As mentioned above, the process of recovering debt can be complicated, due to the ever-changing rules and regulations in this area. If you attempt to recover the debt yourself, you may find you fall foul of the rules on a technicality, which could enable the debtor to avoid or postpone payment. By using a Business Debt Recovery specialist, you can be assured that all actions taken to recover the debt will be in line with the law, offering you insurance against legal implications.
