Our credit control services can work confidentially as part of your own finance team so that debtors aren’t aware a third party is involved.

Our Services:

Credit Control

We get to the root of underlying credit control issues and work out why your cash flow is suffering from poor credit control. We will critically analyse your existing processes and make expert recommendations.

Single / Multiple Debt Recovery

Our pre-legal debt recovery specialists have a wealth of experience in maximising debt recoveries for our client, from a single unpaid invoice through to a ledger of multiple invoices and potential bad debts.

Sales Ledger Management

Cash flow is your lifeblood and it all stems from your sales ledger. Our team specialises in sales ledger collections both for businesses and for lenders – to ensure bad debts are mitigated against.

Support during

Covid-19 Outbreak

For many businesses, the recent coronavirus outbreak across the UK and wider world has brought operations to a standstill. In many cases that means invoices not getting paid, and credit control teams on furlough. We’re actively supporting a large number of businesses at this time to ensure credit control – and therefore cash flow – doesn’t come to an abrupt halt.

Sometimes we might only be able to recoup part of the ledger – particularly if the debts are from years ago. But our recoveries record is exceptional and we’re confident in providing the most effective pre-legal service you can find.

From invoicing the day goods and services are delivered, to maintaining regular contact with your customers, there are a number of key aspects in maintaining successful credit control. We provide in-house credit control training to ensure your invoices are paid on time – ask us how we can help.

Yes – we help businesses, banks, and lenders with both single and multiple invoice recoveries. For single debt recoveries, we stipulate a minimum debt of £5,000.

In a word – evidence. This plays a key role in successful debt collections. Evidence-backed collection certainly makes things easier when the appropriate paperwork or message trails can back up any collection – but our experience helps us negotiate and recover in other ways too when you’re lacking supporting evidence.

Yes – we can work confidentially as part of your existing credit team so the debtor doesn’t know there is a third party involved in chasing debts.
