Debt Recovery

Protecting your Business from Unwanted Debt

It is an unfortunate fact of business that if you offer credit, some businesses will take advantage, pushing 30 days’ payment terms to 60 days, 90 days or even more. There are even some companies whose payment policy is not to pay until they are contacted by a solicitor or until a claim is issued in the County Courts.

Bad debts impact businesses of all sizes. Not having the money that’s owed to you in your business account means there is less available for pay rises or for investment in the business and can result in fewer jobs being created.

Instructing a solicitor to help with debt collection and debt recovery can really help prevent bad debtors becoming a problem for your business. At Harding Evans, our specialist team includes qualified solicitors as well as being one of the few law firms in the UK to have its own in-house qualified bailiff. We understand the importance of providing a proactive service and draw on existing laws that are designed to protect creditors from bad debtors, to ensure the costs of our services are passed onto the debtor.
