According to the Cambridge Business English Dictionary, Debt Recovery is the process of making people or companies pay the money that they owe to other people or companies, when they have not paid back the debt at the time that was arranged. When problems arise, professional debt recovery has proved to be an effective way of regaining lost money. Chasing up late payments is a regular chore for most businesses that sell on credit. An effective approach to debt recovery helps boost cash flow and reduce the risk of overdue payments turning into bad debts.
Issuing invoices and regular statements should be a standard part of your credit control routine - before a payment even becomes overdue. Once a payment deadline has been missed, quick action to chase debts is essential. A personal phone call is often the most effective way to chase an overdue payment. With experience, it can be very easy to identify genuine reasons for non-payment and simple delaying tactics. If there is any kind of problem or dispute, try to resolve it straight away. Persistence and a positive attitude often pay off.
Before starting more formal debt recovery proceedings, it's worth assessing the situation. If the customer is in serious financial difficulties, or if the amount involved is small, you may decide simply to write it off as a bad debt. An alternative approach to debt recovery is to prepare to take court action. The first step is to send a formal letter to the customer/client letting them know what you plan to do. A letter of claim advises that you intend to sue them unless they settle their account by a specified date.
