Legal Proceedings (Undisputed Debts)

There are four stages to legal proceedings:

  4. Enforcement

We charge a fixed-fee for Sending a Letter Before Action and Issuing Legal Proceedings based on the size of your debt:

Upon entering Judgment, we charge £65.00 plus VAT for debts under £5,000 and £80.00 plus VAT on debts over £5,000.00. The cost of enforcement will be agreed with you in advance, should it be necessary.

Whilst this is still covered under our “Pricing – Commercial Debt Recovery”, if the debtor is a sole trader or an individual, the Pre-Action Protocol for Debt Claims will apply which means we are unable to send out a standard Letter Before Action and must give the sole trader or individual 30 days to respond to the Letter of Claim.
