One solution used is the serving of a Statutory Demand. Statutory Demands are serious as they are the first step towards serving winding-up orders or bankruptcy petitions on the other party.
A Statutory Demand requires a response, usually, the window of time is 7 days from the date of served. This is the first step towards forcing a business into Liquidation or an individual into bankruptcy over an unpaid debt.
However, a demand ending in liquidation or bankruptcy is not ideal for your business. Bankruptcy means it's likely that the debtor will be unable to pay all or any of the amount owed.
If you obtain a judgement Alpha Debt Recovery can assist you in applying for a Third Party Debt Order.
If the debtor has assets our agents can apply for a charging order to secure the judgement against those assets - usually a property.
Applying for an attachment to earnings order may also be a good option for the recovery of the debt, if you know who the debtors employers are.
