CLI Debt Collection Agency in 2022 – Happy New Year from our Team

2022 will see the start of our 14th  year of trading. Thankfully, we have, so far, managed to keep in a reasonable shape throughout the COVID period, and rather than bringing us bad luck or misfortune our 13th year of trading has brought with it some sort of a new beginning.

COVID has forced us to become more efficient. We have invested in new technEmail Jamieology and worked hard to improve our systems and our ways of working. This has generated very good results.

We start 2022 with great plans to support our clients’ fragile financial health. More than ever, good cashflow practices will help companies recover from the financial difficulties COVID brought with it, which many businesses are still experiencing.

CLI – Your Debt Recovery Agency in Kent offering Debt Collection Services in Kent

So why can it take longer to recover a debt overseas? There are a number of factors that can impact the process. These include:

  • Language barriers
  • The impact of international law
  • Time differences
  • Effectiveness of the legal system
  • Cultural issues
  • Lack of Statutory late payment sanctions
  • Attitude to debt

Although these factors can cause significant delay, that is not a reason to put off tackling an international debt. The longer it remains unpaid, the greater impact it will have on your cash flow and the less likely it is that you will ever be able to recover it.

Credit Control Solutions

We will relaunch the CCS (Credit Control Solutions) brand, which we acquired a couple of years ago.

In the eighties, CCS was one of the leading providers for Credit Control Outsourcing solutions. CCS’ founder Jamie O’Connell has joined the CLI Management team and is ready to go again.

This new offering will be totally tailored to our clients’ needs and requirements.

For the one-man-company, we are able to generate quotes for their customers to approve, ask for an initial deposit prior to starting the work, generate intermediate invoices throughout the project, chase for timely payment, issue further orders for any additional work required and get these approved so there are no queries on completion of the work.

For those of our clients who are equipped to raise their orders and their invoices, we are ready to take over all their Credit Control activities, in their name or in the name of CCS.

Our Credit Control outsourcing service is fully flexible. We can intervene at any stage of your order to cash process and we can charge per task, or on a commission basis, usually between 0.5% and 2% of your turnover.

Look out for our new website which should be released on 1st April 2022.
