If your debt cannot be collected through pre Court action correspondence and telephone calls, we may advise you that it is commercially viable to issue Court proceedings. If you decide to do so, then our team will sue the debtor for the original debt plus any interest or compensation you are due.

Through Court action, we will continue to pursue your case and liaise and advise you throughout the process. We would most likely recommend that appropriate searches are carried out to check the credit rating of your debtor before you start Court action in all cases. Additional fees will be payable for these searches – but we will discuss them with you before they are incurred.

Our fees for this service will be charged on a fixed fee between £100 to £200 plus VAT, in addition to the fee plus VAT, permitted by Court rules. A more detail breakdown of our costs can be found here:

Obtaining a Court judgment

If the debtor does not respond to your claim in accordance with the Court’s prescribed rules, you will be entitled to request a Court judgment. When obtaining a Court judgment there is a fee payable to us of £50 plus VAT, plus the recoverable fixed Court fees plus VAT, as outlined below:

Fixed costs on entry of judgment in a claim for the recovery of money, goods or services provided

Where the amount of the judgment exceeds £25 but does not exceed £5,000

Where the amount of the judgment exceeds £5,000

Where judgment in default of an acknowledgment of service is entered £22.00 £30.00
Where judgment in default of a defence is entered £25.00 £35.00
Where judgment is entered on an admission £40.00 £55.00
Where judgment is entered on an admission (or an admission  of part of the claim) and  the court decides the date or time of payment £55.00 £70.00

The Court rules allow you to recover some of these sums from the debtor, although the exact amount you can recover changes from time to time.
