You can quickly reduce the amount of bad debts your business writes-off each year and improve cash-flow by minimising the amount of outstanding monies owed to it.

Fixed-fee debt recovery solicitors

Our debt recovery solicitors provide a unique fixed-fee debt recovery service that separates the process of recovering an undisputed debt into three distinct stages of escalating seriousness. There is a single fixed-fee associated with having a debt recovery solicitor implement each individual stage. In 96% of successful cases, debts are recovered at Stage 1, making the service extremely cost-effective*.

  • Stage 1: Solicitor’s letter and chasing call to your debtor threatening County Court or insolvency proceedings
  • Stage 2: Issuing a County Court claim or statutory demand against your debtor
  • Stage 3: Taking enforcement action

The fixed-cost of recovering your debt will depend on the total amount of debt outstanding, but fees for Stage 1 start at just £55 +VAT. 96% of successful recoveries are achieved at Stage 1*.

Our innovative and fixed-fee debt recovery service enables you to decide, from the outset, exactly how much you wish to invest in recovering a bad debt and how far you are willing to take legal proceedings in each case. This will depend on the value of the debt, the number of outstanding debts and the debtors financial position. If you are uncertain as to whether you wish to chase a particular debtor for payment, our debt recovery solicitors can give you some initial advice on viability to help you decide.

Claiming compensation from the debtor

Under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 you are entitled to recover compensation from other businesses, due to their late payment of your invoices. This compensation is in addition to their repayment of the principal amount owed. Homes & Hills' debt recovery solicitors recover compensation for clients in 73% of successful cases*.

If we are successful in recovering compensation, it will go towards covering the cost of instructing Holmes & Hills debt recovery solicitors to recover the debt on your behalf. We will always seek to recover compensation from the debtor: however, this can only be recovered where the debtor is a business.

The amount you are entitled to recover is dependent on the amount owed and the number of outstanding debts. Your debt recovery solicitor at Holmes & Hills will advise you on seeking this compensation.

Recovering debts where the debt is disputed

If you debtor claims that they do not owe the amount you are demanding, or they owe you a lesser amount, this will fall outside of our fixed-fee debt recovery service as this will often be deemed a contractual dispute. We can still, however, offer you the specialist advice you need to recover your debt.
