Pricing

The fees involved in debt recovery claims vary and it is not always possible to provide a fixed fee in this regard.  However, we can give you a range of fees, based on the amount of outstanding invoices, whether the claim is simply for payment of those invoices, the values of those invoices, whether the invoices have been properly demanded and whether a letter before action has been sent which complies with the pre-action protocol for debt recovery.

We have fee structures which are on the basis that the claim is a simple debt recovery claim where the fees have been appropriately demanded:

Exclusions

Our fees are fixed and include items detailed above, however there may be factors which would typically increase the cost of the fees estimated above. Where there is likely to be any additional cost, we will make sure you are informed of this at the earliest opportunity and a clear estimate of those extra costs will be provided.

Factors that may lead to an increase in cost include:

  • Correspondence with the Debtor
  • The claim being unable to be issued online
  • The claim not being issued by the Court
  • The claim being more than a simple debt
  • An acknowledgement of service being filed
  • Default Judgment being refused by the Court
  • A defence being filed
  • The need to chase payment of the judgment
  • Enforcement of the Judgment
  • Claim for more than £100,000

Time Scales

The Pre-action protocol requires that the Debtor be given 4 weeks from receipt of the pre-action protocol letter to make payment/put forward payment proposals.  A typical claim will take between 6-8 weeks, from sending the claim to the Court to be issued. This is on the basis that default judgment can be entered 14 days after service of the claim.  Court’s processing times can vary between the respective Courts.

Key Milestones

With every transaction there are key milestones; our fee will include these milestones and may be as follows:

  • Receipt of your instructions
  • Sending a letter of instruction
  • Receipt from you of the relevant identification documents and signed terms and conditions
  • Receipt of the invoices which remain outstanding
  • Sending of the pre-action protocol letter
  • Issue of the claim
