Debt Recovery

Each case is different, meaning that costs will be discussed with you following your initial enquiry. Our charges are usually calculated based upon the number of hours engaged working on your case with each hour charged at between £150.00 to £250.00 plus VAT.

For a pre-action letter of claim for all debt values up to £100,00.00 our fee is between £225.00 and £500.00 plus VAT.

If the other party disputes your claim we will discuss the next steps and any further work that may be required in order to provide you with a revised quote and further advice regarding any additional costs that are likely to be incurred. We may be able to act on a fixed fee however if more extensive work is required it is likely we will be required to act on an hourly rate basis.

Debt Value Court fee Our Fee
Up to £10,000.00 £35.00 to £455.00 depending
upon the value of the claim
£750.00 to £1500.00 plus VAT
£10,001.00 £25,000.00 5% of the value of the claim £1500.00 to £2750.00 plus VAT
£25,001.00 to £100,000.00 5% of the value of the claim £2750.00 to £5500.00 plus VAT

You should note:

  • The VAT element of our fee cannot be reclaimed from your debtor.
  • Interest and compensation may take the debt into a higher banding, with a higher cost.
  • The costs quoted above do not include where enforcement action, such as the bailiff, is needed to collect your debt

Our fee includes all of the work in relation to the following key stages of a claim:

  • Taking your instructions and reviewing the documentation
  • Undertaking initial work required
  • Sending a letter before action
  • Receiving payment and sending onto you, or if the debt is not paid, drafting and issuing a claim
  • Where no Acknowledgment of Service or Defence is received, applying to the court to enter Judgement in default
  • When Judgement in default in received, write to the other side to request payment
  • If payment is not received within 21 days, providing you with advice on the next steps and likely costs

How long will my matter take?
If your debt is settled immediately upon receipt of the letter before action then it is likely the case may take just 4 to 8 weeks. However, if we need to issue Court proceedings and obtain judgment then it is likely the claim will take between 6 and 12 months depending upon complexity.
