Upon your instructions we will write to your debtor giving them 14 days in which to pay before court action will be taken. If the debt arose as a result of both you and your debtor acting in the course of business then this letter may include a calculation for interest and compensation under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.To avoid court proceedings many debtors will pay immediately upon receipt of a solicitor’s letter. However, if upon expiry of the 14 days the debtor has still failed to pay then we will commence court proceedings once we have your instructions to proceed.
Going to court is always a last resort but is sometimes unavoidable if your debtor fails to pay. If there is a genuine dispute as to the amount you wish to claim then it will not be appropriate to issue proceedings upon the expiry of the 14 day letter before action. Instead, we will need to take other action to see if the matter can be resolved without the need for it to be taken to court.
Whether you are owed £50 or £50,000; the matter is straightforward or disputed; we can help you recover your debts and thereby increase your cashflow and the efficiency of your business. For more information please contact James Harvey on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01908 304560.
