Secure Your Right to Be Paid

In the world of business, cash flow is king. As a trader in the UK, you have the legal right to be paid for your goods and services. When payments are overdue, it’s not just an inconvenience; it’s a threat to your business.

That’s where a debt recovery service comes into play. Atradius Collections acts as your ally, navigating the complex landscape of debt collection UK regulations, ensuring that the law works for you, not against you.

When Amicable Turns Legal

If friendly reminders don’t result in payment, it may be time to escalate the matter. This is where the legal expertise of Atradius becomes invaluable, guiding you through the necessary steps to secure your finances. We understand that going to court is a significant event. We promise to ensure that our clients have a smooth and successful experience.

County Court Judgments: What They Mean for Your Business

A County Court Judgment (CCJ) in the UK is a court order that might be registered against a debtor if they fail to pay the debt. It’s a serious matter with significant implications for the debtor. We guide you through this process, ensuring your business is protected and you understand each step involved.

Our team of debt recovery solicitors are specialists in navigating these legal proceedings, ensuring you have expert guidance every step of the way, from issuing a Letter Before Action to enforcing a County Court Judgment. With Atradius, you have a team of legal experts ready to fight for your interests.

Navigating the legal landscape is essential, especially regarding commercial debt collection in the UK. Atradius provides the guidance you need, demystifying the legal process and empowering you to take informed action.

Interest, Compensation, and Recovering Legal Costs

We provide detailed advice on possible legal action, expected outcomes, and legal costs, ensuring you are informed at every stage. As per UK law, we promise to get back the money you are owed, including the debt, interest, and compensation.

The Letter Before Action: A Critical Step

Before a CCJ can be issued, a letter called a Letter Before Action (LBA) must be sent. This letter gives the debtor one last opportunity to pay within 14 days. Atradius handles the necessary debt recovery process in the UK with professionalism and care.
