Debt Recovery: (Range of fixed fees) for a business to business debt that is undisputed

Court Claims

These costs apply where your claim is in relation to an unpaid invoice which is not disputed and enforcement action is not needed.  If the other party disputes your claim at any point, we will discuss any further work required and provide you with revised advice about costs if necessary, which could be on a fixed fee (e.g. if a one off letter is required), or an hourly rate if more extensive work is needed.

Debt Value                         Our fees                                              Court Fees

up to £5,000                       35% of value of claim

Plus VAT and disbursements

Anyone wishing to proceed with a claim should note that:

  • Interest and costs may take the debt into a higher banding, with a higher cost.
  • The costs quoted above are not for matters where enforcement action, such as the bailiff, is needed to collect your debt.  Any enforcement steps will attract additional costs, details of which are below.

Our Services include :

  • Taking your instructions and reviewing documentation
  • Undertaking appropriate searches
  • Sending a letter before action
  • Receiving payment and sending it on to your, or if the debt is not paid, drafting and issue a claim
  • Where no Acknowledgement of Service or Defence is received, applying to the court to enter Judgement in default
  • When Judgement in default is received, write to the other side to request payment
  • If payment is not received within 7 days, (or other date specified by court order) providing you with advice on next steps and likely costs (see above).

How long will it take to receive payment?

Matters usually take 1 to 10 weeks from receipt of instructions from you to receipt of payment from the other side, depending on whether or not it is necessary to issue a claim. This is on the basis that the other side pays promptly on receipt of Judgement in default.  If enforcement action is needed the matter will take longer to resolve.
